The Olive Boffin was conceived from a love of the wonder fruit juice that is olive oil. Our team has been travelling to the continent of Europe for many years and have had the privilege of experiencing many of the delights of the Mediterranean diet and way of life. At the heart of this is the amazing extra virgin olive oil and we aim to bring you the highest quality olive oils.
Our mission is to provide our customers with access to some of the world's best olive oils from the top producers, and to provide information and items to help them enjoy EVOO to the full. Our expanding network of producers means more and more choice. Whether it be a spicy Tuscan Frantoio, a classic Andalusian Arbequina, or a Cretan Koroneiki we are here to help. You can rest assured, all of our products have been selected for their quality and character.
If you browse our site, you will see our range of oils, information about our producers and lots of information about extra virgin olive oil. If you need some advice, just ask!
We have put together some information about books on olive oil and the Mediterranean approach to food. We have also included information about the finer points of tasting and appreciating extra virgin olive oil and how to get the most from your purchases. If you are interested in more information on any of these things, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
If you are keen to learn more about the finer points of tasting EVOO or just want to try it out at home, we also supply attractive aids in the form of International Olive Council (IOC) standard tasting glasses. It's an amazing feeling when you discover the extra dimensions and character of an oil.
Our stock of oils is held in a dark, temperature controlled store. This helps to preserve their quality for as long as possible. We want you to have the best experience possible when you make a purchase of olive oil from our website.
We hope you enjoy your visit, and our oils!
