Chiavalon Ex Albis | Croatian Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Ex Albis

On a trip to Croatia, we remarked about the olive oil everywhere we ate. Ex Albis puts me right back there. And it’s not just my Croatia bias. Dinner guests have noticed it and asked about it. It will always be on my shelf.
I’ve had several contacts with Drusk beyond my orders. Your responses have always been personable, thorough and helpful. You remembered my query about preordering and notified me when that was available. Thank you. I’ll keep coming back.

Top notch in every way

I have purchased this olive oil once in the past. The quality was so great that I was sad when I ran out. I recently ordered 2 more of the large bottles and have nothing but good things to say. The ordering process was easy and I got notifications every step of the way. The shipping was right on time (which is a wonder considering everything happening in the world right now). I wrote a gift note for my husband to find when he opened the package and I was so touched to see the message was actually handwritten and the first thing we saw. It really made it fun, special, and memorable. I will be trying to keep a steady supply of this oil on hand at all times and plan to continue to purchase through this company. You're all awesome! Thank you
