King Juan Carlos of Spain tastes the olive oil LES TERROIRS DE MARRAKECH on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the International Olive Oil Council in Madrid
On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the International Olive Oil Council (IOOC), his Majesty the King Juan Carlos of Spain has tasted the moroccan extra virgin olive oil LES TERROIRS DE MARRAKECH produced by ATLAS OLIVE OILS. The King of Spain has enjoyed the fruitiness and the aromas of this exceptional vintage oil that has won in June 2009 the 3rd Mario Solinas Quality Award. The ROYAL GALA ceremony was held on November 19th 2009 in Madrid in the presence of the Spanish Government members.
Proud of my Italian oils I had a little reticence in trying a Moroccan oil. With my big surprise I found it really delicious. I used it raw, but I’ve to admit, it’s great for frying too. It has very hi smoke point that makes my ‘fritto misto’ lovely golden and crunchy. I highly recommend it!

I bought this oil as I was attracted by its elegant and unusual bottle. Such a precious container had to contain a very special product and I was right! The bottle on your table is a pleasure for your eyes and when you pour it, pervasive perfumes invites your dining companions to taste it and they feel privileged to savor such a rare nectar. My guests are special and I love being a perfect gracious hostess.
I discovered this great oil when looking for a good oil for my olive oil ice cream. It resulted to be the best one. Now I use it as a topping to add savory complexity to many of my sweet treats. Delicious!
