Cold-pressed organic olive oil - 500ml

One Man and His Donkey..... Under the snow-capped mountain of Gran Sasso d’Italia, sits Zio Tom’s ancient olive groves. Tended to year-round by Tom and his donkey, his Abruzzo farm produces a beautiful single-estate cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. Now, for the first time, it is available in the U.K. through our website....

The year’s hard work culminates with the October harvest, an explosion of autumn activity after the hot Italian summer. Tom’s family gathers from far and wide to help him with the harvesting and pressing, before the oil is shipped to us in Gloucestershire for bottling. It’s a family affair from start to finish.

“One Man and His Donkey” is a fruity, spicy, peppery oil with beautifully low acidity. (The acidity on this year’s oil is less than 0.1, the finest grade.)

For the travel hungry, you can also stay in Zio Tom’s yurt amongst the olive groves. More details here https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/12294325
