We slice this exquisite jamón locally to ensure that you receive the freshest, tastiest Ibérico ham in the world. Each slice will begin to melt once it reaches room temperature, releasing incredible flavors that speak of the countryside of Spain.

These slices are from the jamón or back leg of the Ibérico pig, which is more prized than the paleta or front shoulder, because it is cured twice as long and has a fuller, more intense flavor.

Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is Spain's treasure - a ham that speaks of the people, land and animals of this ancient country. Free-range Ibérico pigs live a privileged life, wandering the Dehesa oak forests of western Spain. There they gorge on sweet acorns, which add a rich nutty flavor and antioxidant qualities to the hams.

This antioxidant quality allows the hams to be cured for over 2 years without spoiling. They lose an amazing 40% of their weight as the fat drips away, bathing the ham in the flavors of Spain's countryside. In the process, much of the fat is transformed into mono-unsaturated fat, a miracle not to be equaled in the ham world.
