TAMBOR DEL LLANO is an organic farm where we have proposed to make our own extra virgin olive oil. For this we have planted eighty new olive trees that add to the ones we already had on the farm. More than a hundred olive trees that are distributed by drawing a landscape contrasted with the cork oaks.

It is the characteristic variety of Catalonia (Tarragona and Lleida) and Alto Aragón, although its cultivation has spread to practically the entire country. It takes its name from the Lleida town of Arbeca.
It gives a very fluid oil, sweet and in which almost no bitter or spicy flavors are perceived. Its olive oil has a fruity aroma of olive, apple, banana and almond.
Its cultivation extends mainly through the provinces of Malaga, Cordoba, Granada and Seville. Its name refers to the whitish color of the leaves. This variety has the particularity that it is used both for obtaining oil and for use as a table olive.
It is characterized by its flavor and aroma of freshly cut grass, artichoke and aromatic plants. Its entrance in the mouth is sweet, with a slight bitterness and a final itch very localized in the mouth.
This is one of the most widespread varieties in Andalusia, with a strong presence in the province of Seville, although it is also grown in Córdoba, Cádiz and Málaga. The extra virgin oils of this variety stand out for the balance between green, itchy and bitter tones. They are very fruity oils.
