How we test

Our taste test

Each oil that passes both the chemical and sensory tests to be classified as extra virgin is included in a show judging-style tasting. 

Four trained tasters from the sensory panel taste the oils "blind" and award points for aroma (olfactory sensations), flavour/palate (gustatory sensations) and overall impression. Each oil receives a score out of 100, and is graded as follows: 

  • Gold (Excellent oil) = 86-100 points
  • Silver (Very Good oil) = 76-85 points
  • Bronze (Good oil) = 65-75 points
  • No Medal = 50-64 points 

The show judging score accounts for 100% of the overall CHOICE Expert Rating.

How we test olive oil provides details of the chemical and sensory tests conducted by our lab.
