Llàgrimes del Canigó creates flavored extra virgin olive oil from different varieties, which are bottled emotionally to dress all your dishes. Its elaboration is completely handmade, from the tree to the plate, manufactured with delicacy to preserve its aromas and properties.
They elaborate the oil with olives of the Argudell variety, native to the Alt Empordà area (Girona). Cold extraction gives an exquisite flavor to each drop of our extra virgin olive oil, intensifying its most authentic taste.
Llàgrimes del Canigó is the name that gives rise to a very special extra virgin olive oil. Special because of the olive variety with which it is produced: Argudell. A variety native to the area of Alt Empordà, Girona, highly prized for its elegance and finesse.
Special because it is precisely in this area of the Mediterranean coast where this variety of olive finds the optimal edaphoclimatic conditions for its perfect development. The Mediterranean breeze and the famous Tramontana that the locals suffer are two of the secrets for this Argudell olive oil to have such a special taste. Special also for its elaboration, because the olive oil is obtained in a totally handmade way: from the olive tree to the bottle, manufacturing each step with delicacy to preserve all its aromas and properties. Extracted cold to provide an exquisite flavor, intensifying its most authentic taste. And if that were not enough, this very special oil is flavored with leaves, plants, fruit skins, mushrooms and spices.
It is made by two young entrepreneurs: Xavi and Jesús, architect and lawyer by profession. Lovers of gastronomy and nature. Dedicated to the maintenance and care of olive trees, the production and harvesting of olives and the extraction of olive oil.
