Virgin Olive Oil

High Quality >0.3% Acidity

Castillo de Piñar Virgin Olive Oil is lighter and more buttery with a fruitiness emanating from our perfectly balanced blend of Arbequina and Picual olives. Our Arbequina olives yield a distinctively sweeter, fruitier flavor than Picual, resulting in a marriage of characteristics which make it a perfect substitute for butter.  This olive oil is gentle on the palate and has a high content of monounsaturated fats and natural antioxidants.

Aroma

Fresh and soft, having a sweet scent of grass and apple with floral undertones.

Flavor

Medium-bodied, having grassy notes reminiscent of fresh herbs, influenced by the distinctive flavor of our Picual olives' bold nature and subtle use of almonds, with a hint of pepper and a more buttery finish.

High Smoke Point & Reusable

A high smoking point of 410'F / 210'C makes it ideal for frying, which allows a chef to obtain the desired texture without overpowering natural flavor. Virgin olive oil may be used as a substitute for butter, in baking and to make ice cream.  it adds healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants to foods.

Picual & Arbequina Olives - Complimentary Flavors

We blend our Arbequina and Picual Olives to create a uniquely savory, yet fruity Olive Oil which enhances all baking and frying recipes.

Picual Olive Oil is known for its floral aroma, distinctive flavor, high Oleic Acid Content, and high Stability Rate. Picual olives add a sweet and peppery finish to the taste. Arbequina Olives are smaller, sweeter green olives which add a mild, fruity flavor to the taste.

Our Arbequina-Picual Virgin Olive Oil is delicate-tasting with a fruity aroma perfect for baking, particularly when substituting olive oil for butter, margarine and for other oils which are high in saturated fats and Polyunsaturated fats.

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.

Castillo de Piñar Virgin Olive Oil is also available in Bag-In-Box (BIB) packaging, which is ideal for restaurant kitchens and many other uses.
