From all the family lands that exceed to over eighty kilometres’ squares of olives trees, Macarena has selected the most unique and perfect olives to create a premium olive oil capable to take the family name to another level.

Olive selection

From the over eighty kilometres’ square of olive trees Macarena Olivenöl is made with a unique olive: Picuda. Picuda olive is a unique type of olive which is believed to produce the best quality of olive oil. With a peculiar form, Picudas are not completely round but long. It flavour is characterized for being a smooth flavour with a gentle touch of bitter, something unique and rare to know how to explode from this characteristic and unique olive. The Picudas used in the process are not only unique because of their type of olive, but also unique because of their location. Location is something key for olive oil. In the case of Macarena Olivenöl the olives grow in olives trees located in the top of a mountain in a ground up over six hundred meters of the sea level, in between other varieties of olive trees and with a soil rich in minerals that gives the olive unique characteristics. The olives are personally selected by Macarena using all her experience and knowledge inherited from her father. All the labour force is used during the first fifteen days to pick up these unique olives to transform them into a green gold unique and premium for our customers.

From olive to olive oil

After picking the olives Picuda by hand in the ground up fields at the beginning of the olive oil season; November, the olives are moved to the so called "Almazaras". The "Almazaras" are the small factories that refine the olives into olive oil. The correct election of them is key in creation of a unique oil. The difference between Macarena Olivenöl Gourmet and Macarena Olivenöl Reserva Familiar is such, the Almazara where they were processed. Reserva Familiar was quickly picked and taken into a small Almazara located in Baena, Córdoba, distinguished for its effort and enforcement in quality. This special attention and detail was reflected in a unique flavour. On the other hand, Macarena Olivenöl Gourmet was created in a bigger Almazara, with different characteristics, which didn't give the olive oil those unique characteristics, but couldn't extinguish the uniqueness that the Picuda carried. This gave Macarena Olivenöl Gourmet a smoother flavour without losing a unique quality. Almazaras work only during the olive oil season and are all composed of mechanical process. In them olives are separated from the leftovers -leaves and rocks- and drained to create olive oil, the Spanish green gold.

The process from olive to olive oil is one of the most important steps for the creation of a unique olive oil. Temperature, humidity and timing can change completely the quality of the olive oil. Both Macarena Olivenöl Gourmet and Reserva Familiar where created in the perfect conditions for creating a unique and high quality olive oil. With a low temperature, quick timing between the time they were picked and taken to the Almazara and a perfect humidity, Macarena Olivenöl brings two products unique for exclusive costumers that appreciate quality.
