This attractive bottle holds a very special extra virgin olive oil. It is a coupage of the juice of two excellent mild olives, Arbequina and Hojiblanca. The resulting oil is fruity and aromatic with subtle almond flavors, perfect for fresh salads and for sauteing vegetables and seafood.
The key to the fresh, fruity flavor of this olive oil is the careful handling of the ripe olives. They are harvested at the perfect time to capture the optimal flavor and quality and pressed within six hours of being picked. Very fresh olives retain all the beneficial vitamins and antioxidants that not only taste wonderful but are a proven healthy part of the Mediterranean diet.
Each bottle is branded with the famous Osborne Bull logo, a symbol of Spanish quality. The creator of this olive oil is from the Osborne sherry family, and is proud to display the famed bull on his cherished product. The bull symbol originated as huge billboards advertising brandy in the 1960s, and to this day you can see these elegant silhouettes across Spain.
The family that produces Ego Sum has been growing olives since the 19th century near the small village of Viso del Marqués, in the region of Castilla La Mancha. There they tend more than 12,000 trees, using the knowledge of generations paired with modern techniques to create a healthy, flavorful and pure extra virgin olive oil.
Store your olive oil in a cool place away from light or heat. Fresh olive oil is best used within a few weeks of opening to enjoy its fullest flavor and healthy properties.
