Honesty in the selection oil labeling

One of the main values ​​of Aceites Morales is honesty with all the stakeholders of our company: Farmers, suppliers and, of course, customers…

Lately a recurring question is appearing to us… What type of olive is each of the Selección varieties made of? Why haven’t you included the variety in the bottle?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil could be differentiated according to the variety of olive used in its production, but technically it is inoperative and in most cases to achieve a balanced oil, it is advisable to mix at least two varieties.

Among the main olive varieties of our geographical area we find Picual, Hojiblanca, Lucio and to a lesser extent Picudo. The predominant variety in our area is Picual and therefore, all our oils have a high Picual oil content, followed by Hojiblanca, Picudo and Lucio…

Our hoppers have a capacity of 240,000kg. The quantity of olives needed to fill our blenders and make only one complete run is approximately 9,000kg. It is unfeasible not to mix olives at any of the production points since it is the farmers who choose the moment of collection.

If already in this first phase it is difficult to make this separation, in storage even more… The capacity of a drum is 50,000Kg of oil and it would be operationally unfeasible to leave a drum halfway, to get a monovarietal.

In summary, due to the technical inoperability, the search for that organoleptic balance and the seriousness with which Aceites Morales treats the labeling, they mean that we have not named each bottle with a variety…

Now, if we could make a reference to the predominant oil in each brand:

Aliño: It is a coupage of Picual and Picuda olives. It is the greenest olive oil and for this reason, its intense flavor.

Tribune: In this case, the coupage is Picual and Hojiblanca olives. It stands out for its balance and for its moderate aromatic intensity with fruit and vegetable notes.

Museum: The mixing ratio is what we have used to do for many years in Morales. It contains different percentages of Picual, Hojiblanca and Lucio… These percentages make Museo a very balanced oil for the taste of all palates.

We hope you have found it interesting and helpful in choosing your Morales Oil.
