Nestled in the fertile Mejerda Valley of North Central Tunisia, the Mahjoub family produces one of the finest olive oils available in the world market today. Handpicked in December and January, just as they are turning from green to black, the olives are crushed in the family's ancient gear press. Decantation of the resulting oil from the vegetable water is done by hand, in a process known as "a la feuille". This unfiltered oil is emerald in color with aromas of freshly picked vegetables. Soft and clean on the palate with a lingering, prickly finish.
