It's been about 3 weeks since the first orders were delivered and we are starting to get some good feedback. So far, we've gotten great reviews on the website, the bottle, the packaging, and the olive oil itself. One piece of feedback has been about pouring from the bottle. When the bottle is used without a pourer, there can be a tendency for the oil to drip down the sides. This usually isn't much of an issue, but on our bottle with the linen paper label, the oil mars the appearance.
So, we've thought through this and we are going to offer a built-in pour top on our bottles going forward. This will be the default option starting today. If you already have your own pourer, you can still elect to get the nice wooden cap that has been the standard so far. Either option will be available as a gift with a wax-dipped seal.
Note: If you ordered a bottle before the pour tops became available and would like a pour top for your bottle, please let us know.
Please let us know if you have any additional feedback that would make the Spartan Oil package or overall consumer experience better. As a new company, we really appreciate and value the opinions and feedback of our first consumers.
