Arbequina is one of the most famous and popular varieties of olive. Characterised by coming originally from the north-east of the Peninsula, its small size and the fruity sweetness of its oil.
La Aceitera de la Abuela produces very special arbequina olives: It was one of the first organic olive farms in Spain with super-intensive or hedge-shaped pruning, and the first in the Madrid region. It is a benchmark for all similar farms nationwide.
The climate of this part of the Peninsula and the soils on the floodplains of the Jarama and Tajuña rivers give the olives from La Aceitera de la Abuela a special brand identity. A very intense, fruity taste, with hints of green banana, tomato and damp grass, or even apple, with a distinctive almond aroma. A soft but bold, affable and friendly taste.
Excellent with all types of cold or cooked dishes, giving them another flavour dimension. An unforgettable oil from a privileged setting, from young trees that symbolise the deep-rooted philosophy of innovation at La Aceitera de la Abuela. An absolute must in the kitchens of those who know how to enjoy liquid gold.
An excellent way to start out if you are not familiar with the taste of extra virgin olive oil.
