Kabbadates Extra Virgin Olive has always in our opinion been first class. This January 2020 harvest repeats previous seasons' strikingly high standards. This Single Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Greek Island of Corfu has a deliciously concentrated flavour with a hint of fruit and a pleasant peppery afternote. Such is its freshness you will taste the handpicked olives it was pressed from, and enjoy an aroma of fresh cut grass.
How is it best used?
We have enjoyed all the Kabbadates Extra Virgin Olive Oils we have stocked since 2008, 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 velvety smooth texture. A medium to strong single estate oil such as this, is excellent for dressing strong flavoured salads with our more robust of vinegars. Try it with either our Damson Vinegar, 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!
