Mythocia Olympia Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mythocia Classic is an extra virgin olive oil made strictly from selected groves in the region of Ancient Olympia. Our location, the west part of the Peloponnese, has optimal growing conditions for Koroneiki olives - “the queen of olives” in Greece. From these fruits we produce a high quality, unforgettable olive oil experience. Especially smooth, mild and elegant in flavor, yet rich in slight bitterness and fruitiness - if you’ve never tried extra virgin from a high-quality facility, now is the time!
Mythocia Classic is versatile enough to be used for finishing AND cooking. Don’t believe what you’ve heard about cooking with extra virgin olive oil. You can indeed cook with it, you just have to use the real thing! The low quality, adulterated oils sold as “extra virgin” in supermarkets are what people refer to when they say, “don’t cook with extra virgin olive oil.”
Did you know?
Olives are a stone fruit much like cherries, peaches, plums, and apricots. What we all call “oil” is really more of a fresh fruit juice in this case. Real extra virgin olive oil is extracted with purely mechanical means, without heat or chemicals and no refinement whatsoever.
The enemies of extra virgin olive oil are light, heat, and oxygen. Store in a cool, dark place. Enjoy your olive “juice” as quickly as possible once it has been opened, and make sure to keep the lid on when not in use.
