A little about our olive oil
Qadisha Valley Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is an exceptional olive oil of the highest quality.
Grown under the endless Lebanese sun, on land farmed by Monks since the 8th Century, this organic olive oil is made from a blend of Tyr and Ayrouni olives. Each olive is hand selected from an early harvest to produce an oil, considered to be fruity and peppery, by the Monks of the Deir Hamatoura Monastery.
The olive groves themselves are situated at a height of over 700m above sea level in an area of unspoilt natural beauty, well away from major towns and any pollution.
The Qadisha Valley in Northern Lebanon is a UNESCO world heritage site having sheltered Christian monastic communities since teh earliest years of Christianity.
Sam Low (from England) and Guy Khoury (from Lebanon) together decided to work to produce a fine organic Olive Oil from their love of Lebanon: the food, the people, the culture.
Produced in the Qadisha Valley, Lebanon, the Olives are hand harvested and then pressed using state of the art modern methods to extract the finest oil. The oil is then bottled and imported to the UK for culinary usage.
If you'd like to sample the oil yourself then here's a link to Sams website in North Devon.
