Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil by E.thos of Crete comes to life by being cold-extracted from a limited selection of hand-picked olives, within hours of picking. Renowned olive oil expert and taster Odysseas Vlachavas highlights the following: "Due to the unique microclimate of the area, complex aromas such as freshly cut grass, olive, tomato, fig leaves, citrus blossoms and herbal notes give a balanced aromatic profile to nose and mouth."
