These olive oil bottles range from modern to classically inspired, but they all share in their celebration of this liquid gold. There is a bit of a divide in the way olive oil is packaged -- purists will argue that olive oil should be preserved in a dark-tinted or opaque package to preserve its freshness, but some of the most striking designs show off the color of olive oil.

Although light can be damaging to these kinds of packages, its packaging is often more eye-catching on the shelves, since consumers like to see the products they are purchasing. Although the issue of opacity may pose a creative challenge, there are limitless possibilities in the way olive oil can be bottled. The optimal choices for packages include metal tins or glass bottles, which come in a variety of unusual shapes.
