I scream, you scream, we all scream for … Brightland. Well, sure, it doesn’t rhyme, but it’s true! Anyone, whether olive oil connoisseur or condiment layman, who’s tasted the celebrated brand’s fine blends will tell you: There truly is nothing like it. It’s no surprise at all that these olive masters have grown to pantry-staple fame. With a variety of oils to choose from for any application or mood (feeling spicy? Try ARDOR. How about luxurious? Then we recommend CASTELVETRANO), anyone would be smitten! But, Brightland doesn’t stop there. They’ve got a bevy of unique vinegars (including this editor-favorite edition that keeps selling out), a duo of wild, natural honey, and gift sets for every single person in your life.

Basically, we stan Brightland. And — if you’re anything like us — then you do, too. So, please take a seat, since we’ve got one seriously exciting announcement to make. The flavor masters over at the fan-favorite brand have heard our requests and they’ve once again delivered. Starting Sep. 20 at 12 p.m. EST, you can head over to their site and order a bottle of AURORA, Brightland’s newest, rosemary-infused olive oil. The bottle of the classic combo is bound to grace your table with a nuanced, herbaceous flair that’s versatile enough to top any dish.

AURORA, the glorious new bottle of EVOO, is pressed from early-harvest Arbosana olives, which are known for having a sweet, fruity taste with a nutty base flavor. The olives are grown on small family farms in California’s Central Coast, and these little fruits are the best of the best. The oil is then infused with woodsy, aromatic rosemary, resulting in a combination that’s velvety, peppery, and slightly botanical in taste.

And, as if the unparalleled flavor profile wasn’t enough, there’s a little something extra-special about this debut. Its stunning, colorful label was created by NYC-based artist Shawna X, who was inspired by the essential’s “gentle kick and pop of flavor.” She used the tasting notes to develop a blurred, dynamic graphic that’s worthy of a frame. In other words, don’t worry too much about where you’ll store another bottle in the pantry, this one is perfectly fine kept out and on display.

There’s no doubt this newest addition to Brightland’s olive oil arsenal is a perfect match for the cozy flavors of fall. Drizzle it on vibrant butternut squash soup, use it to dress an endive and hazelnut salad, or — if you’re looking for a total flavor explosion — whip up an unexpected glaze for olive oil cake.

No matter how you plan to use the scrumptious stuff, you can rest assured it’ll be up to the task. Just like all Brightland bottles, AURORA is free of fillers, preservatives, and artificial flavors. Plus, the special EVOO will last longer than most others thanks to the bottle’s UV-resistant coating which protects the inner contents from spoiling. You’ll be able to enjoy the golden goods for months to come. (If you don’t finish the bottle first, that is!)
