What is the shelf life of Olive Oil and how should Olive Oil be stored?

2 years unopened, 3 months after opening. Store in a cool, dry place.

In reality, this answer largely depends on storage conditions. Optimal storage is a proper wine cellar. For more extreme examples, refrigeration promotes the presence of water vapor and higher temperatures promote greater frequency of reactions between fatty acids and oxygen. Both extreme cold and hot temperatures make olive oil age quicker.

Note: if your only options are very cold or very hot, our philosophy is too cold is better than too warm.

Our Olive Oil is packaged with a Nitrogen Buffer that helps block oxygen from interacting with the oil.  Once the bottle is opened for use, the Nitrogen escapes and the oil will remain in contact with oxygen in perpetuity.
