If you’re looking for the best EVOO on the planet, look no further than Acquistapace’s. We’re delighted to sell world-renowned products by Casas De Hualdo and bring flavors from Spain to the United States.

The Spanish Association of Olive Tree Municipalities has officially recognized Casas De Hualdo’s mill as the best oil mill in Spain, and its picual olive oil is part of the Flos Olei 2022 “Hall of Fame” ranking—with a perfect score of 100/100. 

Casas De Hualdo has a fruity flavor and aromas of green leaf, green banana, and peppermint. It has not only fantastic flavor but also health-promoting natural ingredients. Picual Extra Virgin olive oil contains high amounts of oleic acid, an agent that helps prevent cardiovascular disease.

3. Red Boat Fish Sauce

The last (but certainly not least!) product we want to highlight this month is Red Boat Fish Sauce. When chefs need the perfect combination of fermented fish and salt, they turn to Red Boat’s delectable Fish Sauce. This sauce contains no additives or preservatives, only two quality ingredients: sea salt and black anchovies caught in the wild.

Red Boat brings unparalleled flavor and quality to its fish sauce. Made in Vietnam using a time-honored fermentation process, it stays true to Southeast Asian cuisine.

If you’re looking for Red Boat Fish Sauce, you aren’t likely to find it anywhere else. This product is rare in Louisiana, and we’re proud to be one of the only stores in the New Orleans area to sell it. Buy yours today and bring world-class international flavors right to your kitchen stove!
