Picual is considered the very best of Spain’s olive varieties and the tastiest in the world. It originates from Jaén. However, the picual olives from La Aceitera de la Abuela thrive on the climate and soil of the picturesque Comarca de las Vegas in the region of Madrid.
The picual olive oil from La Aceitera de la Abuela is different from any other as it not only has that sharp, tangy bitterness that people like, they have also produced a sweet oil from an olive that rarely merits that description. Its subtle yet persistent and surprising fruity notes in the nose and mouth show how well the soil of La Aceitera de la Abuela suits its olives. Its taste puts the picual oil far above what people imagine oils of this type should be like.
Its unique, surprising taste is marvellous not only when used cold. It is also ideal for cooking. Like the cornicabra variety, it has a high content of polyphenols and the antioxidant vitamin E, and it can stand high temperatures without breaking down.
A one-of-a-kind oil with a mystery and exoticism that completes the range of “premium mono-varietal” olive oils from La Aceitera de la Abuela. To delight the palate and the heart.
