This Editor-Loved Olive Oil Set Has Sold Out 3 Times, But It’s Finally Back in Stock
We've gushed about the top-quality olive oils and vinegars from Brightland a few times before, and with good reason. These carefully curated pantry masterpieces are well worth the hype, and everything from the brand’s garlic-flavored oil to its kitchen candle has earned praise from Food & Wine editors.
The collection of four 100-ml bottles includes Brightland’s two best-selling olive oils, Awake and Alive, and two “fruit forward” vinegars, Parasol and Rapture, all packaged together in a bright (no pun intended), colorful, and sweetly decorated box. Sure, the bottles and the packaging are great for gifting, but they’re also a better way to experience some of Brightland’s signature products if you’ve never tried them before. They’re sized especially well for small kitchens and overstuffed pantries, or for anyone living with too little counter space (or amongst too many kitchen tools).
To buy: The Mini Essentials (set of four), $70 at brightland.co
The set gives shoppers virtually everything they’d want from an olive oil and vinegar combo. The Awak oil has “herbaceous notes” that complement everything from soups and pastas to baked potatoes and roast chicken, while the Alive oil has a “buttery, smooth” taste meant for baking, dressing salads, and whisking into marinades. Then there are the two vinegars—a “bright, citrusy,” double-fermented champagne vinegar composed of chardonnay grapes and navel and Valencia oranges, plus a raw balsamic made from Zinfandel grapes and blackberries.
Aside from the high-quality ingredients, what sets Brightland apart is the fact that the olives used for its oil were harvested in November 2020, making these olive oils incredibly fresh.
If you’re lucky enough to snag one of these mini essential sets before they sell out yet again, may we suggest hitting that “add to cart” button more than once? This gourmet gift has a tendency to disappear, and you might find yourself wishing you picked up one for yourself, too. Trust us.
