Expanding upon the line of Molino monocultivar olive oils harvested in mid November from the O-Med groves in southern Spain, Arbequina olives are crushed together with fresh lemons grown in Andalucia to produce this citrusy and slightly bitter. Pecadito; This term translates to a little sin, a playful reference to the act of adding another ingredient into high quality olive oil which has much to offer already on its own. Don't expect a big sour burst of fruity acidity from this oil, however, as Molino have chosen lemons which impart a slight bittering effect to the richness of the olive oil, like the freshly sliced citrus peel to garnish a cocktail. A perfect finishing touch for fish and shellfish, use this oil also in dressings and marinades, or dolloped onto purees and cold soups.
Owned and operated by the Garcia-Casas family in Acula, Andalusia, in southern Spain, O-Med have been harvesting their own olive trees for four generations and producing extra virgin olive oil for two. In 2005 they purchased a mill in order to produce the highest quality olive oil possible by controlling each step of the process from olive groves to mill to bottle. O-Med produces early harvest EVOO in order to preserve the best organoleptic properties in the oils. As farmers, sustainability is of foremost importance to O-Med where solar power and an incinerator which burns the olive pits produce 40% of the mill's energy needs. O-Med is a founding member of QvExtra, a seal which certifies quality level is higher than current legislative requirements.
