Organic Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sevilla. The arbequina variety is very fruity and smooth on the mouth; perfect for crudites, fish and desserts. La Espabilá is a premium oil from selected green olives picked on the first day of harvest, taken straight to the mill in crates to keep them in pristine condition, and milled at night so that their acidity is low. The oil is cold-pressed, without using any heat in the process, which produces a lower yield but of extremely high quality. Once this process has been completed, the oil is stored in stainless steel vats at the optimum temperature while it decants, and afterwards, it is bottled.
While the content is the primary focus for La Espabilá, the container is important too. They have chosen a look for the bottles that is unusual and unconventional in the world of olive oil. A bold, colourful logo captures the traditional world of olive oil (land, sun, Mediterranean) with a young, contemporary, and graphic edge.
La Espabilá is certified organic by the Andalucian Center of Organic Agriculture (CAAE).
Tasting notes: “Green fruit with a medium intensity. In the mouth, sweet at first, with light bitterness and a medium pungency which comes late but persists. Notes of fruit and lightly
herbaceous. Apple, banana and herbs, with almond and dried fruit finish.”
