Emerald Oils are based in Cashel in the heart of County Tipperary. We are the only freshly cold pressed rapeseed oil in Munster, carefully managing the entire process from sowing the seed to harvesting, pressing and bottling. Every single stage in creating Emerald Oils is completed on our third generation farm ie. “Soil to Oil”.
Together with being the only producers in Munster and blessed with some of the most fertile and productive soil in Ireland has contributed to a very unique tasting oil which seduces the eye with its golden colour of liquid sunshine, teasing the palate with its pure light flavour.
In 2016 Emerald Oils were awarded 2 gold stars in great taste awards with judges describing our oil with a wonderful deep golden colour, bright and clear, toasted nutty aromas with full flavour and a warming finish and silky texture, quiet complex and sweet length. Judges thought that this was an excellent example of how a rapeseed oil should taste.

“A wonderful, deep golden colour, bright and clear. Really strong toasted nutty aromas on the nose. Full flavoured, intense almost hazelnut taste in the mouth, with a warming finish. A silky texture.”
The judges thought this was an excellent example of how a rapeseed oil should taste.
“A good bright colour, a seedy nose and on the palate, good buttery mousse, long and developing flavour. Quite complex. Sweet length.”
