Extra Virgin Olive Oil
General Blake is a carefully blended coupage of different olive varieties, originally developed by the master of the olive mill. It is hand picked and a selection is made of only the finest varieties of olives available on the estate – Picual, Manzanilla Carcereña and Arbequina – harvested and processed at its best organoleptic state and only through mechanical processes and cold extraction techniques.
The result is an excellent and extraordinary quality extra virgin olive oil, which combined with the exclusive and special conditions of our olive grove, grant this oil a different and own personality that delivers it unique organoleptic characteristics.
General Blake is an ideal dressing for salads and bread or any raw consumption. It is solely bottled on request in order to preserve its quality and freshness at its highest level.
Our olive mill is located in the heart of the olive grove and is equipped with state-to-the-art technologies, which aims to reduce production time and hence to improve the quality of our products.
The extraction procedure of the extra virgin olive oil is only carried out with cold-pressing by centrifugation. First, olives must be crushed, then stirred and finally decanted by using the highest quality control process machinery and temperature systems (temperature never is above 20°C), setting times for stirring, decanting, as well as oxidation handling (atmosphere control systems).
