Carefully selected one by one.
Our own maestro jamonero handpicks every jamón at its peak. He does this by touching the different parts of the ham to determine the quality and degree to which it has been cured. He also looks over the ham to check the color to determine the proportion of fat, among other things. Finally, he inserts a "cala" or small beef bone, into different areas of the ham. The only sense we don't use is taste - that's reserved entirely for you enjoyment.
Made from the iconic free-range, 100% purebred Ibérico pig.
They're fed an excluisive diet of lush grasses and sweet acorns from the ancient holm oak trees in the Dehesa forests of Southern Spain. This gives them a greater percentage of unsaturated fat, and a cholesterol count that's lower than many types of lean meat, including chicken and turkey. All of our pigs are raised humanely (certified), without antibiotics, GMOs, hormones, or artificial enhancements.
