First Day of Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Created using the juice extracted on the very first day of harvest just as the olives hit perfect ripeness, this limited-edition emerald green Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Picualia is unrivalled in its purity.
Each year, the label changes paying tribute to a new aspect of the production process, with this release acting as an homage to the owls who fly down from the Sierra Morena to hunt birds and insect among the olive groves. One of the freshest EVOOs we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting, you almost want to pour it into a wine glass and sip it. Drizzle it over dishes as a finishing touch worthy of a top chef.
When you think of olive oil, the mind often wanders to the gnarled groves of Italy and Greece. But when it comes to this golden nectar, Spain creates three times as much as those two combined. And 70% of that production comes from Jaén in Andalusia – east of Córdoba and north of Granada – making it the world’s most important olive region. Here Harvey Nichols discovered a group of olive oil artisans who are revolutionising the game.
Picualia’s name is taken from their favourite olive cultivar, Picual, which is prized for its high oil and antioxidant content. The oil from this variety also has a very high smoke point, making it great for cooking. Picualia is a multi-award-winning cooperative whose sustainable olive oils pick up prizes for fun, and their environmentally friendly facility was crowned the Best Oil Mill by the Spanish Association of Olive Municipalities. Loved by many of Spain’s top chefs, Picualia is now amassing a loyal following over here.
