It has been produced at Jornets, a former farmstead covering 27 hectares in Sencelles, since 1998. The product has been sold under the Oli de Mallorca denomination of origin since 2003. It is made from Picual olives, a very common variety in Spain, although the specific traits of the Mallorcan soil and climate give the oil a unique set of characteristics, including a sweet and lightly bitter or sharp flavour. The olives are hand-picked and the oil itself is obtained in the mill using mechanical means, and avoiding processes which lead to its alteration.
