We are proud of our strong relationships with our suppliers, many of whom have been working with us for years. A longstanding relationship of ours, is with Dublin based, The Lilliput Trading Company. They are specialists in Mediterranean and Irish artisan foods. In our deli you’ll find their freshly made hummus & pesto, marinated olives and delicious pickles.
In the supermarket aisles you’ll also find their imported extra virgin olive oils. These high quality cold pressed oils hail from Spain and Greece. The Spanish extra virgin olive oil is made from 100% of the olive variety ‘Arbequina.’ It is described as light and fruity with notes of almond and melon. The Greek extra virgin olive oil is made from 100% of the ‘Koroneiki’ olive variety. It is characterised as tasting herbaceous and complex, with a long peppery finish.
If you are an advocate of the Mediterranean diet, then you won’t be a stranger to quality olive oil. The Mediterranean diet is renowned for its numerous health benefits including lower rates of heart disease, strokes and diabetes.
Even if you’re not up to speed on your olive varieties, you’ll be impressed with the taste and high quality of these oils. And did we mention the bottles? Their ornate design and decorative style make them almost too attractive to put away into the cupboard.
