Storage and shelf life
Store olive oil in a cool, dry, tinted airtight glass container or nonreactive metal container, away from the sunlight and heat.
Olive oil, when properly stored, will retain its flavor and aroma for 12-18 months from the packaging date. After that, remains edible but after a point will become rancid and lose any nutritional value and antioxidants and definitely will add a weird smell to your food.
So, your olive oil went rancid. Now what? Whatever you do, don’t pour it—or any cooking oil, for that matter—down the drain. This can clog your pipes and city sewer mains, and eventually pollute waterways. It also can’t be composted. The best practice is to transfer the spoiled olive oil to a nonrecyclable container (like a cardboard milk carton or takeout container) and throw it in the trash.

Other interesting information
In the Greek tradition, when a child is born, an olive tree will be planted. The olive tree and the child will grow together and when the child will become 6 years old, the olive tree will give its first fruits. It will grow with the family, survive through decades, and will still be there for all the coming generations to always remind us the continuity and the evolution of life. Goddess Athena bestowed two sacred gifts to the ancient city of Athens: the olive tree and her name.
Olive oil has long been considered sacred. The purity of olive oil, and the clear, soft light it casts, and its inoffensive odor when burned, has made it a natural choice for religious rituals since ancient times, and until today. Ancient Greeks anointed kings with olive oil. The lamps that illuminated ancient shrines burned olive oil. Olive twigs were twined into wreaths crowning winners in athletic games, victorious warriors returning home, and distinguished citizens of any stripe. Those ancient trees’ trunks split over the centuries, but still produce a harvest of fruit every year.
The expected life of an olive tree is 300 to 600 years, yet there are olive trees more than 1,000 years old. The history of the olive tree began around 7.000 years ago in the Mediterranean region and more precisely in the Eastern Mediterranean. It is speculated that it first appeared in Syria, as indicated by various depictions on vessels and by the multitude of myths of the people around the Mediterranean. It was Greece however, through Phoenician merchants, who brought it in the European Mediterranean area- Italy, France, Spain, Portugal- from where it spread to America and Australia.
