Olive Poem is available in 2 editions. The Silver (a drop of health) which is oriented towards nutrition and the Gold (a drop of art) which is oriented towards gastronomy.

The Silver is produced from Kalamon olives and contains extreme levels of polyphenols, having in the same time a really nice taste (but maybe somewhat unbalanced towards spiciness). For the crop year 2022-2023 only 520 silver bottles were produced and are all distributed exclusively from Kreta24.pl

The Gold is produced from Koroneiki and Myrtoelia olives. It is as well ultra high phenolic, but with a little less polyphenols than the silver. However it has a more balanced and elegant taste and a very complex bouquet of aromas. It is a perfect combination of a superfood and a delicacy.

The story behind Olive Poem

In the region of Lakonia in Peloponnese, Greece, olive cultivation has been a significant activity since ancient times. This is no coincidence, since the area has excellent soil and climatic conditions for olive trees. Over the centuries, some exquisite, unique olive varieties have evolved and adapted to these specific conditions.
Theodoros Koutsotheodoris chose to espect and emphasize this background when he started the creation of his ÒOlive PoemÓ. He revived the -abandoned for decades- olive grove of his late grandfather. But he resisted the trend of replacing ancient trees with new ones, treated with chemicals to get higher productivity. On the contrary he chose to follow a philosophy of the most natural and traditional agriculture. He preserved the olive trees of local Koroneiki, Myrtoelia and Kalamon varieties present in this olive grove for centuries and followed ancient practices to treat them. As a result, all his olive trees are born and raised in this specific soil, and are well adapted to it, having no need for chemicals to be nourished or protected from diseases. They are perfectly healthy even if they are treated with completely pure organic agriculture, but they don’t produce as much as the conventional olive trees.

While this terroir is one of the best in the world for olive trees, and the agriculture is the most pure, it is not adequate to produce one of the world’s best olive oils on its own. To accomplish this ambition, Theodoros turned to science and technology. Well educated in the field of olive oil production, he has integrated the latest innovations into his methodology. He runs his own small-scale olive oil production unit in order to have full control of the best, most up-to-date process. This ensures the best preservation of the valuable substances found in the olive fruits, as well as the formation of the taste and aromas of this unique olive oil. This is how the terroir’s potential is eleveted to yield a product of superior quality.

After production, the olive oil is immediately filtered and stored at precisely controlled temperature and at protective atmosphere, until bottling, when carefully cleaned glass bottles are filled and sealed under vacuum using non-refillable caps. Only this way, the high quality of this olive oil can reach your table without being degraded.

However, a poem inevitably faces evaluation by exacting critics.
Already, from its first steps into the outer world, our Olive Poem has been enthusiastically received by expert olive oil tasters, earning impressive distinctions at major international olive oil competitions.

Fianally, Olive Poem is not only a very delicious food apreciated by gastronomy experts, but in the same time is a unique superfood! All these careful procedures and hard work, from cultivation to bottle filling made possible to enclose in this nice bottle, extreme levels of polyphenols, vitamins and other, important for health, substances. This unique characteristic of Olive Poem to join the two worlds of taste and nutritional value is indeed phenomenal and very rare.
