Organic Bergamot Infused Extra Virgin Olive OIl
Our new collection of organic infused extra virgin oils are made in Southern Italy following a traditional, entirely natural process. Created by pressing organic Calabrian bergamot fruit together with organic, single estate Ottobratica olives, this unique oil is beautifully balanced, tasty and healthy. It is very low in acidity (just 0.2%) and high in polyphenols (the anti-oxidants that are said to help prevent cancer, arteriosclerosis and slow down the ageing process).
Indigenous to the Calabria region, bergamots are a citrus fruit with a powerful aroma and fragrant juice. The essential oil obtained from the peel is energising and uplifting and used in many perfumes and supplements as well as in Earl Grey tea.
This organic infused oil is the perfect accompaniment to seafood, braised meats, beetroot salads, grilled vegetables and spicy cheeses. It also makes a great ingredient for fruit and chocolate based desserts.
