Limited Edition Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
The Governor Limited Edition Extra Virgin Olive Oil
A rare extra virgin olive oil with character, from Corfu island. Produced drop by drop with painstaking care, this first batch of limited edition, early-harvest fresh olive juice is full of concentrated goodness.
Three generations of Dafnis family members tend the aged ‘Lianolia’ variety olive trees in the family grove, none of which are under 100 years old. Many of our trees have been flourishing for over 500 years on the fertile slopes leading down and into the Adriatic Sea. Careful harvesting in October produces a low yield per tree of exceptionally high quality olives. Same-day cold pressing using the gentlest methods treats nature’s generosity with respect.
In return, it rewards us with a superb, unfiltered olive oil with the aroma of freshly-harvested and pressed olives, emerald green colour, rich texture and unique peppery taste. All are indications of its unusually high polyphenol content, which is what gives olive oil its healthy benefits. Add a new and finer taste dimension to salads or drizzle over warm food just before serving.
For over 100 years, the Dafnis Family, produces olive oil on the island of Corfu. carefully tending the centenarian “lianolia” variety. The olive oil is processed with low temperatures at the family’s mill based in the historical village of Aghios Mathaios, using the gentlest methods.
Inspired by a strong character, the first governor of independent Greece, Count Ioannis Capodistrias (1776 - 1831)
The youngest generation of the family, Spyros & George created their own Oleoculture and tradition by starting a revolution on the island’s olive oil production practices. This is how The Governor was born, the first single variety from ancient “lianolia” of Corfu.
I bought this for my elderly mum's birthday, she says it's pretty good.
I bought this for my autistic daughter. She is normally fussy when it comes to olive oil but so far, she is not fighting it whenever we give it to her first thing in the morning. I tried tasting it too and found that its taste nicer than the previous olive oil we gave her. Satisfied customer here.
