Taste and Aroma Experience the intense fruitiness coupled with a spicy flavor and a distinctively bitter aftertaste. Our olive oil boasts a fresh olive aroma and a bright, typically olive-green color.
Sustainable Production We produce Atsas Gold at our organic, natural farm. Here, we harvest green, unripe olives and cold press them while ensuring the temperature stays below 27 degrees Celsius. This careful process preserves the exceptional nutritional properties of our olive oil.
Innovative Bottle Design Our distinctive black bottle protects the olive oil from light and oxidation. This packaging is crucial in maintaining the quality and exceptional organoleptic ingredients of Atsas EVOO.
Health Benefits: More Than Just an Oil
A Tradition of Wellness Historically, olive oil forms a vital part of the Mediterranean diet. Consuming Atsas EVOO, rich in phenols, tocopherols, and phytosterols, correlates with increased life expectancy. Recent scientific studies highlight the presence of polyphenols like oleocanthal, which offer various health benefits, including reducing inflammation, regulating blood sugar levels, and potentially lowering the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Heart-Healthy Choice Atsas EVOO is predominantly composed of monounsaturated fatty acids. The American Heart Association notes that replacing saturated fats with monounsaturated fats, like those in olive oil, significantly reduces heart disease risk. Our EVOO is abundant in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that lower LDL (‘bad cholesterol’) and maintain a healthy cholesterol balance.

Beyond the Bottle: The Gourmet Story
Permaculture at the Heart At Atsas, we embrace permaculture in our certified organic cultivation methods. Our farm in Evrychou, Cyprus, is a haven of biodiversity. It’s home to olive trees and a natural habitat for supporting species that enhance biodiversity. Fresh herbs, pomegranate, azaroles, carob, and fig opuntia trees coexist with wild flora, sustaining bees and other insects. Birds, acting as natural pest controllers, find a welcoming environment here.
