Why is the 1,500ml BiB so expensive?
Sevillano variety olive oil is deliciously unique. However, the trees were not planted in California for oil, but rather for canning. The very large size makes them desirable for stuffing with almonds or protruding from a martini. Conversely, the large size also means they contain very little olive oil, having a high percentage of olive meat and water.
For decades we have been able to sort out the very largest Sevillano fruit and send it to a local canner. Unfortunately, due to a shrinking supply of Sevillano olives, this is no longer viable. Instead, for the past two years, we have pressed ALL of the olives, including the extremely large "Queen Olives". This has resulted in a similar extreme increase in cost. Please know that we are working very hard to minimize cost increases for our wonderful customers – so our current plan includes reducing the discount for the largest size of Sevillano, while keeping the bottle prices as low as possible.
