This is a superior olive oil with pronounced aromas, golden in colour with pistachio green highlights. Very delicate, it is distinguished by aromatic notes reminiscent of fresh herbs, green almonds and green tomatoes.

Produced in Spain’s Andalusia region, this extra virgin oil is made from three olive varieties, Hojiblanca, Picual and Picudo, a blend which results in a complex oil of exceptional delicacy and freshness. The slow development of the olives, harvested early in the high altitude of the Sierra Subbética Natural Park, allows for a perfect balance between aromatic notes. Designated as a UNESCO site in 2006, the park emerged from the sea millions of years ago and has since been sculpted into a rich landscape comprising sinkholes, fertile plains, canyons and waterways bordered by lush vegetation. El Bonhomme olive oil is produced at the very heart of this karst terrain by Almazaras de la Subbética. The word ‘almazaras’ testifies to Andalusia’s rich history: it is the Spanish word for an oil mill, but it comes from Arabic. The Arabic verb ‘assara' means to crush, mash and press (the olives). To this day, Almazaras de la Subbética is the world’s most award-winning oil mill.
