This high phenol Velagosht is the first of its kind in North America. An extremely robust evoo with sweet floral notes, unripe green almond and baking spice, Velagosht or “The red olives of Berat” is an Albanian indigenous olive variety first found in the village Velagosht in the outskirts of Berat, a 2400-year-old UNESCO world heritage city known for its olives. We’ve worked very hard alongside our partner farm, Malasi Olive Oil who processed this oil to our exacting high standard methods. Lingering pepper and balanced bitterness.
