The olives used to make this mild, buttery Spanish extra-virgin oil are pressed with fresh basil leaves, producing a fruity flavor and herbal aroma. It has just the right amount of peppery basil essence—not too strong but with enough presence to make it distinctive. O-Med harvests their arbequina olives, a small, mild and fruity variety, in mid-November from their groves in southern Spain. The olives are combined with fresh basil, which accentuates the grassy notes in the oil. Ideal as a finishing and dipping oil, in sauces and dressings, or use it to add a savory hint to ice cream and desserts. The beautiful painted bottle is an added bonus that can find a home on your kitchen counter.
