FIRST DAY ARBEQUINA: This rare early harvest extra virgin olive oil captures the unique occasion when the very first olives of the new harvest are milled on the estate of Castillo de Canena which produces an oil with more powerful natural flavors and aromas. A result of the season's first 24 hours of milling, this special Arbequina extra virgin olive oil delivers intense flavors of almond, green apple, banana and a dash of pepper delight the palate, resulting in an excellent oil for cooking fish, preparing vinaigrettes and mayonnaise.

FIRST DAY PICUAL: This rare early harvest extra virgin olive oil captures the unique occasion when the very first olives of the new harvest are milled on the estate of Castillo de Canena which produces an oil with more powerful natural flavors and aromas. A result of the season's first 24 hours of milling, this full-bodied Picual extra virgin olive oil has a sweet yet slightly spicy taste with hints of tomato, almond, artichoke and apple. Its fruity aromas are reminiscent of banana, almond and ripe apple, producing a wonderful oil for dressing salads, tomato or pumpkin soups, cheeses and grilled meats.

In addition, each year the label for the First Day Harvest oil is redesigned by a different prestigious artist creating a full collection of fine oils. The 2016 harvest label design was created by Spanish film director, screenwriter, producer and former comic book artist, Alex de la Iglesia:  “Working on this project has not only been really interesting but also good fun, as the production of the First Day of Harvest brings the same magic, emotion and passion to the world of extra virgin oil as the characters in my films and books convey. The label I designed represents my personality very well as I’m as passionate about extra virgin olive oil as I am of the comic world. Moreover, I love exotic food, and it’s amazing how the wonderful juices of Castillo de Canena are able to blend into these kinds of recipes to create the most surprising dishes.”
