We simply love this oil for its balanced flavor, varied uses, and gorgeous tin. We have many more complex oils, but we keep coming back to Alziaris as our old standby. A first cold-pressing of the tiny Nicoise olive, this extra virgin oil is fruity and fresh. Also available in 1/2 liter tins.

About Nicolas Alziari:
To be honest, we were first drawn to the eye-popping tin. Since then, we've learned the substantial history behind his product, and we've fallen in love with the simple perfection in its flavors. This oil is made using the Cailletier or Ni├žoise olive. The mill is the oldest in Nice, dating back to 1868. The flavors are mildly fruity, with some hints of artichoke.


The Alziari mill was built in 1868 on a former mill's ruins. When it was first constructed, it was in the middle of the country and since then, the city of Nice has grown up around it.

Alziari produces their olive oil using a traditional method called "Genoese" where the olives are ground for two to three hours, at which point the stone pond is filled with cold water and the oil that comes up to the surface is immediately taken out to be settled. The pulp is put into "scurtins" (baskets made out of coconut fiber) and squeezed to release the remaining oil. Made using the native "cailletier" variety of olive, the resulting oils are smooth in character with a clean, ripe olive flavor.
