The best olive oil in Ireland?

Colletta Olivieri Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fruity, peppery, herby…and oh so fresh! The latest batch of Colletta Olivieri Extra Virgin Olive Oil has just arrived and it’s irresistible. It is imported to Ireland by Lino Olivieri, whose family grow the olives down in Puglia, Southern Italy and also run the much-recommended Agriturismo Colletta Antonetta. Lino is the partner of my friend The Connoisseur so I’ve been hearing about his home, those olive trees and that oil for several years now.

Last year I got the chance to get my hands on my first five-litre tin of the olive oil and I got so used to using it for cooking, dressing salads and on bread that it ran out much too quickly. The major problem with using such a fantastic product is that you get spoilt and it’s very difficult to go back to using just any old olive oil. If you’re looking for a Christmas present for someone who loves their food – or just for yourself – then contact Lino (details on the website here) or head to the Dublin Food Co Op this Saturday to grab a few tins. The best olive oil in Ireland? Taste and see…
