Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is the world's finest ham. Free-range, acorn-fed Ibérico pigs live a life in pastoral paradise, and their hams are cured for two years in the mountains of Spain. We then slice the hams here in the U.S. so that you have the freshest, most flavorful slices for your home.

Serve your jamón at on a warm plate with crusty bread and a fine wine. You will be able to see that it is truly 'bellota' by the way the mono-unsaturated fat glistens on each slice of ham.

These slices of Jamón Ibérico de Bellota come from the ham, or back leg, of an acorn fed Ibérico pig. Indigenous black Ibérico pigs roam the ancient woodlands of southwestern Spain feasting on the sweet 'encina' acorns, along with grasses and other herbs. This combination of special animals, exercise, diet and two years of curing in the mountain air all combine to make this the finest ham in the world.

Careful curing is essential for a great ham. For two years the hams experience the changing seasons and lose over 40% of their weight as a profound chemical change transforms the pork into a complex concert of flavors. The resulting hams have an intense deep red color and a sweet, nutty flavor with very little saltiness compared to Serrano ham. The mono-unsaturated fats literally melt in your mouth, the true sign of a Bellota ham.

The acorn diet of these Ibérico pigs is what distinguishes it from normal Jamón Ibérico, which is also free-range and cured for two years, but does not have the same acorn flavored fat.

    "Overall very good but we purchased six 3 oz. portions and one of the six appeared to have been cut and packaged less perfectly. And while the fat is part of the appeal, these slices just didn’t appeal to the eye the way the others did. Still, we admit to being spoiled having spent several days last summer around Aracena. "

    "Delicious! This is excellent ham, carefully sliced and packed. We're not ready to buy a whole leg of Iberian ham yet, but it's nice we can enjoy this unique delicacy in a small package once in a while."

    "Saltier than other iberico bollota I've had in Spain; a bit too salty for my tastes. The texture however was excellent, giving that melts in your mouth sensation"

    "Delish! Sliced a little too thick for our intended purpose (burrata salad with chiffonade of green & opal basil, balsamico condimento, EVO. Wonderful never-the-less."

    "an amazing, although super-expensive, luxury, whether in the US or in Spain. But a little goes a long long way, and it is worth it for our guests who have never EVER tasted any ham like this before "

    January 2013

    "It's meant to have fat on it and it's sliced thin as it's not a slice of water-filled VA ham, but something with a strong taste of the acorns the pigs eat. Nevertheless, this is not a very good brand of this type of jamón. There are far better brands for this fabulous food and I don't know why our Dept. of Agriculture makes it so difficult to import Spanish meats which are clearly safe so that La Tienda could offer a wider variety."

    "This was the best sliced jamon I have ever tasted!"

    December 2010

  • avatar

    "The jamon is wonderful. Will definitley order more as this is going quickly! Only problem was the carrier must have left the carton in direct sun because the cooling pack was quite warm and the fat had melted as one would expect. Kinda messy, but we worked around that issue!"

    "This ham has a velvety mouth appeal to it. It is so soft and smooth in texture one might be fooled with their eyes closed that they are even eating meat. Absolutely no stringiness to the meat whatsoever. The taste was also quite good, I could discerne no smokey taste at all, nor was there any overpowering acorn flavor one might have expected. Likes and dislikes are a very personal thing. I also purchased the Sliced Lomo Iberico de Bellota (also reviewed) which I prefered over this choice. This Jamon Iberica is probably the finest tasting aged ham I have ever had, however the mouth appeal was just not my bag. A matter of personal choice only. Overall, this is a wonderful product that delivers as promised."

    "This is the ham with which I fell in love in Spain. It was a rich, nutty and wonderful woodsy flavor, and unlike other cured hams is not overpoweringly salty. Until you try it you cannot appreciate how truly delicious it is. There are no domestic hams that replicate this flavor as I have tried to find one with no luck. A unique culinary experience!"
