Olive oil has been described as the elixir of eternal youth. It’s a rich source of healthy fats, antioxidants and vitamin E. It’s been proven to help lower cholesterol, and can contribute to a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease. Some of the longest-lived populations in the world are found in olive-growing regions.
It takes around 5kg of olives to make a litre of olive oil, and each tree can produce enough olives in a year for between 3 and 10 litres of oil. After harvesting, the olives are pressed to extract the oil, water and any unwanted flavours are separated out, and the oil is filtered before being bottled. Only then can it begin its journey to your kitchen.
Extra virgin olive oil (or EVOO for short) is the best there is. It comes exclusively from the first pressing. This cold-pressed oil is the only kind that we sell here at Oil & Vinegar. Olive oil from different regions will have different flavours, so the only way to find your favourite, is to sample many!
When it comes to quality ingredients and products, we don’t compromise. That’s also our approach to customer service. We love travelling to new places to find exciting new flavours, and we’re committed to going the extra mile for you.
We don’t just want you to be happy with what you buy from Oil & Vinegar; we want you to be delighted. That’s why we’ll never cut corners, and why we’re always here to answer your questions.
The world is awash with cheaper and nasty olive oil. You may even have been unlucky enough to have tasted it. Worse still, you may have a bottle in your kitchen right now. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
At Oil & Vinegar, we’re working towards realising our vision: a world in which flavour and quality reign supreme, and where everyone can get the superb products they deserve. We’re playing our part by oiling the wheels.
