5 Olive Oil
If you’re picky about olive oil, you know that all olive oils aren’t created equal (and that that would be really hard to say out loud). So you might be willing to go to the extra trouble of acquiring the organic extra virgin olive oil known simply as 5.
5 comes from Greece and is offered by the aptly named luxury retailer Ultra Lavish. It’s said to be spicy and beautiful to look at, with a high quality that makes it better for dips and sauces than your average grocery store olive oil. The packaging is better, too – a handsome black glass bottle with the very simple 5 logo emblazoned on its face.
As I’m sure you’ve already guessed, a bottle of 5 olive oil is going to cost you a little more than a bottle of comparable (but, it could be argued, not really comparable at all) olive oil you can get at a grocery store. But if you’ve got $50 to spend on a top-notch olive oil, you can do so here.
