THE GOVERNOR


PREMIUM
UNFILTERED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL


LIMITED EDITION

A rare extra virgin olive oil with character, from Corfu island. Produced drop by drop with painstaking care, this first batch of limited edition, early-harvest fresh olive juice is full of concentrated goodness.

Three generations of Dafnis family members tend the aged ‘Lianolia’ variety olive trees in the family grove, none of which are under 100 years old. Many of our trees have been flourishing for over 500 years on the fertile slopes leading down and into the Adriatic Sea. Careful harvesting in October produces a low yield per tree of exceptionally high quality olives. Same-day cold pressing using the gentlest methods treats nature’s generosity with respect.

In return, it rewards us with a superb, unfiltered olive oil with the aroma of freshly-harvested and pressed olives, emerald green colour, rich texture and unique peppery taste. All are indications of its unusually high polyphenol content, which is what gives olive oil its healthy benefits. Add a new and finer taste dimension to salads or drizzle over warm food just before serving.
