Oro del Desierto new limited edition 16/17 “Oro del Desierto 1/10”. 1/10 conceptualizes 2 premises absolutely necessary to obtain Premium early harvest olive oils:
- This olive oils are the first oils (1) obtained in October (month nº 10) when the olives are still green
- Approximately 10 kg of fresh harvested olives are necessary to obtain 1 Litre of this premium quality (1L/10kg = 1/10)
We bring to our customers houses a fresh unfiltered olive oil just a few months after it’s squeezed in our mill, a seasonal product which can’t be found in other times in the year. Once it decants on the bottle it becomes like orodeldesierto normal range and can be used in the same way.
As it’s a limited edition and fresh extracted oil we recommend to use it only cold for dressing or to dip with bread to enjoy all its properties. During the first 6-8 months as it’s unfiltered when it’s bottled it stays cloudy and later it’ll decant and the olives sediments will go to the bottom, don’t be afraid of that, it can be used until 18-24 months from the production date, but we recommend to use it fast to enjoy its wonderful taste
