Buying Gran Reserva Ham means opting for a mild flavour suitable for most palates. Also known as Serrano ham, this type of delicacy comes from white pigs. It usually reaches its maximum curing level after 15 months, although Enrique Tomás' Gran Reserva Ham is kept for three more months to give it a more intense flavour and aroma. Choose the format you like best and enjoy a quality product at the best price.
Iberian Cebo Ham is that which comes from Iberian pigs fed with feed, cereals and grass. After 24 months of curing time, the result is a ham with excellent nuances in the mouth. At Enrique Tomás we offer you four different flavours so that you can buy the Iberian Cebo ham that best suits your palate. Whether it is a whole piece, sliced or in a travel pack, in our online shop you will find the ideal format to enjoy this wonderful delicacy.
The taste of Bellota (Acorn-fed) Iberian Ham is characterised by its subtle but intense flavour. This is due to the fact that this type of Iberian pigs feed mainly on acorns and other natural products while living freely in the dehesa (Spanish pastureland). This fact results in a juiciness that is much appreciated by the most exquisite palates. This type of ham takes 36 months to reach the optimum point for consumption. A wait that is worthwhile. Whether it is to be enjoyed with the family or in a celebration, buying Bellota Iberian Ham is a guarantee of success.
Its unmistakable taste full of nuances makes the Bellota 100% Iberian Ham the star product among all hams. Also known as Jamón de Pata Negra, it is an exquisite product full of aromas. Aromas that make you enjoy each slice long before you put it in your mouth. Buying a 100% Iberian Ham or Pata Negra is a bet on a product with an unparalleled juiciness. Its diet based on acorns and natural products, its genetics coming from hogs of 100% Iberian breed and its elaboration following the strictest processes, altogether delivers an unparalleled result of an outstanding gastronomic product.
This ham is in between the Iberian cebo ham and the Iberian de bellota ham. Buying Jamón de Cebo de Campo is a bet that will surprise you. This product comes from Iberian pigs that have been raised on farms with feed and cereals and then have gazed in the pasture to enjoy the wild plants. Finally, they return to the farm where they feed on enriched feed. This gastronomic richness gives it a series of nuances that make its taste more intense and aromatic.
There are many types of ham/Jamón on the market and if you are not if you're not a great connoisseur, many common doubts may arise. That's why at Enrique Tomás, we strive to make the experience of buying a ham as pleasant as eating it!
Whether you are buying ham online or in one of our stores, the most important thing is that you are sure that the best ham to buy is the one that best suits your palate and especially your pocket.
There is no better ham than any other, the key is to like it and enjoy eating it, no matter if you paid a lot or a little money for it. The best hams don't have to be the most expensive.
Another fundamental aspect to take into account before buying a ham, is to know the use you are going to give to it, since it is not the same to buy a ham for a "tapas", for a sandwich or for some recipe. It will depend on this, whether you choose a whole piece (bone-in) , or whether you vary the format of the slicing that you will buy.
Do you want to buy the best hams quality-price ratio? You've come to the right place.
At Enrique Tomás, our experience goes back to 4 decades in both tasting and selling ham! This is how we can assure you that it is not possible to find two hams alike, because each ham is a unique piece.
But when we talk about types of Jamón/ham, you may find it difficult to understand all the types produced in the Iberian Peninsula.
These are the five varieties of ham produced by the best ham masters under our own brand.
The Gran Reserva Ham (poner jumplink a la sección de Jamón Gran Reserva en la página) or Serrano Ham, is a great option when buying Jamón/ham online. It is obtained from white pigs in our region, fed with feed and cereals.
Our Gran Reserva ham is a slightly salty product, cured for 18 months with a mild flavour that places it among the top quality products in its variety. To identify it you only have to look at its brown label and three stars.
Bellota Iberian Ham (poner jumplink a la sección de Jamón Gran Reserva en la página) is the name given to those pieces that come from Iberian pigs with at least 50% breed purity.
They are animals fed initially on feed, which when they reach the first 100 kilos are moved to the pasture to begin their final fattening phase based on acorns, herbs and wild plants during a time of year known as the montanera.
These hams are cured for a period of 36 months or more and are identified by a red label and 5 stars.
This is one of the best hams in Spain and without a doubt, one of Enrique Tomás' star products.
Jamón Ibérico 100% Bellota (poner jumplink a la sección de Jamón Gran Reserva en la página), also known as pata negra ham, is made from 100% purebred Iberian pigs. They are animals raised and exercised in freedom, in the pasture during their final phase of fattening, fed on acorns, herbs and wild plants, during the Montanera period.
This ham reaches its optimum point of consumption after 36 months of curing and after undergoing the strictest production processes. Its taste and aroma can vary according to its origin and the art of each expert or producer.
According to current regulations, the Bellota 100% Iberian Ham or Pata Negra is identified with a black label and 5 stars.
Iberian cebo de campo Ham (poner jumplink a la sección de Jamón Gran Reserva en la página) is made from the Iberian pig that has been fed freely on acorns, but has finished its fattening process in the pastureland with feed, cereals and herbs.
The curing process of our Iberian Cebo de Campo ham takes a minimum of 24 months. It is also a product of the highest quality and an intermediate step between the Iberian cebo de campo ham and the Bellota Iberian ham.
In accordance with current regulations, the Iberian cebo de campo ham is identified with a green label.
If you want to include cured meat in a healthy and balanced diet, the healthiest ham is the bellota Iberian Ham, as long as it is consumed in moderation and with the approval of your doctor.
Thanks to the capacity of the Iberian pig to infiltrate the fat into its muscles and also in its diet, it is not only a delicious meat product, but also a low-fat and low-sodium food. It also has a higher percentage of protein than fresh meat.
Iberian ham is rich in group B vitamins, which are beneficial for the nervous system and is a powerful antioxidant thanks to its vitamin E content. It contains minerals such as zinc, calcium, copper, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium.
The consumption of Iberian Jamón/ham and other Iberian cured meats, is also characterized by benefiting the immune system.

We have been learning, knowing and loving ham for almost 40 years, that is why we know that each ham is unique and that no two pieces are alike even if they are of the same type. However, there are different qualities and these depend on the breed of the pig they come from.
We have the Serrano or Gran Reserva ham that comes from white pigs, a breed that can be bred anywhere in the world. It is the simplest of hams and also the cheapest.
We also have the Iberian ham, which is obtained from Iberian pigs with different percentages of bred purity. Within the Iberian we have several qualities and these are identified with different color bridles that guarantee their quality and specify the type of feeding that the pig has received, as well as its percentage of purity.
Thinking about our customers, we have chosen a simple method based on 3, 4 and 5 stars, assigned according to the quality and texture of each piece of ham. These criteria will help you in your selection process.
At Enrique Tomás you will always find the best hams in Spain. Which one is the best? The one you enjoy the most and which suits what you are going to do with it!

Which ham to buy at
Christmas is one of the most frequently asked questions by our customers. Whether it's to have at home during the holidays or as a gift, buying ham during this time of year is a classic.
If you are already an expert in hams, our recommendation is that you give or buy for home whatever you/they like most. Remember that at Enrique Tomás we have a saying that the best ham does not have to be the most expensive, but the one that gives the most pleasure to your palate.
If, on the other hand, you do not know much about hams or simply do not know which one to choose, there are many types of ham and also formats that we are sure will adapt to your requirements.
Keep in mind that a Jamón is always related to the breed of the pig that it comes from. Serrano ham comes from white pigs, which can be raised anywhere in the world, but Iberian ham comes from the Iberian breed, which can only be raised in Spain and Portugal. This and the different percentages of purity of the pig, is what defines the quality of the Jamón/ham, but there is no Iberian better ham than another.
For those who know how to cut the ham and when there are many people at home, it always works to buy a whole piece of ham or ham shoulder. The paleta/ham shoulder is the front leg of the pig and is a little smaller. Its taste is usually more intense than that of the ham, because the meat is more attached to the bone. Both products are different, none is better than the other.
If you don't know how to cut the ham or you don't have an electric slicer, boned and vacuum sealed pieces are an excellent option, but they should be consumed faster once they are opened. Remember that the choice of format will depend on who the ham is for and what it is for.
The good news is that at Enrique Tomás you will find ham in all formats, whether in pieces, sachets or packs. Also, special packs for Christmas. So, you can give this delicacy to all your loved ones.
Just as any time of the day is good for eating Jamón/ham, any time of the year is good for buying Jamón Enrique Tomás, even if you buy it in summer.
Iberian ham is our most international product and to ensure that our hams are perfect, they have been cared for and pampered for a long time so that you can put only the best in your mouth.
Enrique Tomás has a total guarantee service on all his pieces. Each one of them has a minimum of three controls to ensure that you always receive a product in perfect condition.
If despite all these controls, the piece of ham is not well or is not what you expected, rest assured. Our pieces are completely guaranteed and you will be able to change it without any inconvenience. In the case of online purchases, you have a limit of 15 days after receiving the piece and if it is just begun, that is, you have consumed about 150 grams of ham (not fat) approx, a collection of the piece will be made and another will be sent in exchange. Previously, photographs of the piece will be requested by e-mail. If the consumption is higher, our Quality Department will analyze the piece and if it is largely consumed, we will give the equivalent of the ham that is left to be cut of the same quality in vacuum packs and some others.
If you require information on how to preserve the Jamón/ham, you will find a lot of information on our blog. Keep in mind that proper preservation is vital so that the ham does not get damaged or lose its properties.
Any time of year is good for buying ham/jamón, especially if it's Enrique Tomás!
Recognizing whether a ham (bone-in) is good at first sight is not always a simple procedure and most of the time it is an art.
Its quality depends on its raw material and in that sense, it is vital that you are clear that when it comes to hams, there is a main division. If the pig is of white breed, what is obtained from the hind legs of the animal is Serrano ham and if it is of Iberian breed, what is obtained is Iberian ham.
In spite of the differences, there is no better ham than any other, they are just different products in which there are varieties and different qualities that depend on the purity of the breed, the breeding, the feeding of the pig and the curing process. To understand all this variety, there is a regulation in force since 2016, which identifies through color labels the quality of each jamón/ ham.
Once the labelling is clear, to know if an Iberian ham is good you must pay attention to the hoof part, the shape of the leg and the V-cut. It is also a good sign, that the hooves are worn, since they are animals that spend their whole life exercising.
And to know if the ham is well cured or acorn-fed, check its labeling and, if it can be touched, when the finger is sunk the skin should give way easily, this will indicate that the fat is practically oil.
At Enrique Tomás every product is cared for from the beginning, so we recommend that you try them all to find out the differences. Our goal is that our customers live an experience every time they buy and eat our ham
