Atlas

Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This extra virgin olive oil comes from the foothills of the Atlas Mountains of the Marrakech region. ATLAS extra virgin olive oil has a complex aroma of ripe bananas, red apples and tomatoes.
It combines the balanced fruitiness of Moroccan Picholine variety with a hint of artichoke from the Dahbia autochtonous Moroccan variety, that smoothed by the Arbequina, gives an aromatic complexity typical of oils from our region.
