Sevillano variety olive oil is deliciously unique. However, the trees were not planted in California for oil, but rather for canning. The very large size makes them desirable for stuffing with almonds or protruding from a martini. Conversely, the large size also means they contain very little olive oil, having a high percentage of olive meat and water.
For decades we have been able to sort out the very largest Sevillano fruit and send it to a local canner. Unfortunately, due to a shrinking supply of Sevillano olives, this is no longer viable. Instead, for the past two years, we have pressed ALL of the olives, including the extremely large "Queen Olives". This has resulted in a similar extreme increase in cost. Please know that we are working very hard to minimize cost increases for our wonderful customers – luckily Arbequina Olives are readily available, less expensive, and very high quality! The best part about Arbeuina Olive Oil is that it is the perfect blending olive oil, taking on the flavor of the olive oils it's blended with!
