Help, Oil isn't Pouring Out!
All EXAU bottles have anti-tamper closures (tops) which are required in the EU. If oil isn’t exiting then it’s ‘stuck’. Here’s how to get olive oil to exit:
- Remove the twist-off cap.
- Angle the bottle at 45 degrees over a plate or pan as if to pour.
- Hit the bottom of the olive oil gently and then harder (like a Heinz ketchup bottle).
- If oil still does not exit place the cap back on (be sure to tighten) and gently flip the bottle upside down then right side up.
- Proceed to pour and repeat steps if necessary.

How to Pronounce EXAU
Ex – ow. Like ‘ow’ that hurt and ‘ex’ as in ‘ex’-boyfriend.
What Does EXAU Mean?
It stands for Ex Albis Ulivis Olive Oil, which is long and dramatic so we shortened it to EXAU.
In ancient Rome, Ex Albis Ulivis was the oil reserved for nobility. Harvest would begin while the olives were still green, creating a high-profile EVOO. We go to great lengths to ensure our olive oil is of the highest quality so we thought this name was a good fit.
Who Make EXAU Olive Oil?
We produce our own olive oil! Our family has been producing oil for almost 100 years. Cofounder, Giuseppe, is a 3rd generation olive oil producer. Skyler and Giuseppe both work harvest each fall. As we continue to grow we will partner with local farms to continue producing our oils. Read more about us here.
Why is Your Olive Oil Spicy?
You’re tasting a full blast of antioxidants, polyphenols to be exact. That’s what it’s supposed to taste like. If olive oil is too light or flat there’s a very high chance that it’s rancid, which is no fun. Always check the harvest and bottle date of an EVOO.
Do Your Oils Have Nuts in Them?
No, our oils do not have any nuts in them. Please review the ingredients list on the back of the product.
When we refer to walnut, almond, etc. we're talking about the organoleptic (sensory) characteristics of the oil. This is similar to tasting notes of cherry or apple when drinking wine.
