TASTE - ACIDITY
The early-harvest olive oil THALLON combines all the taste properties of the variety Hondrolia Halkidikis, namely a rich fruity flavor with aromatic notes of grass, greens, pepper, tomato and balances bitter with spicy (FRUIT 5.0Mf, SPICY 4.5Mb and BITTER 4.5Mp). It is recommended to be consumed raw in the morning or as an accompaniment to salads, boiled or roasted vegetables and grilled meat.
THALLON has a particularly low acidity below 0.3 (<0.3) and thus is classified in the premium extra virgin olive oil category.
HARVESTING – OLIVE OIL PRODUCTION
The production of Thallon starts with the cultivation of our olive groves, which is based on organic standards. Harvesting begins in mid-September, when the olives are still unripe (green). They are collected by hand in perforated crates and then, within 24 hours, they are transported to a cold-press ecological oil mill for olive oil production.
Dimitris and Andreas Tsikouris were born and raised in Ormylia, Halkidiki, an area where olive cultivation has been a tradition since ancient times.
Love and respect for the blessed olive tree have been ingrained in them since they were young children.
They experienced firsthand the olive cultivation, olive harvesting, olive oil production and learned to appreciate the valuable for our health olive oil.
Childhood memories were transformed over time into experience, which, combined with their vision to produce their own olive oil, created THALLON, a natural phenol-rich product with particularly low acidity, derived from unripe olives, by cold extraction and with the most modern and certified mechanical methods for olive oil production.
