  • spanish ham the way it should be

    In Spain ham is typically enjoyed with friends as a treat to mark special occasions. Locals meet at their local tavern in Madrid at the end of a hard working week and treat themselves to a platter of jamón. A nice glass of wine and all worries melt away in the glorious deep nutty flavours of the ham. It doesn’t take long to bring a smile to all faces.

    All of our ham comes from Salamanca, one Spain’s most renowned ham-producing regions. We only sell ham of the high quality ‘ibérico’ variety, meaning it comes from Iberian pigs. Iberian pigs are a native race from the Spanish peninsula that produces the particularly flavoursome meat that makes our hams so special.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Depending on the way the pigs are fed you have three types of ham in ascending order of quality:

    • Cebo: made from free-roaming Iberian pigs that are fed on grain.
    • Recebo: made from free-roaming Iberian pigs that are fed on the naturally-ocurring acorns found in the oak forests of Salamanca, and get a grain complement to their diet at the end of the acorn season.
    • Bellota: the top-of-the-range of ibérico ham. Made from free-roaming Iberian pigs that feed only on the naturally-ocurring acorns in the in the oak forests of Salamanca during the acorn season. We work with small producers that can take that extra care so that each ham is of outstanding quality. Most of them had never sold their products outside Spain before working with Jamón Company, let alone to the UK.

    Which means what you are tasting is something truly special.

    The rest of our products come from areas surrounding Salamanca making them a match made in heaven for our ham.
