Heroina Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil
HEROINA are a young, family run business producing extra virgin olive oil of exceptional quality with a fresh, bold and daring image.
The oil is produced from olives harvested from the family’s groves, located at the foot of the Málaga mountain range of El Torcal.
Totally handcrafted, and with a definite retro aesthetic, HEROINA celebrates the strength and courage of women, those that combine work and family; those who take care of our elders, entrepreneurs, lawyers, cleaners, independent women and those who believe in youth regardless of age. … in short, the heroines of the 21st century.
A primary focus of HEROINA is quality, not quantity. The olives are cold pressed, unfiltered and milled on the same day.
HEROINA produces three types of extra virgin olive oil, Hojiblanca, Hojiblanca Ecológico and Hojiblanca Perdigón, each identified with a different heroine.
HEROINA Hojiblanca – Intense and aromatic with hints of green olive, almond and fennel, the Hojiblanca oil is ideal for dressing salads, gazpachos, roasts and stews.
HEROINA Hojiblanca Perdigón – A robust oil with hints of green leaves, apple and fennel and an intense, spicy aftertaste. Great with mushrooms, beef or with a good warm salad. In Malaga, olives that do not reach the minimum size for table olives are known as “Perdigón”. Heroina have taken these olives and created a unique, intense and powerful olive oil with a spicy after taste. To produce 1 litre of the Perdigón oil, it takes around 10 kg of olives.
HEROINA Ecológico – Intense and aromatic with hints of green olive, almond and fennel, the Hojiblanca oil is ideal for dressing salads, gazpachos, roasts and stews.
