High Quality Olive Oil - Lajar

In the centre of the Iberian Peninsula there is a low altitude mountain range known as Los Montes de Toledo. This area is of great ecological value, comprising the Cabañeros nature reserve where many endangered species coexist, such as the lynx and the golden eagle, together with wild boar, deer and roe deer.

Traditionally, the olive oils produced here have been highly regarded by olive oil connoisseurs for their extraordinary quality, which since long ago has been termed colloquially as Tipo Toledo (Toledo Type). This high quality of olive oil is due to the presence of exceptionally favourable conditions for olive tree cultivation in both climate and soil, in addition to the use of theCornicabra olive variety. Cornicabra is native to this region and is fruit of the slow selection process conducted by settlers of the area throughout time: from the first Phoenicians until today, including the Roman and Arab civilizations. This process has resulted in Cornicabra’s excelling adaptation to the environment.

The olive oils protected by Denominación de Origen Protegida Montes de Toledo (D.O.P.) (Protected Appellation of Origin), must meet the demanding product specifications established which regulate their production process. These specifications cover all the stages of production and guarantee not only the origin of the extra virgin olive oil, the main differentiating characteristic, but also its traceability. It details the required conditions of the olive groves, their harvest, the transportation of the olives, as well as the processing of the olive fruit and its storage and packaging; without forgetting the physicochemical and organoleptic features.
