Italian Organic Extra virgin olive oil

In case you ever wondered where our oils come from, well…there is a long connection between the UK and Calabria. Sometimes we get asked if our oils are made in the UK….and tongue-in-cheek we reply: Oh yes, the oils are from Maida Vale! Actually, the oils are some of the best the Italy produces and Maida is a town in the area. Did you know that Maida Vale was the theatre of a battle between the British and French force in 1806 and Maida Vale is named after that? There you go. Actually, that is not the only connection: the word sybarite originates from the Calabrian town of Sibari. Legend goes that when the ancient Greeks arrived in Calabria and visited Sibari, they were so impressed by the quality of the produce that the town became a synonym of those who know how to eat, drink and live it up a bit…..then a term was coined!

GREAT WINE THANKS 🙂

FANTASTICO

GREAT WINE THANKS CIAO

Great Fizzy red

Fab red wine, great taste and so easy to drink. Nice cold or room temp.
Got it before Xmas as they delivered bit to me by express. Thanks for that great service. Much appreciated.

This was bought as a stocking filler for my eldest son - he loves this sauce!
It has not yet been eaten, but I give the service the highest rating - it arrived promptly & I was emailed reassuringly to confirm it was on its way.
I know that my son has told me that this sauce is absolutely superb and different to the usual pasta sauce flavours.

Great product

Love this craft cider. Light easy-going and nice flavour.
Reasonable price
