The organic extra virgin olive oil is magnificently flavored with organic garlic and chili trhough a natural, long and artisanal maceration process. The handpicked and certified organic lemon is properly dried before its maceration, to avoid the proliferation of bacteria. The maceration process lasts 15-30 days, and once the process is finished, the EVOO is filtered, kept in stainless steel tanks, and bottled under request.
The extra virgin olive oil used as basis on this exclusive organic EVOO Collection, is made up of a blend of two olive varieties: the aromatic Alfafarenca and the sweet Arbequina. This extraordinary oil is produced by a family-run business on the East Coast of Spain, in Sierra de Benejama, in the province of Alicante, where olive oil, citric and wild spices are an intrinsic part of the landscape, culture, gastronomy and lifestyle of locals, who work on the cultivation of fruits, like olives among many others, promoting sustainable farming, with the commitment to safeguard the ecosystem, and to diffuse knowledge and innovation in organic farming.
The olive groves are on spectacular terraced mountain slopes on sandy-clay soils, at an altitude of 400 to 800 meters above sea-level. It´s a region of surprising climate conditions due to its proximity to the central area of the Mediterranean basin. This unique scenery also contributes the exclusivity of this flavored oil collection.
