The Olive oil shop
Some bottles can be bought in different sizes.
A word in advance:
EVOO stands for 'Extra Virgin Olive Oil' in English. Translated into Spanish, the abbreviation is AOVE or 'Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra'.
On the label of our bottles you may find AOVE, but EVOO means the same.
AOVE or EVOO is the highest quality olive oil available and is produced through mechanical extraction without the use of chemicals or excessive heat. In Spain, the 'extra virgin' and 'virgin' categories are protected by very strict laws, similar to the laws for wine and sherry.
Casa Junius is not mixing olives from different groves, not blending different oils nor different years into one batch of bottles.
In this section you will find additional information about the source and production of your Casa Junius Extra Virgin olive oil bottle. It is like "Track & Trace" to the source of your bottle. Only bottles, produced by Casa Junius and with Casa Junius on the label + a batch number provide this additional information. On the label of the bottle you will find a date and batch number.
Olives have a long history. In the hills of the Axarquia there are many the traditional olives groves. The sources of all our oils are the olive groves around Casa Junius. Our olives are not mixed with olives from different olive groves nor is our oil blended with oil from other olive groves. Our oil is what we call: 'Single olive' of monocultivar. The batch/quality of our end product, our extra virgin olive oil, can therefore be traced back to the olive grove and the subsequent processing process. Each batch is given a unique number. Harvesting dates and production dates are recorded and are very important for the final quality and taste of the oil in your bottle.
On the label of every bottle you will find a date and a batchnumber. Select both information in the dropdown buttons and you will find where your oil comes from, the exact location of the grove, production date, total amount of oil, etc.

Produced liters of olive oil
'true' means, that the olives are biological grown.
The harvest date and production date should be very close together, preferably within 24 hours. The olives should be as fresh as possible to be pressed to keep the quality of the oil high.
An early harvest yields spicy olive oil, which is used natural cold food, like in salads. The spicy taste is important here. A late harvest of more mature olives has a slightly rounder flavour. This oil you can use for backing meat and marinades. But .... as always, it is a matter of taste.
