Moor’s Head Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Want an olive oil that doubles as home decor? Moor’s Head extra virgin olive oil arrives in a distinctive, two-faced white bottle that looks lovely on the counter or table. The “moor’s head” (or Testa di Moro in Italian) is a symbol found across Sicily. It references a story about a pair of doomed lovers—hence the two faces.

Unlike store-bought oil, Moor’s Head oil is processed within eight hours of harvest. It offers a bold, fresh flavor that pairs well with Italian fare thanks to a sweet yet spicy profile. There’s also a black version to complement darker kitchen colors.
