We are delighted to introduce our latest harvest oil which comes from our own Mirabello Estate in North East Crete; the olives are grown using entirely organic methods, hand picked just as the olives are turning from green to black, and pressed within 3 hours of picking; the acidity of the December 2020 crop is superb, at 0.2%, and the oil is extremely high in polyphenols (>500mg/kg), meaning it is highly anti-oxidant (and thus healthy!)
Cretan Liquid Gold Organic is consistently one of the best extra virgin olive oils available in the UK. Produced by a prize winning private estate in Crete, it is a favourite with olive oil experts and famous cookery writers including Nigella Lawson (who rates it as one of her 5 kitchen essentials) and Thomasina Miers, and the latest Masterchef UK winner, Irini Tzortzoglou.
It is made from the first cold pressing of hand-harvested koroneiki olives. It is of low acidity and has excellent health and organoleptic properties. It is ideal for dips and salads, but also one of the best oils to cook with
