Atlas Dessert Olive Oil 500ml
Award winning certified organic olive oil from the Atlas mountains. Gold medal winners at the London Great Taste Awards and the Los Angelos International Olive Oil Competition.
The Atlas farms look to best agriculture practices and have adopted techniques from around the globe to ensure that everything from preparation, maintenance, to harvest reflects land stewardship practices. Israeli drip irrigation systems are used to parcel out the water from the Atlas Mountains snowmelt. To further protect this precious source they have built Morocco’s first covered water basin as a means of avoiding evaporation from the sun combined with a German pumping technology. Atlas has also imported tons of volcanic rock from Latin America to mix into the soil, which acts as a sponge to retain the water.
One of the Aqallal’s premium extra virgin olive oils of the French cultivar Picholine du Languedoc, Les Terroirs de Marrakech, from the Marrakech Estate produces such a unique oil reflecting the special conditions of soil, sun and the trees from which they're grown. Desert Miracle is produced on the El-Borouj Olive Estate. Of the three estates, this is at the lowest elevation of 320 meters, and also the most arid. In 2009 Desert Miracle won a gold medal at the Los Angeles’s International Olive Oil Competition. In 2009, the oil received the 3rd place award in the International Olive Council Mario Solinas Quality Awards in the green fruitiness category. In both 2009 and 2010, the oil received the gold medal at London’s Great Taste Awards.
