Olive Oils

View Our Policies


The enemies of oils are light, time and oxygen. That’s why we store our products in dark bottles, sealed to prevent oxidation, in temperature-controlled storage. Our oils are sourced from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, alternating throughout the year to ensure we always have the freshest, best quality oil.

Oil's enemies can greatly affect its shelf-life and quality. An unfiltered late harvest oil stored in clear glass with a loose cap near a stove can be begin to go rancid in as little as 3 to 4 months. But high-quality, properly stored and sealed oil with high polyphenol (a naturally-occurring antioxidant that is plentiful in carefully-crushed olives) can taste fresh for well over a year.

We also carry small batch premium nut and seed oils, carefully stored to ensure their freshness.
