Kito Yuzu Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Regular price $19.95

Description

The Kito district of Tokushima Prefecture is known as the birthplace of yuzu trees in Japan, so it’s only fitting that Ogon no Mura Co., Ltd’s Yuzu Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from fresh yuzu picked in the region. It’s why the brand’s name also translates to “a village shining with the gold of ripened yuzu fruit.” Locally grown without chemicals or pesticides and certified with a Geographical Indication, the bright Asian citrus fruit is pressed for oil within 24 hours after harvesting to capture the freshest flavor. This oil is then paired with mild, smooth Taggiasca Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sourced from Liguria, Italy, for a flavorful and bright final product that expertly balances sour and sweet notes. With an aroma that falls between a mandarin orange and a Meyer lemon, it leaves behind a hint of fruitiness and pleasant richness on anything it’s drizzled over. Use to dip bread or for finishing crudo, ceviche, soups, noodles, salads and more.
