Jabugo's special micro-climate 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 our pigs’ diet. Combined with their diet of acorns, the exercise the pigs get while searching for food, ensures that they fatten at a slower rate and allows fat to accumulate even more between their muscle fibers. The result is an unrivaled texture, aroma and taste.
During the production process, the ham is cooled and cut in a V shape, the outer fat is removed, then it is salted, cleaned, weighed, dried and cured in natural cellars. After 36 months of aging the ham is put through a rigorous selection process to ensure that only the best pieces are finally chosen.
- Enjoy it on its own or accompanied by fresh bread
- Pair with a nice dry Sherry or with a glass of Rioja
- Most importantly...don't forget to enjoy it in the company of good friends!!
