More than a holiday destination
Greece is far more than a package holiday destination and has a food history to rival any mediterranean destination. Cretean people have among the longest life-expectancies in the world and their olive groves are among the best in Europe. The oils produced from them evoke the warm sunny days of the Cretan hillsides like nothing else.
Crete is recognised as the producer of the best olives and olive oils in Greece, with Sitia then noted as the area of Crete from which the best of the best oils can be found.
This is where Ziro Sitias is grown, produced and bottled before being shipped straight to Olivaceous who are now the sole UK distributor of this extraordinary product.
Ziro Sitias was awarded the Gold Medal for quality at the 2015 New York International Olive Oil Competition, beating over 700 olive oils from 25 countries. This was repeated in the Mediterranean International Olive Oil Competition where it took Gold in both 2015 and 2016.
The packaging of the product reflects the quality of the contents, a bottle to be admired as well as tasted.
