How do you like your dry Martini - shaken or stirred?
We source our giant succulent bright green olives from Puglia. They are grown just above Italy's 'stiletto heal' on the east coast mainly around the Ofanto Valley. Here, hot dry summers, cold winters, and dry and windy weather provide the perfect conditions for the cultivation of these amazingly luscious olives.
Our speciality is the Bella di Cerignola olive, better known simply as the Cerignola. It is a very large, bright green olive, mild in flavour, and with a rich juicy body. A perfect appetiser on its own, as an "amuse bouche" or antipasto ... or if you like your dry martini shaken or even stirred, a single Cerignola will grace the coolest of cocktails.
