Twelve Letter Company
Twelve Letter Company offers small-batch artisanal olive oil products straight from Greece, grown on a family olive grove in Messenia and the region around Kalamata. This area has the perfect climate for growing flavorful olives. Twelve Letter Company olives are grown in an ancestral grove on an ancient, gently sloping hillside in the village of Koukounara. Any place else, is second best. Olives are processed the old fashioned way, by climbing the trees and shaking and raking the tree branches to make the olives fall, and then gathering the olives to be pressed on the day they are picked – pure, unfiltered and without blending with other oils and fillers. At first taste you’ll recognize what you’ve been missing in the store-bought extra virgin olive oils you’ve become accustomed to. Twelve Letter Company olive oil has a more unique taste because it is unadulterated – meaning it’s not filtered or blended with other oils or fillers – making our olive oil more heart-healthy and pure. And because it is pure, our olive oil offers maximal anti-inflammatory properties and is an excellent source of antioxidants.The quality of their olives, the care with which they are selected, prepared and pressed, and the simplicity of our bottling process makes our olive oil magical in every way. It’s the perfect choice for dipping, gourmet recipes and as a special gift. Available online or for purchase at local farmers markets. Check website for info.
