Producing Águra extra virgin olive oils:
We make Extra Virgin Olive Oils to be enjoyed; oils whose different flavours and aromas can be appreciated; oils that surprise you with their intense, green flavour.
We want to reclaim the importance of doing things with love, of taking your time, of paying attention to every detail to get the best of the earth’s fruits.
That’s why we make our oils with these principles in mind:
- We make Águra extra virgin olive oils with fruit from our own trees, which have belonged to our family for generations.
- Early harvesting: We start harvesting in October when the olives are still green or during the veraison period.
- We pick the olives and make our oil on the same day.
- Cold extraction: We check that our olives are in perfect condition before they are ground: healthy, clean, pristine.
An extra virgin olive oil for any occasion
For intense moments and big emotions: Picual Águra is an intense, green, spicy oil, ideal for starting your day with energy.
For relaxed moments when you want to relish a special moment, or for savouring the fresh taste of the countryside, there’s Olivos Centenarios oil.
And Coupage oil is an extra virgin olive oil for everyday use, used to enhance the flavour of all sorts of dishes from sliced tomatoes to roasted meat.
Tasting and pairing notes for Águra EVOO
- Picual Premium Oil: An intense, fruity oil packed with flavour ‒ we pick our olives when they are still green to obtain that fruity aroma. Ideal for toasted bread, cheese, meat and oily fish.
- Olivos Centenarios Oil (oil from centenary trees): Made with olives harvested from trees that are over 200 years old. A delicate, mild, highly aromatic oil from four olive varieties ‒ hojiblanca, ocal, lechín and manzanilla ‒ which sets it apart from all other oils flavour-wise. For toasted bread, pairing with vegetables, and making desserts.
- Premium Coupage Oil: An oil made from the hojiblanca and picual varieties, making it a medium-intense, aromatic and versatile oil for any dish. Ideal for adding the finishing touch to salads, vegetables, meats, fish, dairy products and chocolate.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil Jam: Made using our own oil, it has a surprisingly silky texture blending the sharpness of the oil with the sweetness of jam. Perfect for enjoying simply with bread or accompanying cheese, foie, salads, desserts…
History of our oils
The Águra EVOO family has spent four generations cultivating our olives. In 2012 we decided to start making our own extra virgin olive oil. Our idea was to produce a unique, different oil to enjoy raw with any dish (if heated, the oil loses its fresh flavour).
We want you to enhance your dishes with these three extra virgin olive oils, each one boasting distinct flavours, aromas and levels of intensity.
