We were delighted to hold our first tasting event of Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil at the fantastic Bakers & Larners of Holt last Saturday.
Bakers & Larners has been in Holt since the mid-18th century. lt is not just a store, it is an institution, the Fortnum & Mason of Norfolk.
They recently completed a major refit of it’s amazing foodhall which is nationally recognised for its wonderful range and excellent quality of its food and drink. We are privileged to have Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil included in its range.
For health conscious, discerning food lovers across all cultures and culinary backgrounds, Morocco Gold is a natural, unfiltered, ultra-premium, polyphenol rich extra virgin olive oil. The exquisite taste and health benefits of Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil are guaranteed by our rigorous testing, provenance and authenticity, and strict adherence to single estate sourcing, with no blending or mixing.
We are always delighted to meet our customers and to tell them the story about Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil and how it arrived in the UK. We had a constant stream of customers from far and wide who tasted Morocco Gold and had some great conversations about our oil, the wonderful country of Morocco and its culture. Many had either visited the country or were planning to do so. We were delighted to give Bakers & Larners customers a flavour of Moroccco whilst sheltering from the Norfolk winds on the day.
Born from a love and passion for the outstanding beauty of Morocco’s countryside and rich cultural heritage, Morocco Gold was launched in 2018.
About Morocco Olive Oil
People are still often surprised to find that extra virgin olive oil comes from Morocco when in fact it is now the 4th largest producer of olive oil globally and has been producing excellent olive oils for centuries.
Our olive oil comes from olives grown in the unique micro-climate in the foothills of the magnificent Atlas Mountains, with mild winters and summers caressed by hot winds from the Sahara, This has provided the ideal growing conditions for Morocco Gold olives – for centuries. Pure and natural, Morocco Gold olives are the product of the soil, the sun and the rain only.
Morocco Gold olives are hand-harvested and cold-pressed within 24 hours, there is no mixing or blending with other oils to ensure genuine extra virgin quality.
Produced from Picholine Marocaine olives, this gives Morocco Gold its distinctive green fruitiness, with hints of almond, fresh turf and the peppery aftertaste of a high quality extra virgin olive oil, resulting in a vibrant, well balanced, clean light finish.
