Superior quality gourmet award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil of exceptional nutritional value in the Cretan and Mediterranean Diet. The distinctive regional features of the ἔ.thoς of Crete olive groves, as highlighted by a balance of complex aromas, result in a full experience of flavor with mild bitterness and medium lingering spiciness.

ἔ.thoς [é.tʰos (noun)]: a Greek word meaning a custom or a habit, reflecting our everlasting aspiration to connect with the past, revive the bonds with our tradition and honor the legacy inherited from our ancestors

 

From the cultivation of the family olive trees to the olive oil extraction and preservation, the ἔ.thoς of Crete Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the fruit of the ancient Cretan heritage and the personal labors of Markos Kelly, olive oil producer and ἔ.thoς of Crete founder. Six generations of family tradition and additional refinement via modern sustainable farming methods and technology have perfected the care of the family-owned olive groves at the foothills of the breathtaking Asterousia mountains in the Messara valley.

An award-winning extra virgin olive oil with very low acidity is produced thanks to early harvest at the beginning of October, the region's unique microclimate, the fresh air that benefits each stage of production, and the dedicated attention to detail during collection, cold pressing extraction (<27oC), tasting, and preservation.

Highly complex aromas of freshly cut grass, olive, tomato and fig leaves, citrus flowers, and hints of herb give a balanced profile of fruitiness, mild bitterness, and medium lingering spiciness to the nose and mouth, resulting in a uniquely pleasurable olive oil tasting experience. With its superior quality and exceptional nutritional value, ἔ.thoς of Crete - Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a staple of the Mediterranean Diet, ideally enjoyed in a Cretan or Greek Salad. It is also perfectly paired with hot and cold soups, as well as fish and meat fillets.

Comments:

‘Produced from privately owned olive groves at the semi-mountainous Monofatsi region of the Messara valley, a unique micro-climate. At the nose and mouth, one can feel its highly complex aromas and travel to the E.thos of Crete olive groves. Freshly cut grass, olive leaves, flowers from citrus, tomato stem, lemon-thyme, green banana stem, with medium bitterness and medium, long-lasting spiciness. Overall a very well-balanced EVOO.’ - Odysseas Vlachavas, olive oil expert

‘Perfect tasting balance, with a variety of aromas from herbs, summer savory, tea, citrus (bergamot orange). Congratulations! Many congratulations!’ - Judges’ comment at Specialist Awards 2021 (Platinum Award)
