[expand title=”What is the difference between olive oil packaged in P.E.T., can and glass?”]

The 1881 Alta Selección olive oil is the same regardless of the packaging. The type of packaging depends on how frequently you will consume olive oil.

Prices vary according to the packaging size, as does the storage method of the olive oil to preserve all its properties.

Olive oil is a living product that tends to spoil over time due to the oxidation of its compounds. Much like other products, oxidation increases with exposure to light and heat; therefore, the can is the most recommendable packaging for long-term consumption. Glass containers protect olive oil better than P.E.T. because glass has lower light and thermal conductivity.

All packaging formats are appropriate for high consumption households, for instance, in Spain.


[expand title=”Does EVOO have an expiration date?”]

EVOO does not have an expiration date but a best-before date. Each company decides the shelf life based on the packaging date and the olive oil’s properties.

The shelf life of 1881 is 18 months from packaging, as its quality exceeds the minimum standard.


[expand title=”What is the best way to preserve my Aceite 1881?”]

The best way to preserve our olive oil is to protect it from light and heat, stored in an appropriate place with the cap always on. It should only be removed when you use it.


[expand title=”Why is the sediment on the bottom of the container?”]

Many olive oils are not fully filtered to maintain their highly-valued denser texture. This may, sometimes, produce sediment similar to what happens in orange juice (pulp). This sediment does not mean that the extra virgin olive has deteriorated or gone bad.

In winter and at low temperatures, you may find whitish particles suspended in olive oil. This is caused by the solidification of certain olive oil compounds at low temperatures.


[expand title=”What olive varieties do we use to make our EVOO?”]

The 1881 EVOO is a blend of Manzanilla, Hojiblanca and Lechín varieties.
