First, the packaging will catch your eye: a striking dark green ceramic bottle decorated with a golden mosaic pattern. Inspired by traditional Moroccan tilework, the art was designed to evoke the sun rising over the city of Fès in northeastern Morocco. Once you taste the delicate, buttery extra virgin olive oil, the bottle will be the second most impressive part of the experience.
The Noor Fès estate grows two varietals of ancient, native Picholine olives that are harvested by hand and cold pressed within four hours of harvesting. The aroma and flavor of the oil are pleasantly floral and fruity, and it has a lush, creamy texture. Add a generous drizzle to hummus, roasted vegetables, and grain salads.
Extra virgin olive oil
Buttery and silky flavors
Harvested in fall 2022, this oil is smooth and buttery. It tastes delicately fruity, like apples, with unique floral and herbaceous notes. There's a hint of bitterness and spice on the finish, but they fade quickly with the buttery flavor lingering.
