The almost mystical origin of the
extraordinary flavour of Iberian Ham

According to an old legend, known by all artisan butchers, there exist some ‘masterful sprits’ that turn Iberian ham into a heavenly morsel: imagination, experience and time.

Imagination is responsible for the whole ecosystem of the pasture and the link between the pig and the acorn, the remote origin of the ham’s extraordinary flavour. As for experience, it has led to the learning of how to dry and mature the ham slowly according to the calm wisdom which comes from following the laws of nature. Time, finally, helps to fix the weak points of the process…
