Premium Unfiltered Extra virgin Olive Oil – The Governor

Be the first to review this product

Dafnis family olive oils are named in honour of the first governor of free Greece and founder of the modern Greek State.

A rare extra virgin olive oil with character, from Corfu island. Produced drop by drop with painstaking care, this first batch of limited edition, early-harvest fresh olive juice is full of concentrated goodness. In return, it rewards us with a superb, unfiltered olive oil with the aroma of freshly-harvested and pressed olives, emerald green colour, rich texture and unique peppery taste. All are indications of its unusually high polyphenol content, which is what gives olive oil its healthy benefits.


The oleocanthal and oleacein concentrations in “The Governor”™ are 7 times higher than the average of the samples and the highest value recorded among all commercially-available bottled oils since 2009. The total hydroxytyrosol derivatives are 61% higher than the stipulated European regulation. The daily consumption of 20g is known to protect the blood lipids from oxidative stress.

Description

Details

Three generations of Dafnis family members tend the aged ‘Lianolia’ variety olive trees in the family grove, none of which are under 100 years old. The Lianolia olive is native to Corfu and the Ionian Sea region. It is a demanding variety which, under the right conditions and care, produces an exceptional quality extra virgin olive oil, unusually high in beneficial polyphenols. Many of the trees have been flourishing for over 500 years on the fertile slopes leading down and into the Adriatic Sea. Careful harvesting in October produces a low yield per tree of exceptionally high quality olives. The Dafnis family have developed our own method of hand-harvesting, using a rod which gently vibrates for not more than 15 seconds, and does not “shock” the tree or cause damage or small wounds to the branches. The olives fall into nets, which are slightly raised so that when they fall, they are not bruised from impact with the ground.Same-day cold pressing using the gentlest methods treats nature’s generosity with respect.
It began as a vision and fervent desire of Dafnis family that after years of arduous endeavours and research is now coming into being. It combines in absolute harmony the unparalleled experience and respect towards tradition with the youthful passion, vigour and knowledge that make for a truly precious and at the same time rare olive oil. Olive oil, as the basis of Mediterranean cuisine and as a natural product itself is the healthiest oil and stands out due to its unsurpassed substances that are beneficial to the human body.
