HOW SHOULD I STORE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL?

We recommend finding a dark, cool, dry place to store your olive oil. We bottle McEvoy Extra Virgin Olive Oil in dark green glass or an opaque box to protect it from light and to ensure consistent quality. While the refrigerator might seem like a wise option, the moisture is not good for your oil. We also recommend using your oil quickly, preferably within four to six weeks after you open the bottle. Unlike wine, olive oil does not get better with age and contact with a large amount of air in a half-filled bottle will reduce the positive flavors and speed up oxidation.
