  • Organic Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Certified organic olive oils use organically grown olives and meet organic production standards for their region. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Hojiblanca

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Intensity: Medium Robust

    Intensity correlates to the amount of bitterness and/or pungency experienced when consuming an extra virgin olive oil. An olive oil with little bitterness that creates little to no sensation in the back of the throat is considered mild. A very bitter olive oil that causes a slight burning or spicy sensation in the mouth and throat is robust. We rate intensity between 5 values: Mild, Medium, Medium Robust, Robust and Extreme.

  • Polyphenols: Information not provided

    Polyphenols are antioxidant micronutrients found in plant-based foods. The phenolic concentration in olive oil depends on variables like the variety, ripeness at harvest, extraction methods, etc. Visit our Health Benefits page to learn more.

  • Acidity: 0.15%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2021

    As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.

Sucesores de Hermanos Lopez

Although Sucesores de Hermanos Lopez has existed since 1978, the origins of this familial company date back to 1845. It was then that from a small olive plot, less than one hectare in size at the foot of the Sierras Subbeticas Natural Park, a patrimony arose that would grow and consolidate itself along six generations.

Today the old olive-oil mill, built by Antonio Lopez Ortiz in 1918, has been fully modernized and possesses the most modern ecological continuous system producing no olive mill wastewater, thus entailing the company's commitment to commercializing only its highest quality products.
