Moulin de Daudet
These olives are some of the few products that we do not import directly. Originally imported by Justin de Blank and sold in his shop in Elizabeth Street, we sold them to our customers for many years. When Justin retired we approached the producers in Provence, the Arnaud family, and asked them if we could import them ourselves, directly. Amazingly, the answer was a firm “Non”. Here was a Frenchman who understood the principles of “exclusivity” and was happy to stand by them.
We do not specialize in olives—there are others who do that better than us—but we are happy to continue to sell these from the Provencal village of Fontvieille where they have been produced since just after the second world war.
