Origin and production
The arbequina olives for their production are harvested in the first days of the season. And they come from olive trees in the municipality of Carcabuey, Priego de Córdoba and other neighboring municipalities, in the surroundings of the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park.
The olive harvest is manual and mechanical. And once collected, not an hour passes since they arrive at the oil mill and are crushed. This process is followed by shaking and spinning to obtain the intense green juice. And finally it is filtered and stored in aluminum tanks for later packaging.
Almazaras de la Subbética has a long history in the world of olive oil. It was established in 2007 and is the result of the merger of two cooperatives that have more than 60 years of history in the sector.
This oil mill is in the municipality of Carcabuey, next to the Natural Park of the Sierras de la Subbética Cordobesa. In addition, its olive groves are located within this mountainous park and which gives so much character to its olive juice.
The mill, like its olive oils, is recognized on many occasions with awards for its good work and excellent work. As an example, we highlight the award for Best World Olive Oil Mill achieved in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. It was also awarded in July 2020, by the prestigious world ranking “World’s Best Olive Oils”.
