Aegina's Premium Pistachio Butter without Sugar - 180g



This premium pistachio butter is made from 100% Aegina pistachios with no other ingredients. Pistachios from the Greek island of Aegina (EHyee-nah) are prized throughout Greece, and indeed the world, for their delicious flavor and crunchy texture.

Located in the Saronic Gulf near mainland Greece, Aegina has the perfect temperature, climate and soil for growing pistachios, and is recognized by the EU as a P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin). The variety of pistachio that grows on Aegina is Koilarati. A more rare variety that produces a smaller nut with a flavor and texture that is superior to others.

A result of unique weather patterns, Aegina is one of the driest locations in Greece. The pistachios are essentially dry-farmed on the chalky soils, imparting a concentrated flavor to the mature nut. They receive only two small doses of water twice in late summer, to increase the ratio of opened (i.e. ripened) nuts. Such sustainable watering practices are in stark contrast to the heavily-irrigated, industrially farmed US pistachios, which require upwards of 40 inches of irrigation per crop. Our pistachios are grown and roasted on Aegina by Michalis Zois, whose family has farmed pistachios on Aegina for over 50 years, and who also operates a pistachio shop at the small port where the ferries dock.

This pistachio butter is a definite upgrade from your everyday peanut or almond butter. This version is unsweetened, so the rich flavor of the roasted pistachios shines through. It makes a great spread for toast, especially topped with a little Greek honey! It also makes a great topping for oatmeal or any of our delicious rusks, or with your favorite fruit.

Delicious pistachio butter

This pistachio butter is delicious and reminded me when I was a child growing in Greece eating fresh pistachios off the trees! It is a bit pricey for its size, but I'd say worth it.

Smooth and great taste.

Purchased this before and it was gritty and had skins. Recently appears they are preparing it differently resulting in a smooth, creamy and delicious product. Would highly recommend.
