Almost 40 years ago in the province of Huasco, heart of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile and under the clearest skies in the world, Huasco olive oil was born, a name whose meaning comes from the Quechua and Araucanian ancestors and is translated as “ River of gold”.
Through our long history we have become an oil of medium intensity, with a herbaceous aroma and a perfect harmony between bitter and spicy, which allows us to enhance all meals, transforming us into a Chilean product of recognition and excellence.
The integrity and quality of the oil is what makes the difference between one and the other. The oil that a consumer buys and consumes today must be the same as the one consumed years ago, or the same as the one they will consume in years to come. It always offers the same sensory profile. This is why the Master Blenders exist, a highly qualified team of oil experts, called Oleologists.
