Origin and distribution
This variety comes from Palestine, and was introduced in Spain by the Duke of Medinacelli, baron of Arbeca, where the Duke used to live. For this reason, this variety has taken its name. Although it is cultivated around the world, the “arbequina” is very widespread in Catalunya and Aragó.

On the palate it is bitter, with an obvious spiciness but without being annoying, a perceptible sweetness, and a clear astringency on the palate. Vegetable-type aromas, with clear connotations of cut grass, and touches of olive leaf, with sensations of orchard plants (tomato, almond or green banana), as well as touches of green, which qualify the sweetness in the mouth. The whole results in a fairly complex oil, of great richness, and with a pleasant sensation in the mouth.
