Among these awards, the “World’s Best Olive Oil” by the International Olive Council as well as “Spain’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil” from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture.

The PDO Priego de Córdoba is located in the very heart of Andalusia in the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park.

Due to its unique microclimate, the area produces internationally recognized olive oils of extraordinary quality.

At the Muela olive mill in Priego de Córdoba, the olives are cold pressed in less than 15 hours after picking. By doing this, we preserve the genuine aroma of the olives, the best “juice”.

The result is a luminous oil with intense fruity aromas of green herbs, peppermint, almond, banana and apple.

Its flavor is reminiscent of vegetables such as tomatoes and artichoke, and has a slightly bitter and spicy finish.

How to store olive oil extra virginAlso, it should be used up within six months of opening, but better within 30 to 60 days upon opening.

It is not necessary to refrigerate an unopened bottle of olive oil as long as stored properly.

However, if you won’t be using an opened bottle for several weeks, refrigeration may help preserve the oil.

The optimal storage temperature for olive oil is 60 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remember, Extra virgin olive oil is fresh-squeezed juice, consequently, extra virgin olive oil is perishable. And, unlike wine, extra virgin olive oil doesn’t improve with age. Don’t save good quality extra virgin olive oil for special occasions, but it’s a fresh product that should be consumed. Moreover, high-quality extra virgin olive oil provides the best health benefits and flavor when it’s fresh.

And protect it from light, because light can deteriorate the quantity and quality of the antioxidants found in olive oil. Therefore, olive oil should be packaged in dark glass or tin for a longer shelf life.
