It is bred only on the Peninsula of the same name. It is the only animal in the world that has the ability to infiltrate fat into the muscle. This characteristic is what makes its ham so special and juicy.
In turn, the Iberian ham has different qualities and tastes, depending on the food and the percentage of the animal’s Iberian breed which can be 50%, 75% or 100%. And of course the prices will be related to the characteristics of the animal but above all with the When we talk about curing in gastronomy we are talking about.... It can not cost the same an Iberian ham (-de cebo) whose animal has been raised only in a farm with fodder and has been cured in 24 months, that an Iberico Bellota that has been raised in freedom and whose ham has taken more than three years to cure, with the care and the patience of the expert.

If you buy 100% iberico bellota ham, you have purchased a purebred Iberian pig, i.e. in this case father and mother are Iberian. The pig has also eaten acorns and wild fruits during the last 4 months of its life.
Our tastes and formats of Iberian Ham
As in any good dish, if the ingredients are very important, so is the hand of the chef who is going to give them shape and taste. Exactly the same thing happens when it comes to making ham. The Iberian pig is born the same in all parts of the Spanish geography. Yet, each producing region will give it its special touch thanks to several elements. Among these are the climate, the food adn above all the manufacturing and curing process implemented by the expert “cook”, as we call it in Enrique Tomás. Based on these elements we will have a classification of tastes that we will detail you next.
Soft and juicy
Jamón Ibérico de Salamanca is usually the “joker” ham because it is so soft and tasty at the same time, that everybody likes it. It’s always a safe bet, especially to give away!
Deep and elegant
This is what Extremadura ham is like. A ham full of nuances and very aromatic both on the nose and on the palate. Perfect curing for the most loving palate of ham.
Intense and Explosive
The ham from the region of Los Pedroches (Cordoba) is the most recent of all. Its production is smaller than the rest of the geographical areas. It is very intense, different. It is like an explosion of flavour that remains in the mouth and in the memory.
Strong and penetrating
Huelva ham, perhaps more popularly known as Jabugo, is the most famous and sought-after. Its flavour is unmistakable due to its rotundity and persistence on the palate.
The whole piece can be a ham (back leg of the pig) or a ham shoulder (front leg of the animal). Available in all tastes and origins.
We have pieces of boneless ham from Jamón Gran Reserva, Ibérico de Cebo and Ibérico de Bellota.
We have all types of sliced ham and ham shoulder, in individual sachets of each origin and type.
We have packs of ham or shoulder of various types and prices: travel packs, the book of Experience, the Excellence of Ham and tasting boxes that combine ham and Iberian In Spain we know very well what a cured sausage is, but for .... All of them ideal for making rich gifts!
