Byzantium Irene

By Darvari̇ Gida Tarim

We dedicated our most precious harvest to Empress Irina, leader of the Byzantine Empire through the role of Basil and recognized for restoring the cult of icons after the First Iconoclastic Period, in 787 AD. This distinctive extra virgin olive oil is made with olives grown in the villages of Mecidiye, Geyikli and Çanakkale, giving a bold taste, low acidity and unique aromas.
