Delicacies like Campo Real olives and Chinchón anisette - prepared in a manner so distinctive as to merit their own "Geographical Denomination".
Foodstuffs indelibly linked to where they're produced.
One of Spain's most famous comestibles (or in this case, potables) is Anisette of Chinchón, awarded geographical denomination in 1991. What many people do not know is that it comes in many types - sweet, dry, extra-dry, and "special dry", with different concentrations of alcohol. Other denomination-protected comestibles include the olives of Campo Real - a variety called manzanilla, comprising 75 percent of the table olives produced in the Community of Madrid; the differences arise in the seasoning used by each individual producer. Another is Sierra de Guadarrama meat, which comes in three types: veal, yearling calf, and steer. Finally, there's Madrid D.O. olive oil, bottled under a mark of quality and distinguished by its high content of oleic fatty acid, up to 79 percent. Also standing out by their high consumption (40 percent) are products bottled under the label “Certified Ecological Products”.
