Manzanillas are the most popular Spanish olives, and these are the highest quality available. Handpicked in Andalusia, pitted, and packed in an artisanal quality brine, the olives are naturally fermented and cured Sevillian style. The name manzanilla, meaning “little apple” in Spanish, comes from the olives shape. While you’ll find a variety of table olives served throughout Spain, this variety is the most ubiquitous, thanks in part to the high volume taken from each tree, and in part to the crisp, nutty flavor.
Queen olives, also handpicked in Andalusia, are referred to as gordal or colossal olives, as well. Larger than manzanillas, they provide ample room for stuffing with anchovy or blue cheese.
