The liquid gold of Spain - Spanish Olive Oils: Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Pure Olive Oil. The Romans brought the art of Olive Oil production to Spain, but they must in turn thank the Egyptians for the skill. Besides food, Olive Oil has been used for religious rituals, medicines, as a fuel in oil lamps, soap making and skin care application. This so called "liquid gold" was so important that in ancient Greece athletes ritually rubbed it all over their bodies.

It has been medicinal, magical, and an endless source of fascination and wonder and the fountain of great wealth and power. Small production of Oil is still made by the age-old method of a grinding stone. Large-scale production is merely an elaboration of this method. The olives must be kept clean and cool before and during processing to prevent rancidity and oxidising of the Oil. Olive Oil is the only vegetable oil that can be used without refining. The first press produces the finest Oils, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Fino or Virgin Olive Oil - classified by their degree of acidity, which is tested by their percentage of oleic acid. There are a number of olive varieties for the production of Spanish Olive Oils like the Picual, Hojiblanca, Lechin, Cornicabras, Verdial, Picudo, Arbequina and Empeltre varieties. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the guest of honour in salads, fried foods, cooked dishes & Tapas.
