How long is the shelf life of your oil?

It depends how you treat it! If it is kept in a dark, cool place will last a lot longer than the date printed on the bottle. Oil degrades over time with exposure to air and sunlight, and can gradually loose flavour. Refer to the back of your bottle for the best before date. Our recommendation is two years from the date of harvest.
