Zeytin Oil: The Best Turkish Olive Oil I’ve Tasted So Far

By now if you’ve been following me in the past few months you’ll know I’ve been blessed to discover some of the best, most delicious and high quality olive oil – and it comes from Turkey! Zeytin olive oil is new to the American market, but it comes from the ancient land of Turkey in and around the Mugla (southern Aegean) region. Check out my interview with Zeytin Co-Founder Ahat Caskurlu below. It’s a really interesting look into how olives are chosen and processed for oil and why this Turkish olive oil is an award-winning brand! *UPDATE: giveaway is now expired. 

As part of our Eid ul Adha celebrations, Zeytin is giving away three 2-pack bundles (500 ml) of their olive oil to U.S. based audience members. One bottle is organic extra virgin olive oil (buttery and smooth) and the other is extra virgin olive oil (rich and fruity). Just watch our video above and leave a relevant comment about it below to be entered.
