No need to hype our Baena oil except to tell you it’s a knock-out. It’s also certified organic and kosher.

Baena is picual (the hero Spanish cultivar) and hojiblanca (white leaf) — full-bodied, to put it mildly, and bold flavors that follow loud fragrance. Fresh-cut grass and wildflowers, wild herbs, green apple, citrus. A complex oil, spicy and peppery, a hallmark of an early-harvest, which this olive oil most certainly can call itself. All of this palaver merits my - and most olive oil fanatics - Baena-worship. Smooth, creamy, dense, elegantly bitter, tomato leaf, sweet. ACEITES CANOLIVA deserves all the kudos I can muster. Pepe Cano, son of Antonio, began Canoliva in 1968, acquiring and restoring an olive mill in Baena, southeast of Cordoba, built in 1886.

I have been devoted to the olive oil of Baena for a long time. Baena is a town, and as the Wikipedia informs us, it is ‘picturesquely situated near the river Marbella on the slope of a hill 32 miles southeast of Cordoba. It is the site of the Roman town Baniana.
