TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Serpis Green Olives Stuffed with Pimiento Red Pepper is an absolutely delicious experience. The olives themselves are quality—tender and juicy, with a great flavor. They’re stuffed with traditional hot chili peppers, which gives it a bold flavor with a great kick.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Enjoy the Serpis Green Olives Stuffed with Pimiento Red Pepper with some crusty French bread, Spanish cold cuts (we suggest chorizo or jamon), and some Manchego cheese. Serve it as appetizer or tapas. They also give a great kick to your salads. Level up your aglio e olio pasta with a sprinkling of these olives, too. Or include them in your sandwiches! They’re a great addition to your tuna salad. Or get some focaccia, and stuff it with these olives, with goat cheese and salami.
FROM TEXTILE TO OLIVES
Serpis began in Alcoy in the 1920’s, a city then renowned for its booming textile industry. Cándido Miró Rabasa was a textile businessman from this city, and it was around this time that his interest in a different venture came to fruition: the manufacturing of anchovy-stuffed olives.
Of course, anchovy-stuffed olives were already a common appetizer, with each olive carefully pitted and stuffed with anchovies by hand. Cándido, however, industrialized the process of stuffing and packaging, and by 1926, he had a pitting machine. Without sacrificing quality and taste, Serpis Olives has grown, with innovations in technology and manufacturing processes. And today, they are one of the leading names in the olive industry.
