Default Where to buy Mallorcan olive oil?

Can anyone help, I've bought a super olive oil pourer from Pollensa for a friend for Christmas but couldn't buy any Mallorcan olive oil to go with it as the bottles exceed the 100mls hand luggage limit.

Does anyone know where I could order some to be posted to the UK or any UK stockists?
(I looked on Es Vergers' website but its 19.99 plus shipping and they appear to only post to Germany.)

Almost all of the island's olive oil gets sold on the island.

There is the "Fet a Soller" site (and their oil is my second favourite oil from anywhere) but it's eye-wateringly expensive to ship overseas and I just get family to bring me bottles when they go home to Soller. Online-shop for gastronomic specialities from Sller and Majorca

Thanks for the link Harters, I am going to buy something soon

The shipping fee to the UK does reduce slightly to 18.50 Euros when you spend 30 euros:

Shipping and Fees / Mallorca Online-Shop by Fet a Sóller

I think with a few jars of Olives and some Olive oil I could almost spend 30 Euros, still a lot with the shipping for some olives but I like the Mallorcan 'herby tasting' olives

Just a thought but you could buy the oil a seat on an easJet flight for less than the shipping!!
Maybe it wouldnt get itself through passport control

I'd have thought that oil would just "slip" straight through passport control ???!!!

My husband like an Andalucian oil Nunez de prado which isnt cheap and not that easy to come by Only normally sold in better quality shops

If I see it for sale in Spain I bring it home in my normal luggage I take quite a deep plastic box that has clips on the sides wrap it well inside the box put a plastic bag around ( just in case ! ) and have never had a problem

Easier than trying to obtain on line !

because it can go in bulk(or not) by land which is much cheaper than airfreight
