100% Picual Olives

Castillo de Piñar Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced exclusively with Picual olives. Picual olives enhance prepared foods both in appearance and by adding a sweet and peppery finish to the taste. The best OEVOO and EVOO come from Picual Olives. These olives take their name from the pointed shape (peak) of the olive. Originally from Jaén and surrounding areas such as Granada and Cordoba, Picual Olives are the most highly sought after variety and produce oil known for its floral aroma, distinctive flavor, high Oleic Acid Content, and high Stability Rate.

Unique Violet Glass Bottle

Preserving the Purity - Naturally

Castillo de Piñar is bottled in a unique and exclusive violet glass bottle which preserves the organoleptic qualities of our oil. Castillo de Pinar farmers are dedicated to caring for our trees in order to maintain the natural purity, outstanding taste and health benefits coming from the most highly favored olive varieties in the world.

In the spirit of our farmers quest for perfection, we searched the world to find the perfect bottling system needed to preserve the quality of our products. Many olive oil producers fill dark colored bottles in an effort to reduce harmful light penetration. However, dark bottles simply cannot prevent the most harmful ultra-violet light from impacting their oils. Our exclusive violet glass bottles prevent the entry of ultra-violet light, naturally protecting the oils' properties.

Bag-In-Box Packaging

Sturdy & Convenient BIB's Preserve Olive Oil's Quality

Castillo de Piñar Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also available in Bag-In-Box (BIB) packaging, which is ideal for restaurant kitchens and many other uses. The reduced weight and volume of this efficient and economic packaging allows it to be easily and inexpensively stored and transported, while the versatile size and practical design make it extremely easy to access in a busy kitchen.
