Uses

Designed by Michel Favuzzi, a member of the New York International Culinary Center's first class of olive oil sommeliers, our exceptional quality oils are available in three aromatic intensities: Delicate, made for chefs; Moderate, for everyday use; and Intense, as a finishing touch.

Distinctives attributes

Inaugurated in 2008, the mill is located in the heart of the gorgeous Sierra de Gata natural reserve, in northwestern Spain. This ecofriendly mill, one of Spain’s most technologically advanced, is on a mission to make the best possible olive oil with a zero-carbon footprint. Produced by olive grower Miguel Carrasco Lajas, our oil is of superior quality and rich in polyphenols, but remains affordable enough to be used without moderation.

Artisan

Named Extremadura's best olive oil producer for six consecutive years, the artisan behind our Favuzzi olive oil is one of Spain's most respected. A true example of technological innovation in the industry, Miguel Carrasco's mill reflects the owner's environmental commitment and tireless dedication to producing exceptional extra virgin olive oil. 

Origin

Eljas, Extremadura, Spain.

Ingredients

Extra virgin olive oil (100% Manzanilla Cacereña).

Conservation 

Unlike wine, olive oil does not improve with age. It begins to alter as soon as it is produced and can become completely oxidized in just a few months if it is not stored in ideal conditions. It needs to be consumed rapidly for its full benefits to be enjoyed. To get the freshest oil on the market, choose one from the latest harvest, in a dark glass bottle. Avoid keeping the oil on the counter, exposed to light, and near the stove or other heat sources. Instead, store it in a cool, dry place. Close the bottle tightly after use to avoid exposing the oil to air, and consume within three months of opening.
