This is a two pack of steel cans of olive oil. I like to buy oil in these cans--the light-proof container keeps the oil from going rancid a bit longer. The spout is clever--it's the typical pull-up spout on oil cans but it has a screw cap. The oil is from Greece--Crete, reputed to be where some of the best Greek oil is grown on 1,000-year old trees. It's single point-of-origin, unlike most grocery store oils, which are multiple origin oil, generally Tunisian, Italian and other oils. The problem is, Italians consume olive oil in larger quantities than they can produce, so a lot of cheaper exported oil is mixed with North African oil to make it available.
Worse yet, there is a lot of fraud in oils. I used to talk with a professor at U Mass-Lowell who was using HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) to discern if oils were being adulterated. He was finding that trendy oils, like rice bran oil, were often nothing like what was listed on the label. Fast forward a decade...
Wonderful tasting PDO extra virgin olive oil; it is very hard to find this kind of quality at a reasonable price. The simplest way to understand the PDO or DOP (in Italy) designation is that the product "is what it states it is", there are no phoney or low quality ingredients. The product arrived on time, was well packaged and the customer service was A+++. I will order again, and again and again..........
It is sad that so much of the olive oil in markets is spurious at best, and authentic growers and purveyors must rely upon certification--as does this wonderful oil from Crete. Many people who rely strictly on higher priced Italian oils don't realize that a large quantity actually comes from Greece. I have eight different oils from Spain, Italy, California, and Greece in my larder right now, and Ellora Farms olive oil is one that I will assuredly buy again. Note as well that it is a fragrant oil with a nice bite to it, which should come as a surprise to folks who may be used to bland supermarket fare.
