Lebanon's Olive Oil: A Gift from the Ages

Lebanon's Olive Oil: A Gift from the Ages

A proud, important part of Lebanon’s history and culinary tradition is producing the finest quality olive oil from rich and abundant groves of indigenous olive trees. Lebanon's authentic olive oil tradition dates to Phoenician cultivations in the 3rd millennium BC. Today, the artisanal, but sophisticated Lebanese olive oil industry specializes in extracting pure quality extra virgin olive oils from ancient local olive varieties.

Though a small country, Lebanon's diverse topography, microclimates, and olive varieties, produce uniquely flavored olive oils with distinct aromas and tastes catering to the most distinguished palate.
