Produced by the Multi-Award-Winning Simon Martin, this Jamon Iberico De Bellota is one of the finest examples of a pure Iberico ham in the world.
This ham delivers the unique taste characteristics that come exclusively from pure-bred 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 a unique taste of Spanish gastronomy in a smaller Paleta format.

Type of ham
This shoulder of Iberico ham comes from pure-bred black Iberian pigs which roam freely and eat a natural diet consisting mainly of acorns. Iberico legs are cured for a minimum of 12 months. This is less time than is required to cure a whole leg as the Paleta is smaller and has a higher proportion of fat. As a result, the shoulder has a slightly firmer texture, a more intense flavour and a darker colour of meat compared with a whole leg. The ham is delivered as a whole leg with bone.
