The olive groves are found on farms near the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park. And the varieties of olives from which this multivarietal olive oil is produced are Picual, Hojiblanca, Arbequina and Picuda.
The olive is harvested in a ripe state, which makes this olive oil ideal for cooking and frying as it is not so intense in its fruity flavor. Unlike premium olive oils, whose olives are harvested without being sufficiently ripe and therefore generally have an intense fruitiness.
Likewise, these mountain olive groves are the oldest in the area, mostly centenary and cultivated at altitude. The latter is decisive in the excellent quality of olive oil.
The olive harvest is mechanical and manual, as it could not be otherwise in a mountain olive grove. Once the olive reaches the mill, it is ground and then the oil is extracted. This process is carried out by means of centrifugation in two phases, a process with higher performance than others in which no spillage occurs.
Finally, it is stored in a heated cellar in totally inert aluminum tanks to avoid the loss of its properties.
The Hispasur brand, in its Gold and Silver products, has won many awards in the many and most important international competitions. As an example, in 2018 they obtained more than 30 international awards. And in the last three campaigns a total of more than 70 awards.
The oil mill is located in Priego de Córdoba, in the surroundings of the Cordoba Subbética mountain range and has a great family olive tradition dating from the mid-19th century.
The Hispasur Aceites olive grove is located in the heart of the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park, forming part of the centenary olive trees that surround La Tiñosa, the highest peak in the province of Córdoba. Harvesting is done manually as mechanization in this mountainous terrain is impractical.
In conclusion, Hispasur Classic olive oil is undoubtedly a wise decision to cook every day or enjoy an extra virgin raw.
