Shop Jamón Ibérico
The key to producing such a premium ham is twofold. First, the pigs are confined to a strict diet of aromatic herbs and as the name suggests, bellotas or acorns. And secondly, the pigs live a stress free life, roaming the vast and scenic pastures of Jabugo, Spain. Jabugo's special microclimate and vast pastures make it the perfect environment to rear pure Iberian pigs. Jabugo’s pastures are made up of far-stretching woodlands of holm and cork oaks, where aromatic herbs such as thyme and rosemary abound - the perfect compliment for their pigs’ diet. The end result is a jamon iberico with an unrivaled texture, lingering aroma and incomparable taste.
