The producer: Don Bocarte is one of the most important gourmet seafood producers in Spain. Based on Santoña, they are pioneers in olive oil conservation of fish and seafood.
The catch is sustainable and controlled. Only fished between April and June, when quality is at its best. The anchovies are processed as soon as they are caught. They are quickly salted to preserve all the flavor. Immediately after the anchovies are put in salt presses for a minimum of 8 months under controlled temperature and humidity to eliminate most of the fat and ensure proper maturation. Last part of the process washing and filleting, is all done by hand to ensure the best texture, appearance and of course flavor. All the care and attention to detail makes a big difference.
