Losada Mixed Carmona Olives - 198g

The Carmona mix, named for the Andalusian town where the Losada family have grown and processed olives for 60 years, combines underutilized and common Spanish olive varieties Zorzaleña, Verdial, Cornicabra, Gordal and Cuquillo. The result is a range of colors, calibers, textures and flavors in a single jar which makes for a great display on the counter top or olive bar. Each variety is cured separately before blending in a natural brine solution without the use of lye. A great option for a pre-made mix including lesser known olive varieties, the Carmona mix is best served with a glug of O-Med extra virgin olive oil from neighboring Granada, or tossed with a house-made marinade.
Marques de Valdueza
Extremadura, Spain
From the same producer as our Marques de Valdueza oil, the olives for Merula are from the second harvest of the year. The added time on the trees gives this oil its characteristic flavor and a higher smoke point. The name Merula comes from the Latin word for yellow-beaked black bird, a bird that populates the Alvarez de Toledo family estate.
Morisca, Arbequina, Picual, and Hojiblanca
This oil is characterized by a buttery feel that fills the mouth, as well as distinctive notes of green olives, cut grass, green almond and dried fruit.
A perfect oil for cooking or for finishing vegetable, meat, and even desserts.
