See what some of the judges said below….

Strakka Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

“Remarkably clear in fact with attractive limpidity.  Some gentle grassiness on the nose, which translates to the palate. The fruit is fresh, the bitterness is apt and the spike is gentle. This is a subtle, light oil in good balance.

Strakka Organic Black Kalamon Scarified Olives

“A beautiful olive, rich in flavour. A great concentration of olive character, well handled and with long developing fruit on the finish.”

“Really attractive shiny olives, good size, fantastic flesh to stone ratio. The judges really like the juicy, meaty texture and full olive taste without being overshadowed by saltiness. Long lasting, clean olive flavour. Star -worthy!”

“Lovely balance of flavours – acidity spot on and no discernible bitterness. Well made.”
