From the orchards of Spain, our Arbequina olives are grown on a 4th generation family-owned farm. Our Arbequina olives are harvested at the peak of flavor using traditional methods. We visit the groves to taste each harvest to ensure that Spectrum® Olive Oil has exceptional flavor and aroma.
Extra virgin olive oil is at the heart of the Mediterranean diet. The variety and maturity of the olives determine overall quality and taste. At Spectrum® brand, we cold press a variety of olives to create pungent notes which are a sign of naturally occurring polyphenols. We then add Arbequina olives to provide a fruity aroma and taste. Aromatic and smooth, our oil offers the perfect balance-pungent and fruity, yet mild enough to be drizzled on salads or for everyday cooking.
Different oils have different uses, and each performs best at a certain temperature.
With its full flavor and medium 'smoke point' this oil is ideally suited fro sauces and salad dressings, or for medium heat sautéing to integrate the oil's flavor into the finished dish.
