Extra virgin olive oil and aged wine vinegar are two of the building blocks of Spanish cuisine.
Did you know that Spain is the number one producer of Olive Oil in the world?
That's right, Spain is at the head of the game when it comes to production, popularity and quality of Olive Oil. The creation of a good olive oil is more refined than you might think. In the country where people consume gallons of olive oil per year, it’s almost impossible to find a plate without at least a few drops of liquid gold. Be it to add flavor to tostada at breakfast, dress a salad at lunch or include in recipes for dinner time, no Spanish kitchen would be complete without a tall bottle of olive oil.
Spain is also home to sherry vinegar, one of the great vinegars of the world. It is a country famed for its wines, so as you would expect it also has some excellent wine vinegars!The average Spaniard consumes between 1.4 and 2 liters of vinegar a year; on salads, in typical dishes such as gazpacho, in the huge variety of Spanish pickled vegetables, and as an aromatic element in both traditional and avant-garde cuisine.
Artisan produced and vibrant in flavor, these are some of the best olive oils and vinegars you will ever try.
