History of Melgarejo oil
The exceptional quality of Melgarejo oils comes from the unique conditions of the climate and the land where its olive trees flourish. The mill is located near Pegalajar (Jaén), where prehistoric civilizations have been discovered.
During the Muslim period, it served as a frontier town, a place of obligatory passage where trade and tribute was exchanged between the numerous peoples that traveled the Iberian Peninsula.
Over time, the Melgarejo oil mill has evolved. Since 1998 they have had a new 5,000 square meter mill which, in addition to the most modern technology currently used in the sector, includes a bottling facility that ensures exceptional conservation and bottling conditions to provide the market with a product of the highest quality.
