Types and Qualities of Ham
The first thing to understand is that Spanish ham comes in two categories:
Non-Iberian Ham or Grand Reserve
The Grand Reserve ham or Grand Reserve ham comes from white pigs. The second important thing to know is that white pigs are raised all over the world. They are raised only on farms and are fed with feed. It is the simplest of all types of ham and also the cheapest.
The Iberian ham comes from pigs of the Iberian breed, whose mother is always of 100% Iberian breed. And it is only raised on the Peninsula of the same name. It is the only animal in the world that has the ability to infiltrate fat into the muscle. This characteristic is what makes its ham so special and juicy.
Furthermore, Iberian ham has different qualities and flavors, depending on the diet and the percentage of Iberian breed of the animal, which can be 50%, 75%, or 100%. And of course, prices will correspond to the characteristics of the animal but especially to the curing process. It cannot cost the same as an Iberian ham from pigs raised only on a farm with feed and cured in 24 months, as an acorn-fed Iberian where the ham has taken more than three years to cure, with the care and patience of an expert.
The different types of Iberian ham are:
Iberian Cebo Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig fed on a farm with feed and cereals. Our cebo Iberian ham is cured for a minimum of 24 months if it's ham or 18 months if it's a shoulder.
Acorn-fed Iberian Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig whose mother is 100% Iberian and has been fed freely with acorns and wild fruits during the last 4 months of its life, from November to March (Montanera)
100% Iberian Bellota Ham - Pata Negra
This ham comes from a purebred Iberian pig, meaning both its father and mother are Iberian. It has also consumed acorns and wild fruits during the last 4 months of its life.
Our Flavors and Formats of Iberian Ham
Just like in any great dish, while the ingredients are important, the hand of the chef shaping and enhancing them is even more so. The same applies to making ham. Iberian pigs are born the same all over Spain, but each producing region adds its special touch due to various elements: climate, diet, and especially the manufacturing and curing process carried out by the expert "chef," as we call it at Enrique Tomás. Based on these elements, we have a classification of flavors that we detail for you below.
The mildest and most palate-friendly ham. It's the "all-purpose" ham because it's so pleasant and elegant that everyone likes it. It's always a safe bet, especially as a gift!
A ham full of nuances and highly aromatic both on the nose and palate. Perfect curing for the most devoted ham lover.
The savory ham is the most recent of all. Its production is smaller than what is usually found in other geographical areas. It's very deep, different. It's like an explosion of flavor that lingers in the mouth and memory.
The most international ham is the intense ham. Its taste is unmistakable due to its robustness and persistence on the palate. For ham enthusiasts with a demanding and robust palate.
The whole piece can be a ham (hind leg of the pig) or a shoulder (front leg of the animal). Available in all flavors and origins.
We have boneless pieces of Grand Reserve Ham, Iberian Cebo Ham, and Acorn-fed Iberian Ham.
We have all kinds of sliced ham and shoulder, in individual packs for each origin and type.
We have packs of ham or shoulder of various types and prices: travel packs, the Experience Book, the Jamón Excellence, and the tasting boxes that combine ham and Iberian sausages. All of them are ideal for making delicious gifts!
