In 1996, Bill Clinton was re-elected President of the United States and José María Aznar initiated his first period as Spain’s Prime Minister. That same year, Dolly the cloned sheep was born, and American consumers were for the first time able to purchase jamón serrano in the United States. It all began with a simple clever question: whether anyone might be interested in ordering a Serrano ham. That is what LaTienda.com asked on its first website, a location in cyberspace they quickly began to fill with the flavors of the foods from Spain. Internet was just beginning to blossom those days and La Tienda.com was keen enough to get on a vehicle that soon attained the speed of Formula 1.
