Fragrant Olive Oils

Our Olive Oils are proving to be a big hit in our stores and Fortnum & Mason, where they are stocked. Lyn and her sister went out to Spain earlier this year to see the olive harvest for themselves at the farm where our olives come from. They use nets to catch the olives so they don't get bruised.

The Marques de Valdueza family, one of the oldest aristocratic families in Spain, has been producing olive oils for more than 600 years. Their premium cold press extra virgin oil forms the base of Lyn’s blends, to which she has added gentle fragrant accents of citrus, herbs and spices.

There is so much history in the olive harvest, coupled with the beautiful light on the fields, which I'm sure adds something special to the final oils?
