We Are The Bridge
between you and the world's best olive oil producers
Here at Olive Oil Lovers we aim to do away with the confusion not only by offering a comprehensive selection of some of the best oils in the world, but also to provide you with the critical information necessary to help find the right oil for you.
We’re not just an online store, but a platform where the olive oil novice and connoisseur alike can expand their knowledge and their palate.
We understand that no two palates are alike and our ever-expanding line of olive oil is specially chosen to offer something for everyone. Whether it be a grassy, peppery Koroneiki from Crete; a softer, fruity Arbequina from Andalusia; or a powerfully pungent Moraiolo from Tuscany, we have the perfect olive oil just for you.
It is a proven fact that in just eight hours of close exposure to strong fluorescent lights, a bottle of olive oil packed in a clear glass bottle will be totally destroyed having lost its color, flavors and aromas. While oil packed in a dark glass bottle offers considerably better protection, it too becomes vulnerable when exposed to strong light and can be completely destroyed in less than a week, which makes purchasing olive oil in a supermarket a less than desirable prospect.
Beyond that, the vast majority of the oils sold in the USA have inadequate or even misleading labels. The consumer is given little to no information as to where the oil was actually produced or from what variety of olives it was made, but most importantly, WHEN the oil was harvested.
Generally speaking, the highest quality olive oils are extra virgin which make for our entire portfolio of oils. With that said, the best olive oil is the one you like the best. Which is why we offer a variety of premium, extra virgin olive oils from top producers around the world. We hand-pick all of our oils to make sure that we only feature the best Greek, Italian, Spanish, Californian, French, South African and Chilean extra virgin olive oils. No matter which one you choose, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Olive oil is a natural product that does lose its flavors and aromas over time. However, when properly stored unopened in a cool, dark place, olive oil can maintain its freshness for 2 years or even more depending on the variety of olive. Oil varieties with a higher polyphenol count, such as Picual, Coratina and Koroneiki, will maintain its flavors and aromas for a longer period of time than those with a lower polyphenol count such as Arbequina or Royal.
At Olive Oil Lovers, we understand the critical factors in storing olive oil to maintain its optimal freshness. All of our oils are stored in a well-maintained, dark, temperature controlled facility and will have maintained much of their fruity aromas and flavors even from a previous harvest.
When an oil is properly stored unopened under optimal conditions it will last for quite some time. Heat and light are the two biggest enemies of a good olive oil. When exposed to these factors over a period of time, such as when an oil sits on a supermarket shelf for too long, an oil loses its fruity qualities becoming void of flavor and will taste flat or even rancid, especially if it was a lower quality oil to begin with.
