35°N Extra Virgin Olive Oil - First Edition
Winner of the 2019 Great Taste Award - 35°N Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil in designer 500ml (16.9 fl oz) white glass bottle.
Our olive oil is produced from a single olive grove located near Kria village in Sitia region, where the 35th parallel north crosses the mountains of Crete.
The surrounding region is known for excellent quality olive oil. The distinctive soil composition and micro-climate of the area provides lots of sunshine, hot summers, mild winters, little rainfall and predominant winds to create the perfect conditions for growing Koroneiki olives.
Koroneiki variety is the most common in Greece amongst oil producers. For more than 3000 years this variety was cultivated in Crete. Koroneiki fruits are small and the yield per tree is quite low. Consequently, the olive oil produced is of the highest quality with extremely low acidity, which is rarely higher than 0,3%.
Olive trees are pruned every few years to keep them smaller in size in order for olive fruits to be more exposed to sun and air. Olives are handpicked and transferred to the mill where the oil is pressed using a cold-press method to preserve its quality and taste.
35°North Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes in 500 ml (16.9 fl oz) First Edition glass bottle.
The bottle is coated in white matte color which protects the olive oil from direct sunlight and reduces surface temperature so you can enjoy the freshness and quality of the contents for longer.
It is gorgeous to look at and pleasant to hold due to its pebble like surface texture. Cork lid with included pourer provides a convenient way to effortlessly pour the product over your food.
The bottle is 100% recyclable.
Our olives are handpicked and transferred to a nearby mill where the 35°N Extra Virgin Olive Oil is extracted using a cold-press method to preserve its quality and taste.
The extracted oil then stays in oxygen-free containers for a while in order for it to settle naturally before bottling which reduces the need for filtering and increases the amount of preserved polyphenols.
Each bottle is then filled with olive oil and passes a multi-step manual quality control process before being packaged for final delivery.
"On the nose, this is gentle and appley without overt grassiness. On the palate, it is very light, but with distinct fruit to start, moderate bitterness following and a restrained note of pepper on the finish - a competent oil which would suit other gentle flavors" - Great Taste Award 2019 Judges.
Koroneiki variety is highly acclaimed for its fresh fruity aroma, smooth and full taste - which is what you will experience by tasting 35°N Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
