Country of Origin: Greece
The area of Laconia, Peloponnese, in southern Greece, is an area that is devoted to olive growing and does what it does best: it brings you an extra virgin olive oil which will vest your culinary choices with true Greek spirit and taste.
Authentic Greek virgin olive oil has been known for its nutritional value since ancient times in Greece. Homer had called it "liquid gold" and Hippocrates had hailed it as "the great healer". It was the basic nutritional ingredient in the everyday diet of ancient Greeks. Not much has changed since then. Virgin olive oil still holds the main role in nutrition, a worthy spokesman for the Mediterranean Diet. Eli® olive oil is an award-winning, premium extra virgin olive from Sparta, Laconia. It combines its superb quality with tradition and a modern packaging design. The endeavour towards excellence in quality stamps each and every stage of the production process, from picking the right olive variety and selecting the area's most reputable producers, to presenting a premium end product in a fabulous packaging. eli® olive oil is of incomparable flavour and exceptional nutritional value. It is produced from olives of the "Koroneiki" variety, a purely Greek olive variety cultivated in Greece for hundreds of years. Peeping golden-green from their olive trees, the Koroneiki variety olives grace the vistas of the Laconian land and stamp the appearance and taste of the eli®olive oil they yield with all of the region's unique traits. eli® olive oil has a golden leaf-on-green colour and an intensely fruity body, with reigning notes of citrus and apple. Piquant and rich, it is freshly flavourful and is further endowed with particularly low acidity.
Prep & Usage
Pour on fresh, leafy salads, Greek salads, steamed vegetables, Cretan dakos rusks topped with chopped vine-ripened tomatoes and add it to your grilled meats, baked fish, and stovetop-cooked dishes at the end of their cooking time. Sheer pleasure!
