Royal is a unique varietal native to the Cazorla Mountains of Jaen in Southern Spain whose cultivation goes back hundreds of years. Because the Royal olives and tree are very delicate, it requires the olives to be collected by hand. Its flavor is elegant with soft fruit, yet balanced and round, showing a slight touch of bitterness on the palate with harmonious notes of sweet green banana, almond and artichoke. Royal has a unique taste and versatility making it a favorite of gourmet chefs.

PRODUCER PROFILE:

Castillo de Canena

Located in the Guadalquivir Valley in the region of Jaen in the heart of Andalusia, Castillo de Canena is a distinct and unique family business involved in the complete process in creating extra virgin oils, from the trees and the land to its commercialization. Author and journalist, Tom Mueller, visits the Castillo de Canena Estate in his acclaimed book, Extra Virginity, and highlights the careful practices of the company. During the harvest, the olives are selected by hand at the perfect time, from specially selected trees before being carefully transferred to their mill. The olive trees are gently watered by 8 kilometers of the river Guadiana Menor, giving their oils a sweeter and less peppery taste and guaranteeing each year‰Ûªs harvest will be full of aroma and taste. Castillo de Canena takes great care of their olives and their land with a ‰ÛÏnatural and environmentally respectful and integrated system‰Û and is certified on a monthly basis by official inspectors. The company received the highest score of 98 points in the 2015 Flos Olei Guidebook and is consistently featured in the ‰ÛÏTop 20‰Û extra virgin olive oils year after year.
