An outstanding green olive oil, with a fruity, grassy flavour.

Reserva Familiar Picual is the flap ship grand cru of Oro Bailen one of the world's top 3 olive oil mills in 2017 according to the Worlds' Best Olive Oil (based on the cumulative score from 14 leading international olive oil competitions).

It is a medium green fruity oil with a moderate spiciness and a very elegant and balanced taste. It can be used on a large variety of dishes but is particularly well suited to tomato salads, grilled meat, carpaccio, tuna and grilled vegetables. Unlike most Picual oils, this does not have the usual bitter after taste.

Produced in the world capital of olive oil, Jaen in Andalusia, at the foothills of the Sierra Morena. The climate in this area is largely determined by the peculiar structure if the valley, which thanks to its ocean opening, allows cloud masses to enter crossing the corridor from West to East aided by the dominant winds and causing important rainfalls during the Spring and Autumn.

The oil is produced from the picual olive variety grown in two farms which are fully irrigated, offering a spectacular stability in quality and quantity. It is extracted at low temperatures within 2 hours of the harvest which typically takes place late October to early November, at the peak of the olive's quality. It is subsequently filtered and stored in a temperature controlled environment with an inert gas. This process helps to preserve the oil at its highest taste.

Oro de Bailen is one of the world's finest extra virgin olive oils. It has won numerous awards around the world including:
A gold medal and "Best of Class" at the Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition 2010.
Two gold stars at the 2010 Great Taste Awards.
Gold at the 2012 The Mario Solinas Extra Virgin Olive Oil Quality Awards.
Is in the Top 20 of the Flos Olei Guide 2012, a guide to the world's best extra virgin olive oils. It also picked up a gold medal in the Oil China Competition in 2012 and another gold in the Intense Green Olive category at the AVPA Competition in Paris.
Awarded a gold star at the Great Taste Awards 2014.
