Iberico de Bellota Jamon - 80g Sliced
One of the most luxurious products on the globe.
Carrasco are one of the most traditional Jamon houses currently in operation, still relying on the seasonal winds rolling off the Sierra de Gredos to dry their hams – decades after the majority of producers switched to air conditioners.
They’re also exceptional in the extent to which they control production, from farming the huge black Iberico pigs right through to the packaging of the final product. Each step is managed in-house, and done slowly, methodically and traditionally.
The uniquely marbled Ibericos, which have much closer links to local wild boars than they do domestic white pigs, roam free range and feast on acorns that litter the ground across the Carrasco dehesa. The pigs are kept to at least three years of age before slaughter, a full year older than the typical age for Iberico Jamon.
The result is one of the richest, most intensely flavoured hams produced anywhere in the world. Carrasco’s Jamon is cured and aged for a full three years prior to release. The Jamon has an incredible amount of intramuscular fat, which literally melts on the tongue.
