OLIVE OIL TOUR
Spain is the world leader in the production, sales and export of olive oil, with an annual production of around 1.2 million tons per year, which translates to roughly half of olive oil produced in Europe, and almost 40% worldwide. In Spanish cooking olive oil is an essential ingredient, and it is a fundamental part of the Mediterranean Diet. While olive oil is produced throughout Spain (there are 29 different regionally protected areas, called “Denominaciones de Origen”, Andalucía is the largest producer and the city of Jaen is considered to be the “world capital of olive oil”. But it is not only in quantity that Spain is the leader: in the world’s top olive oil rankings for 2013/14, Spain took the top 5 spots and 8 of the top 10.
Given its importance throughout Spain, we have created a tour through Andalusia to discover the roots, traditions and varieties of the “liquid gold” of Spanish cuisine. On this tour you will get the chance to visit olive groves, farms and mills, and you will taste and discover the different styles and characteristics of the oil, and of course you will be treated to the Andalusian cooking which utilizes olives and olive oil as one of its star ingredients. Pamper yourself at a local spa which uses olive oil as a base for its various beauty treatments and discover Andalusia on this unforgettable tour.
