Unio Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made solely from the juice of cold pressed Arbequina olives. They are grown deep in the rugged Pyrenees near the French border, in Catalunya. This is a variety of olives gaining in popularity in both the United States and the general population of Spain, for that matter. The olives are tiny and sweet producing a delightfully fruity light flavor, which especially complements green garden salads and light cooking. You can savor its wonderful buttery flavor by dipping a piece of crusty bread.
The economical tin is a practical way to store your oil. Since it is metal, and not glass, it protects the oil from sunlight thereby preserving its delicate flavor and extending the product's shelf life for several months. There is a technical difference between this oil and the bottled Unio oil, which is designated D. O. Siurana. Some of the olives that produce the oil in the tin might have been harvested in neighboring areas, whereas the bottled D.O. Unio oil is required to be strictly from the Siurana valley. But this is a technicality, and nothing to concern you.

"I discovered this olive oil 10 years ago. 3.5 years ago we moved away from the Whole Foods that carried it, to an area whose Whole Foods did not carry it. During three of those years, I've tried about 10-12 different (also very expensive) olive oils. I've been dissappointed for 3 years in every one of them. NOW our Whole Foods carries Unio Extra Virgin Olive Oil again. Sadly it's a lot more expensive than it was when I first discovered it- But it is worth every penny. I have never had a better olive oil- never- not at home and not in a restaurant. This is the best."
"i use this for everything, salad, bread dipping, veggie, meat and fish, literally everyhing, it tastes so good, the price is very reasonale too comparing what i used to pay for a good bottle of olive oil."
"One of the best I've tasted."
