This early harvest high phenol Velagosht is the first of its kind in North America. An extremely robust extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) with sweet floral notes, unripe green almond and baking spice tasting notes. Velagosht, or “The red olives of Berat”, is an Albanian indigenous olive variety first found in the vallage of Velagosht in the outskirts of Berat, a 2,400 year old UNESCO world heritage city well known for its olives. Our suppliers worked very hard alongside one of our partners farms, Malasi Olive Oil, who processed this oil to our supplier’s exacting methods. Lingering pepper and balanced bitterness.
