This is the Jan 2015 harvest of single estate extra virgin olive oil from the Kabbadades Estate in Corfu. It is a first class concentrated oil, with a wonderfully fresh taste of olives and an exciting peppery twist in the tail.
How is it best used?
We have enjoyed all the Kabbadates oils, with each harvest bringing new and delicious tastes and aromas to our senses. This olive oil, like their other harvests, is quite literally drinkable and has a velvelty smooth texture. This strong single estate oil is excellent for dressing strong flavoured salads with our more robust of vinegars. Try it with our Tayberry Vinegar, Elderflower Vinegar or if you are feeling like a real treat, our 25 year old Traditional Balsamic Vinegar. Using it for Bruschetta is a must, as are using it to dress rocket and cress salads.
How is this made?
The Samoilys family have farmed the Kabbadades estate for 300 years and are famed for having introduced the Koroneika olive to Corfu 50 years ago, which was later to become the olive of choice by the local producers on this beautiful Greek Island. Our introduction to the oil was similar to many of our introductions to new products, a combination of luck and chance via a family friend. Without their kind help this wonderful oil would still be stuck in Corfu!
