Paleta 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 in a smaller format.

Type of ham
This shoulder of Iberico ham comes from specially selected crossbred black Iberian pigs which have been reared on a diet of grains and high-quality feed. Iberico shoulders 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.
