Buttery & Sweet {Mission + Arbequina}


100% Extra Virgin California Grown First Cold Pressed Sweet & Buttery

Size:250ml Bottle

A buttery-sweet delight!

This Olive Oil has a delicate underlying touch of sweetness and subtle notes of olive blossoms; it’s like tasting sunshine in a bottle. Superb as a heart-healthy butter replacement – try using it with a touch of sea salt for buttery-flavored popcorn – without the butter! 

What makes it so special? Sciabica’s olives are carefully harvested at different points of ripeness for superb "dialed-in" flavors. The riper the fruit, the sweeter the oil.  Fully ripe 'late harvest' olives result in delicate, sweet flavors without the bitterness or pungency of the ‘early’ harvest olives.

What varieties are used? Well, typically this product is 100% Mission Variety, but in short crop years (like this one) we will also use sweet Arbequina Olives.  This year, our Buttery & Sweet is a combination of Mission and Arbequina. Rest assured, it's just as buttery, sweet, and delicious as always.

Why are the Sciabica's the only one with such sweet EVOO? Mission variety olives are the only variety native to California, and only Mission olives have fully adapted to the California climate (many trees are well over 100 years old) allowing the olives to remain on the tree for several months after most producers have completed their harvest – becoming ever riper and sweeter.  Very few olive oil millers harvest Mission olives – it's a time-consuming and expensive process – however, the Sciabica Family has quite literally built the company around these native California beauties.

I especially love this olive oil with my homemade hummus!

Very impressed!

Just received my three olive oils and sticky balsamic, shipped to me in Vermont. I am so impressed with the beautiful and secure (no breakage, recyclable) packaging, and the prompt and reasonably priced shipping. Thank you so much!

Rich flavorful versatile !

This oil is rich & flavorful yet subtle. A notable absence of the green grassy peppery profile usually found in fresh EVOO, makes this a very versatile ingredient in all sorts of foods.
It adds the fullness of the fatty element normally gotten from butter or cheese, yet it is the healthy good for you fat!
It is a good food to nourish & support good health.
We even love a few drops in our coffee along w our barista oat creamer.. Rich & heart healthy !
