Heroina is the latest creation of the young family business Heroina from Andalusia. Convinced that quality and design is a binomial, they present their olive oil in an original and daring way. The packaging is as important to them as the olive oil itself! The result is a beautiful glass bottle reminiscent of old pharmacies. On the label is a winged "heroine" (heroina) in genuine vintage pin up pose. The bottle itself is in a box of recycled ecological Kraft carton with a beautiful texture. It is decorated with places, dates and cities that are of special significance for Lola and Angelo, the creators of the brand. For this packaging alone, Heroina is an original gift for yourself or for someone else!
Heroina is an extra virgin olive oil made from hojiblanca olives, which mainly occur in Andalusia. It is a high quality variety but not as popular as others, as its productivity is low and it is difficult to harvest because the olives are hard to remove from the branches. At Heroina they're delighted to take on the challenge, which results in a mild olive oil of top quality with a taste and smell that makes you dream away to Andalusia!
The olives are hand harvested and transported to the mill where the oil is immediately extracted in cold conditions and not filtered. In this way all the organoleptic qualities are maintained and all the vitamins, aromas and natural polyphenols of the olives are conserved. The oils of this variety have a high degree of oleic and linoleic acid and a small amount of saturated fats, ideal for people on a diet! Vitamin E content is very high in polyphenols, making it a great antioxidant.
Even the packaging is ecological; all the materials are made in Spain. No detail has been overlooked. The boxes are made of ecological Kraft carton and the labels of 140gr coton fibre. Bottling and labelling is all handcrafted.
Note: The oil is not filtered. The sediment in the bottles is a sign of quality!
Preferably to be used in cold preparations.
