Organic Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Hand Painted Ceramic Jug- 250ml

In the heel of the Italian boot, on the Adriatic Sea west of Greece, is an area crowned with olives. Apulia (Puglia) produces up to half of all the olive oil in Italy; sometimes 15% of worldwide production. Centuries ago, olive oil was processed in a way unique to Puglia, in underground mills carved out of the limestone landscape. Oil is still pressed between grindstones, but above ground now.

On one of the highest hills in Puglia, near the octagonal fortress of Castel del Monte, a group of olive growers banded together and created a cooperative almost fifty years ago. Since then they have been producing full-bodied extra virgin olive oil, obtained by traditional pressing of the Coratina olives native to Puglia.

Note: this is a handmade ceramic jug and a minor leak is possible. It should not be considered a defect as it is part of a unique and artisanal product. The jug will be shipped with extra care to avoid any possible damage.
