Cortijo SPIRITU_SANTO is an extra virgin olive oil that is only and exclusively made from olives produced on the olive trees of our finca. The estate is located in the city of Ubeda in the heart of the province of Jaén, one of the largest olive-growing areas in Spain. We are a family company with a long tradition of olive cultivation. We cultivate approximately 100 hectares of the “picual” variety of olive trees using techniques respectful of the environment in order to avoid soil erosion and degradation and preserve biodiversity.
We make our oil using the most modern techniques and setting careful quality standards. The olives are harvested at the beginning of October at an optimal state of maturity; the fruit produces real olive juice with some very particular organoleptic characteristics, bringing out the intensity of its fruity flavour and the complexity of its aromas: herbal and fruity, rising up in the mouth, with an exceptional balance between bitter and tangy.
The location of our oil mill in our own estate makes it possible to have the olives harvested and transported from the field to the oil mill continuously in short periods several times daily, so that they are milled in less than 6 hours from their harvesting. Due to this urgency in the handling and processing of the fruit, we are able to ensure the freshness of our oil.
The oil is cold pressed at a temperature that never exceeds 22°C and carefully selected for its storage in the bodega, where it is conveniently filtered and kept all year and nitrogen blanketed for its perfect conservation, so that we manage to keep the product’s physical, chemical and organoleptic properties practically unaltered
