Olive oil is loved around the world for its organoleptic properties and as a source of good health and nutrition. To make it more visually appealing to consumers, many producers present this precious liquid in modern containers that enhance their popularity.
Here are four excellent olive oils that come in artistic bottles.
Château d’Estoublon is an exceptional extra virgin olive oil made from Grossane olives, cultivated on a farm where the passion for a job well done means perfection. The brand’s emblem is an elegant bottle that resembles a French perfume container. Originally designed to hold cognac, the bottle—a true object of worship— is square, has a shiny silver lid and a label with a black background beneath the white logo.
This is a high-quality extra virgin olive oil, an exquisite elixir with deep aromas and exceptional nutritional properties. For the design of its label—on a black glass bottle—the manufacturers commissioned a painter specialized in Byzantine iconography to remain faithful to the codes of the symbolic language they had chosen.
Señoríos de Relleu
This extra virgin oil is a real treat, perhaps because it is made from indigenous olive varieties–blanqueta, Real Changlot, alfafara or genovesa—which provide an excellent harmony. To better preserve such exquisite nectar, Manors Relleu comes packaged in beautiful and original aluminum bottles that protect it from direct light. The different containers are subtly decorated in naif style by artist Paula Alenda, who depicts the Mediterranean Sea, the company’s awards and, of course, the olives from where the excellent juice is extracted. This product received the gold medal at the New York International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards of 2013.
Orci L’Antico Frantoio Muraglia
The extra virgin olive oils from the Orci L’Antico Frantoio Muraglia series use the coratina and peranzana varieties, olives grown in the fertile volcanic soils of the Puglia region of southern Italy. Their characteristic containers are highly appreciated as the oils come in beautiful and colorful hand painted terracotta urns, following the traditional pugliesa vascolare art, the way the ancient Greeks used to decorate their pottery. Orci means “pot” in Italian, which is the name given to this type of rounded clay bottle. The organoleptic properties of this oil, together with an unmistakable design make the Frantoio Muraglia Orci L’Antico a masterpiece of flavor and beauty. ■
