Jamon Iberico de Bellota is a fine example of an Iberico ham made without the use of chemical additives or preservatives.
This ham delivers the unique taste characteristics that come naturally from Iberian pigs that roam freely within oak forests (called Dehesas) - a strong, mature flavour with rich acorn overtones. Throughout the 2 year curation period, monounsaturated fats infiltrate throughout the muscle fibres producing delicious, succulent slices which are naturally rich and dark in colour.
This is a great choice to experience the unique taste of Spanish gastronomy.

Type of ham
This leg of Iberico ham comes from specially selected crossbred black Iberian pigs (50%, 75% and even 100% purebred Iberians) which roam free in pastures, grazing on grass, natural grains and legumes. Iberico legs are cured for a minimum of 30 months and the ham has a much higher content of unsaturated fat which delivers both health and flavour benefits. Unsaturated animal fats are structurally similar to olive oil making the ham more succulent, digestible and the flavour more intensive and durable. The ham is delivered as a whole leg with bone.
