“Absolutely loved the oil. Such incredible quality. A thumbs up from us!”
Morocco Gold is a single-estate, extra virgin olive oil grown and pressed in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and brought to the UK market by a British-Moroccan business partnership.
The oil has a subtle yet distinctive green fruitiness, says the brand, which comes from the picholine olive. It has a fresh and vibrant flavour with a hint of herbs and a clean light finish. The bottle has gold embossing to stand out on shelf and incorporates a tamperproof cap and pourer insert.
Nestling in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, the Beni-Mellal region, about 200km from Marrakesh, benefits from a unique microclimate ideal for olive cultivation.
Morocco Gold olives are grown using only natural, traditional methods and are hand-picked early in the season when the fruit is young, then cold-pressed within 24 hours of harvest. The oil is pressed by a local cooperative which actively supports schemes to create employment for women in agriculture which helps reduce family poverty.
