Made from the essential oils of the best Sicilian lemons and our trusted Coratina olives, we are big fans of our Al Limone olive oil.
If you twist and squeeze fresh lemon skin, you will see oil spraying into the air. That essential oil is full of flavour and perfume. And that’s want we want to capture.
So to make sure none of it escapes, we squeeze the lemon peel cold with our olives to get that fresh citrus flavour.

The cold pressing technique separates the oil from the juice and the flesh of the fruit and since oil is hydrophobic (chemistry lingo for “afraid of water”), it cannot mix with the olive juices. However, it can mix with the olive oil. Which is exactly what we are looking for.
Al Limone adds a zesty kick to salads and is fab with fresh fish. The oil can bind too, making it great for creamy sauces.
