Intensely aromatic olive with aniseed notes and a pleasant touch of bitterness. A Cailletier varietal grown in Andalucia, these small purple olives are carefully produced in small batches, fermented slowly and naturally in barrels of brine over several months, so as to retain the maximum levels of anti-oxidant flavonoids. Use them in a Niçoise and Greek salad, or with pizza and pasta.

Cuquillos is the Spanish-grown version of the French Niçoise, which is part of the Cailletier cultivar. In Liguria, Italy, it grows as the Taggiasca olive.
