Established in 1878 Huilerie J. Leblanc is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, the grandson of the founder. The factory grounds are still located in the southern most village of Burgundy, Iguerande and continues to make high quality, small-batch, handcrafted nut oils and vinegars. J. Leblanc has been doing business with the same farms for generations, and credits their products quality to the quality of the farmers ingredients and the care that J. Leblanc takes with them.
For each batch of oil about fifty pounds of nuts are ground into a paste using the huilerie’s original granite mill. The paste, resembling the texture of peanut butter, is then transferred to a roaster, which toasts the paste for about ten minutes while being stirred constantly to assure an even roast. The roasted paste is then transferred to a mechanical press where it is divided in half and separated with filter cloth After being pressed the oil rests for seven-to-fourteen days to allow sediment to settle before bottling. Maximum production is about 300 liters a day.
