Molino Olive Oil

Versatility, thy name is Molino olive oil.

When I first started selling olive oil over two decades ago, there was a dearth of quality oils to choose from. The idea of an "estate" oil, where all the work from growing the olives to pressing and bottling the oil on the same property by one family, was a rarity. I'd have to cajole folks into tasting olive oil to show it was worth their time, and the oils I'd be selling had very broad appeal. 

Nowadays, it's common for many of us to have multiple oils in our cupboards and counter tops. And in an odd but wonderful way the pendulum has swung away from a 'broad audience' to small, niche producers and oils that only a handful of true olive oil fans will enjoy. 

Personally, I still like the oils that please all of us and I think they still deserve the spotlight. That's what we have here: a perfectly pleasant mono-varietal extra virgin olive oil from the world's biggest olive oil producing country, Spain. This oil is 100% arbequina olive. It's a small but stubborn little fruit that grows all throughout Spain. The olives used for this oil come from a single estate in Andalucia. 

It's grassy, a little peppery, but quick with its punch of pepper so that fades. You can use it for all your cooking and flavoring needs this season. You can cook in it (if you're in a pinch) but I recommend using it more for finishing salads or grilled meats or fish. You can even put it out for dipping with some good bread, alongside some apples and a glass of wine.

The 2021 harvest is a fantastic all-purpose oil. It starts buttery with green banana notes which then grows to a light peppery bite.

How to store olive oil

As a very flexible rule, extra virgin olive oil can be stored for about a year. Keep it in a relatively cool, dark place. Heat and light are enemies, so stay away from window sills and stove sides. There’s no need to refrigerate, in fact, we recommend you avoid it.

How do you know your olive oil is the real deal?

Every couple years it seems a big news story breaks about the dangers of adulterated extra virgin olive oil. The oils in these stories invariably from producers who are blending olives from many sources. They’re mixing less expensive oils in, ones that are possibly not from the region they say they are, possibly not extra […]
