Purest Extra Virgin Olive Oil
From a time when Gods walked the earth.
With tomorrow’s taste in mind. Made from
hand-picked Manaki and Koroneiki olives.
Grown and crafted in Epidavros, Greece.
We only produce limited editions.
We’re a young team working with one of the oldest produce of this planet – olives. Our ancient olive grove in Epidavros is home to trees that are several hundred years old.
Here, the microclimate is perfect: From the soil to the median temperatures to the Mediterranean humidity, everything suits the growth of the Koroneiki and the – very picky – Manaki olives. Plus 3000 years ago, the Greeks enjoyed health treatments just around the corner, inspired by the God of medicine, Asclepius, who was born nearby.
Our lovely Olives
The MANAKI olive
It is known all around the world. This is due to its smooth and fresh, sometimes even sweet taste with peppery hints.
And because it will only grow – and only slowly at that – on the Greek Peloponnese peninsula with its perfect microclimate, making Manaki olives and olive oil an international luxury.
The KORONEIKI olive
The Koroneiki olive is rather tough, living through high temperatures as well as temperatures as low as –7 °C.
The Koroneiki’s taste is as flavorful as the Manaki’s but with sharper undertones of acidity and pepper. It is found throughout the Peloponnese as well as on Crete.
mako is the perfect blend between the velvety smooth Manaki and the edgy Koroneiki oils.
As healthy as can be.
For your body.
Olive oil is filled with a lot of good stuff, including linoleic acid (one of the two essential fatty acids the human body cannot produce itself) that helps with biosynthesis and building cell membranes, oleic acid (shielding our hearts by reducing bad cholesterol), and vitamins A, K and E plus polyphenols. The latter four can minimise the risk of cancer and are only found in native olive oil – any refining process destroys them.
For your soul.
As for our brains, a recent study from 2017 shows that olive oil can push our brain cells towards autophagy – or self-recycling. This is linked to reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s, keeping our memory intact for longer.
There’s a surplus of even more upsides to olive oil. We’ll make sure to let you in on them while we go along.
mako pleases your body and enlightens your soul.

The 2019 harvest of our mako olive oil
tastes very harmonic and juicy, with a nice crispness of freshly cut grass and mild notes of fruit. Hints of artichoke, oregano and apple, joined by wild berries and a subtle citrus touch.
