Holy Smoke Smoked Olive Oi
Holy Smoke, LLC, a new start-up business in Charleston, employs a unique process to smoke and manufacture its extra virgin cold-smoked olive oil. It’s Simple perfection! The smoked olive oil is rich, cold pressed extra virgin California olive oil that is cold-smoked with North Carolina hickory and South Carolina pecans. Holy Smoke’s smoked olive oil is 100% natural and produced right here in Charleston, South Carolina.
The flavor starts off like rich, sweet butter, then a savory smoke slowly permeates your mouth and nose, and it finally finishes with a slight pepper on the back of the throat. Rich, smokey and peppery. It’s like liquid bacon that’s good for you!
Oh yeah, and the smoked olive oil is for vegans, veterinarians, carnivores, and everyone else that loves great tasting olive oil.

The olive oil smoking process is not as simple as you might think. It’s definitely a science to the incorporate the incredible flavors and aromas into the olive oil. Holy Smoke’s process takes 9 hours of cold-smoking in their one-of-a-kind smoking machine to create the savory hickory flavor and subtle sweetness of pecans.
