More Information
Raw material Cantabrian anchovies in extra virgin olive oil
Appearance Whole fillets boneless and intact, without cuts or breaks; the colour of the meat is brown to reddish because the fillets mature in brine (with more salt) for a shorter period compared to 00 anchovies
Taste The fillet is compact to the palate, pleasantly dolce and sapid, never salty, with a rich bouquet of aromas
Our selection In the Cantabrian Sea, anchovies live in more hydrogenated and colder water compared to the Mediterranean Sea. For this reason they develop a more compact and juicy meat, with more fat. Best quality anchovies are fished between April and June, when the fish has the most amount of fat developed during the colder months

The producer

Yurrita e Hijos - Mutriku - Spain

Why we chose them
Yurrita and Hijos is a company founded in 1867 by the Yurrita family, which for generations produces 5 Cantabrian Anchovies. Yurrita is located in the Basque Country, Mutriku, that is a small fishing village overlooking the Cantabrian Sea, about an hour's drive from San Sebastian. When we visited the company we hit the link with tradition and attention to quality in every process of the production chain: from the purchase of anchovies in nearby marinas to manic cleaning the fish, from the long aging of the product in salt packaging manual. Every single anchovy fillet is cleaned and packaged manually by a group of only women. "Why only women are capable of doing this painstaking work - confessed Juan Yurrita during the visit - while men are dedicated to offshore fishing." Recently the Yurrita family also acquired a processing facility of "Bonito del Norte", the famous albacore tuna caught in Cantabrico. The tuna is caught on the hook and the fishing trip was a real ceremony in the offshore, which lasts about a week or even more.
