Olive oil tasting glass
The four-brand pack of Jaen’s 2020-2021 early harvest extra virgin olive oil includes an official tasting glass regulated by the International Olive Oil Council (COI) with a perfect blue colour to make the most of the oil’s aromas and flavour.
This oil tasting glass has a blue tinge to avoid distinguishing the colour of the liquid (which ranges from yellow to a golden green), as the tones of the oil are not an important indicator of quality and can lead to confusion on the part of the taster.
In this way, the senses are focused solely on the aroma and taste.
