Jamón Ibérico - The Ultimate Spanish Ham
Spain is the world's only producer of Jamón Ibérico, as it is made with an ancient breed of pig found only on the Iberian Peninsula. These pigs, known as Cerdo Ibérico, or "Pata Negra," are believed to descend from the prehistoric Mediterranean boar and are distinguished by their black hooves - which are kept on the final displayed ham as a testament to its authenticity. These unique pigs are also capable of storing more fat, which enables Jamón Ibérico to be cured much longer than traditional ham, resulting in an intense and complex flavor with an unparalleled note of sweetness. For those who will accept nothing but the best, we are now also able to offer you Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, a free-range, acorn-fed Pata Negra recognized as the finest ham in the world!
