Elisir di Trabia is an extra-virgin olive oil produced on the green hills of Trabia, a small town in Sicily. The name is inspired by the well-known opera “L’elisir d’amore” (The elixir of Love) by Gaetano Donizetti.
This olive oil is not a love potion, but you will fall in love with it’s fragrance and superfine taste. The label is simple with heavy lettering resembling Italian Futurism. The geometric pattern with triangles and circles represents the olives on the tree, between the leaves. The packaging was artisanally made with care and love: starting from the choice of the small 25 cl glass bottles, to the paper for the label (Favini Crush 120gr/m², a unique earth friendly paper made using process residues from organic products including olives).
Elisir di Trabia isn’t sold anywhere, it was made as a unique gift for friends and relatives, to satiate their appetite with a touch of love.
«Obbligato, ah sì obbligato! Son felice son rinato!
Elisire di tal bontà, benedetto chi ti fa!»
«Prediletti dalle stelle, io vi lascio un gran tesoro.
Tutto è in lui: salute e belle, allegria, fortuna ed oro.
Rinverdite, rifiorite, impinguate ed arricchite:
dell’amico Dulcamara ei vi faccia ricordar»
