As Chef Katie Button calls it, “the Cadillac of hams,” – a Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, whole bone-in leg of one of the most sought after food products on the planet. This Jamón Ibérico de Bellota lives up to the highest expectations of excellence. Acorn-fed and 100% Iberico, these hams are brought to you directly from Cinco Jotas centuries-old curing cellars and include a classic stand (jamonero) and a carving knife.
Cinco Jotas ham comes only from pure-bred ibérico pigs raised free range in the dehesas. It’s a long and slow process: a typical 100% ibérico pig takes nearly two years to reach full development, followed by about three years of natural curing in local cellars.
Taste hints of acorns, wet grass and thyme, the aromas titillate your senses and kick-start the gourmet experience before it even begins to melt in your mouth. Once it does, flavors of acorns, toasted hazelnuts, wet wood and wild flowers linger in your mouth as the fifth flavor, umami, adds a final element to astound and delight your taste buds like never before.
