Pure Snowy Mountain Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In a Cold Climate we find it very hard to yield anywhere above 10% oil to weight ratio. Warmer climates tend to get 23-27% oil to weight ratio. What we have found is that pressing olives via cold press in a cold climate only allows 10% of the best to be extracted. 10% oil to weight ratio and cold climate quality has resulted in an Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
