Spyros' Artesan Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 5L (newly pressed)
Courtesy of Thomas,Â Spyros'Â Extra Virgin Olive OilÂ is a superior quality olive oil obtained directly from olives, hand-picked and cold-pressed to create an exceptional and sustainable product.Â ItÂ has a unique rich flavour and is perfect forÂ drizzling over dishes such as salads, pasta and soups.Â We love its smooth, herbaceous yet elegant taste with hints of wild asparagus.Â Good for your table and your health!Â
Origin - Spyros'Â oliveÂ groves are close to a place called AgiosÂ Konstanntionos in Greece, which is also not far from a pine forest where our Greek beekeeper Thomas keeps some of his hives. It's a beautiful place where there is no pollution or contamination, with sheep and goat herds roaming. You could be back in ancient Greece if it wasn't for the sound of ships on the north Euboean gulf.
About the producerÂ -Â Spyros is a 75-year-old gentleman who has a heritage that stretches back hundreds of years - giving him a wealth of experience and knowledge about how to produce the best olive oil imaginable. HisÂ olive groves have beenÂ cultivated for many many generations. Before him his father, andÂ right backÂ to the 16th century. Some of his trees are 500 years old and none are younger than 300 years. Spyros said that these trees have only remained productiveÂ because they have been pruned and cared for consistently since they were first planted. That is the secret to the longevity of his trees - and one of the main reasons why his olive oil is so high quality.Â
Storage:Â Keep it in a dark, cool cupboard away from the stove or other heat-producing appliances.Â Olive oil is ultimately perishable but has a very long life. If stored properly, this extra virginÂ olive oil canÂ last up to 2 years.

With all the hype that Tim Walker has been sending out heralding the coming of Spyros' extra ****** olive oil, the day finally arrived a week or two ago. I ordered a couple of tins and I am now a believer, one who by taste can say by personal experience that this oil is truly wonderful. As an initial test, I gently poured the oil onto a large spoon and let it slip slowly across my palate before swallowing slowly. Yes, in the same way one would take a sip of wine after opening or decanting. The taste and texture of this unprocessed oil is extraordinarily full of flavour and ever-so-smooth, not delivering even a hint of harshness at the back of the throat which is often the case with olive oils not as good as this. As the proof of my enjoying this product, I have just ordered two more 500 ml tins before the limited supply runs dry. Hopefully, Tim will be able to continue to do business with Spyros. Thank you, Tim, for your diligence in searching for the best specialist items to offer your loyal customers.
Spyros' extra ****** olive oil is excellent. Fantastic taste, lovely on salads, and for dipping. Can taste the Greek sunshine
