Why is fresh extra virgin olive oil so important? Unlike wine, extra virgin olive does not get better with age. Extra virgin olive oil is at its best up to 12 months after harvest. Both taste and health benefits start to deterioate after this period. The cold climate oils tend to have a longer shelf life and hold their flavour due to the high levels of polyphenols.

Polyphenols are the natural antioxidants that contribute to a peppery somewhat bitter taste.  Olive oils containing high levels of polyphenols have been shown to have a host of beneficial effects:

- healing sunburn
- lowering cholestral
- lowering blood pressure
- lowering risk of coronary disease
- lowering risk of cancer
- provides a wide range of anti inflammatory benefits that can positively impact illnesses such as:
- diabetes
- hypertension
- arthritis
- asthma

There is nothing more rewarding than providing our customers with the gift of fresh olive oil. As you can see from the list of benefits above our oils offer not just an awesome addition to your favourite dishes but also a host of health benefits that can make a great difference to your quality of life.

It is well documented that fresh cold climate olive oils have higher polyphenol levels, consequently Mount William Extra Virgin Olive Oils are second to none.
