Spain is the largest producer of Olive Oil in the whole world and our exportations have been increasing year by year. Our liquid gold, as Spanish called it, is produced in nearly every region in Spain but it is in the south of Spain where it has the main production. The region of Andalusia produces around 60% of Spain’s total output. In this part of the country, you can see olive trees covering the landscape if you travel by plane or by car through their roads. A breathtaking picture.
The AOVE Águra Olive Oil comes from a family harvesting the best olives and taking care of the entire process of collection and milling the olives. From the beginning, the Aguilar Segura family has focused on a quality product to elaborate their olive oil. That quality is the reason why they had received numerous awards from countries such as Germany, Italy or Israel.
How to elaborate a Premium Olive Oil?
The Mediterranean Sea area is one of the locations more fertile of the world. That’s one of the reasons why Olive Oil produced in this area is of the best quality and it has many benefits for your health. Today, we are talking about 10 reasons why you should choose it. Don’t miss it!
First of all, Olive Oil we consume in our everyday life should be one of the best quality, for that, we have to search for the label ‘Extra Virgin Olive Oil’.
AOVE Águra is a family-run company that was formed by my parents Jesús Aguilar and María Luisa and their five children, included me. All of us were raised in a large tradition of farmers, surrounded by nature. So my parents know what they are talking about in concerned of olive trees and plantations.
In 2012 we decided to start a new project, the AOVE Águra company to elaborate the most especial Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the ‘Aguilar Segura’. In this way, we could monitoring rigorously the whole process, from the olive tree to the packaging, going through the recollection and grinding process.
Do you know that not every Olive Oil is the same? Their scent and flavor largely depend on the variety of the olive that it is used for its elaboration.
Last week our team started the harvesting of olives. November is the most important month for us due to the birth of the new harvest of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Today we show you the key moments of the process:
You have had the same question more than once where you were doing a recipe because most of them simply call for Olive Oil. However, when you go to the grocery store you would see a shelf full with different options. From Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the regular one. But, are they really different? Which one should you choose? What is the difference between Olive Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
Do an Olive Oil tasting can be something fun and surprising. You could recognize more scents than you can image in the first place.
We recommend you to do the tasting with your friends, in that way you can compare your impressions with each other. And if you have children at home, you can tell them to join you! We are sure that you would learn a lot about the instinct they have and adults have lost.
We are sure that you know how many varieties of Olive Oil are and which one you should use in every case. But, do you know why the Gourmet Olive Oil is so different?
I have a friend that always tells me that we can mirror the Olive Oil ranking with Football League. They have teams in the Premier League, and others in the Second and Third Division. The same happens when we are talking about Olive Oil. In the Premier League are Olive Oils Virgin Extra, in the Second Division are Olive Oils Virgin and in the Third one are Olive Oils.
Without any doubts, the best Olive Oils are the ones that are in the Premier League (AOVE). However, some of them are about to be in the Second Division. However, others are just in their place and others play in International Competitions. These would be GOURMET Olive Oils (with International Awards).
Why are these Olive Oils different?
Last week we visited the new harvest of the centenarian olive trees. This kind of harvest is the same as the one made at the youngest olive trees. However, it has had some inconveniences. But this kind of harvesting is what made the essence of our company.
