To endure hundreds of years of olive production (yes, hundreds!), trees are grown in an environment that ensures the long term success and quality of the olive trees and the olives they produce.
Gold medals in Italy, New York, Japan, Switzerland, Croatia, Israel…need we go on? Chiavalon Extra Virgin Olive Oils have won the top award in the biggest competitions across the world.
Grown in the historic olive growing region of Istria in northwestern Croatia, Chiavalon olives are continually monitored throughout the year to ensure only the best olives make it into oil. The Chiavalons have spent over 23 years working to perfect the art of extra virgin olive oil, and they have their award cases to show for it.
Chiavalon brings fine-dining quality olive oil to your kitchen. Created to emulate the high quality olive oils that graced the tables of the ancient Romans, who were particularly fond of Istrian olive oil, every bottle of Chiavalon Ex Albis brings an authentic taste of the Mediterranean that cannot be beat.
What Our Customers Have to Say...
Drusk Trading is great source for olive oils. Quick turnaround and fast shipping. I found Chiavalon while searching for a Croatian oil. It’s smooth and mildly spicy. Excellent in salads, cooking and a great dipping oil.
When I visited Croatia a while back, I found remarkable olive oils everywhere I ate. One chef made his own. I came home and discovered Chiavalon and its prize-winning olive oils. I just opened a bottle of Romano, and it is just delicious.
I’ve contacted Drusk’s staff in the past, and they were friendly, generous and helpful. I’ll be a small but regular Drusk customer always.
Orders come fast and with no hiccups
