OLIVE oil started out as part of the staple diet of the poor in Andalucia and was made at home.
Now it has been turned into a luxury item with Marbella, predictably perhaps, creating the world’s most exclusive olive oil.
Costing 170 euros a bottle, Olivia Marbella, has released just 75 bottles onto the market.
And sales are already taking off.
The bottles are Swarovski crystal and hand finished with individual numbers for maximum exclusivity – just like the buyers.
The fruit of the top quality Picual trees is hand-picked rather than being beaten off the branches as is usual.
Cold-pressed on site so no second class olives can get near it, it has a minimum acidity of between 0.1º and 0.2º.
The particular olive grove in question belongs to a Granada millionaire and its location is a closely guarded secret.
