About The Malaxer

The Malaxer was born out of a love of the olive, the land where it grows and the farmers who harvest, mill and bottle its oil. Part, we hope, of the growing recognition of great extra virgin olive oil, we’re excited by growers and farmers making oils that are the purest expression of their olives. Technically correct, yes, but also with personality. Oils that make your dinner table better.

We try to write about olive oil in a serious but (hopefully) accessible way. We’ve tasted a lot of oils but are still learning about olive oil. If The Malaxer has an aim, it is simply to share this growing interest with others and to do so in a way that enhances its readers’ enjoyment of olive oil.

We try to meet as many olive oil farmers and producers as possible; one of the joys of olive oil is seeing the land and mills where it is made. In the process of doing so, we come across some amazing oils that have no outlet here in the UK. We therefore act occasionally as brokers for the wholesale of their oils and sell bottles through this site. This helps support the website and, more importantly, contributes to bringing more interesting oil to the UK.
