Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our desire is to share with you our premium extra virgin olive oil crafted with love using traditional methods passed down through generations. We harvest the freshest olives by hand during the winter from our family orchard which has belonged to our family for the last three generations. It is nestled in the mighty “La Jara” region (Montes de Toledo) Spain, where the olive trees benefit from the ideal Mediterranean climate and fertile soils, giving the olives unparalleled taste and aroma. Some of our beautiful trees are centennials and were there before we were born, bringing joy and fruits to our family.
Jorge Gutierrez & Tiffany Cohen
Introducing “FLOR DE LA JARA”, an extraordinary premium extra virgin olive oil that emerged from a dream of the beautiful marriage of a man from Spain (Jorge), deeply rooted in a family legacy of three generations of olive oil producers, and a talented woman with Jamaican heritage (Tiffany), distinguished in the medical field with a passion for food and healthy products.

Miguel, Rodrigo y Daniel
We’re a group of three friends who grew up in Mexico eating chilaquiles, cooking tacos, and loving our mothers’ home cooking. When we came to the United States, we enjoyed meeting up with friends at great Mexican restaurants, but we were disappointed with the options available for creating truly delicious Mexican meals at home. Together, we combined our Mexican heritage and our years of experience in the food community to create ready-to-eat foods that honor Mexico’s rich culinary traditions.
SOMOS celebrates the cultural vitality of our homeland and brings our mothers’ kitchens to yours.
LALO Tequila Blanco
Each bottle of LALO is 100% pure.
We distill only twice to maintain the integrity of our agave, and add no flavors or additives.
With LALO, our ingredients are only agave, yeast and water to honor the complex essence of agave.
David & Lalo
To say that tequila-making runs in the family is an understatement. LALO is named in honor of Eduardo “Lalo” González, the son of Don Julio González and the father of our co-founder and maestro tequilero, who is also named Lalo. Lalo continues as the third generation of his tequilero family with a bold new approach to perfecting blanco tequila.
After nearly a decade in the tequila industry, David Carballido, Lalo’s childhood friend, approached Lalo to create a truly pure blanco tequila. Together, they wanted to showcase a traditionally made tequila with a distinctly modern, Mexican aesthetic. What began as a small, private batch in Guadalajara is now a premium tequila that is beloved for its crisp, pure taste.
