CRAFT FOR PERFECTION

The journey of MYST® begins at the end of October, which is the ideal harvest period. Depending on the desired result in taste, olives may be harvested at any point during the ripening season. We prefer the early harvest when the fruit is still unripe and green.

Even though the production is lower at this stage, the olives impart a more fruity and pungent note to the olive juice, while, at the same time, contributing to our health by being higher in polyphenols and antioxidants.

HARVEST & COLD-PRESSED EXTRACTION

At harvest, the olives are collected with great care and stored in crates to ensure their perfect condition. The pressing of the olives is strictly finalized within 24 hours from harvesting, in order to be conserved and maintain all their beneficial substances intact. The olives are cold-pressed in a technologically sophisticated 2-phase mill, without ever exceeding 27°C, resulting in an olive juice with exceptional aromas and taste.

Before being bottled, the olive oil is stored in stainless steel tanks for a short period of time, which allows for a natural sedimentation under ideal conditions. Thus, the MYST® extra virgin olive oil is finally ready for you to enjoy.

The MYST® olive oil is 100% single varietal and exclusively grown on the foothills of Olympus.

GOLD AS A FOOD SUPPLEMENT

Ever since the times of Pharaohs in 2000 BC, gold has been considered as food able to win the favour of Gods. According to the ancient alchemist concepts, gold possesses legendary powers which contribute to a long and vital life. Olive oil is often referred to as “liquid gold.” So to emphasise the point, MYST added 24 karat edible golden flakes from the finest varieties.

MYST® GOLD olive oil with 24 karats, eating 24 karats is harmless. The gold is considered “biologically inert,” meaning it passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed. Eatable gold as a food supplement is listed as E-175.
