We tasted a lot of hams before we settled on this one. It’s absolutely superb.
75% Iberico breed free range Pata Negra. Fed just with acorns (bellota) that fall from the Spanish oaks. Acorn feeding adds another, exquisite level to the flavour of the ham and makes it the most sought-after and delicious.
Cured for 42 months for incredible flavour. The longer a ham cures, the longer it has to develop the exquisite flavours and textures typical of Ibericos. Needless to say, 3.5 years is a long curation time.
Sweet and nutty aroma with an excellent balance between the savoury and nutty elements and a long, complex finish.
It will have to be stored on a ham holder and hand carved. This is the best and most natural way to enjoy fine Spanish ham.
