3-generations of excellent olive oil

Blackbird olive oil encloses a 3-generation experience and adeptness, know-how that is renewed continuously and of course love but also respect for the Greek island of Lesvos and its goods. This passionate devotion leads to the making of precious, honest, pure, impeccable olive oil. And carrying those features, it proudly sits on your everyday table.

Delicate, fine-balanced, aromatic, golden, and at the same time unsurpassable healthy. Blackbird olive oil is as superior as the land itself that bore it. A pure Lesvian olive oil of low acidity, but of high nutritional value and taste; it truly is an experience like no other…

Blackbird is produced in the region of Alyfanda (or Alifanda), which resides in the north-eastern part of Mytilene capital. It derives from the best practices applicable at all stages of its production. Starting from cultivation and harvesting and proceeding to storage, immediate oiling and lastly bottling, the whole process honors but also protects the olive fruit, its juices, aromas, lifespan and all its unique nutritional and antioxidant properties.

Behind the “Blackbird” label is a family-owned, vertically integrated olive oil production company; another significant aspect, that allows the owners to supervise all processes personally. The olive mill, with a tradition that dates back in 1900, belonged to the grandfather, Yiannis. The next generations inherited it and renewed it many times since, from a technological perspective. Today, the fully modernized, automated, centrifugal, third-generation olive mill being led by the grandson Yiannis combines the best varieties of olive fruit and their distinct aromas with all the required, strict specifications in three balanced products of excellence; Organic olive oil, Extra Virgin olive oil, Virgin olive oil.
