MARIO SOLINAS Award – 3rd place at the world most prestigious olive oil Competition held in Madrid by the IOOC
Atlas Olive Oils won the third prize of MARIO SOLINAS (organized by the IOOC, International Olive Oil Council) for the quality of its exceptional oils. This makes our oil the 3rd best olive oil in the world for the year 2009 (category green fruitiness).
Our oils have been selected amongst 92 olive oils coming from the best groves and mills of Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Chile and Argentina.
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!
