Greek olive oil specialist Nature Blessed has received a Great Taste Award for its extra virgin olive oil, the latest honour to be bestowed on the family-owned, Thessaloniki-based business.
Nature Blessed’s premium-quality olive oil has also won awards in New York (2015), Tokyo (2016), Athens (2016-2018), Israel (2015-2017) and London (2017), and this latest honour reflects the care and attention the company puts on selecting the best olives for its products.
Commenting on the company’s achievements, Great Taste Award judges were effusive in their praise of Nature’s Blessed’s products.
One judge described Nature’s Blessed as “a golden, unfiltered oil with a delightful aroma, herbaceous and also of ripe fruits. On the palate there is little fruit up front. The heat of the pepper hits early and hard - it's not too bitter, in fact the bitter part of the journey hardly gets a look-in, though it's present, oddly, on the finish.”
Another hailed the product’s “complex aroma and good rich colour. The flavour has a slight bitterness, but it's quite controlled, and delivers what one would expect.”
A third commented on the product boasting “very bold grassy nose, tomato stalks, verdant and with a clean mouthfeel - there is a little spike of pepper no bitterness, a good finishing oil”.
