Types and Qualities of Ham
The first thing to understand is that Spanish ham comes in two classes:
Non-Iberian Ham or Gran Reserva
Gran Reserva 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 fed with feed. It is the simplest of all types of ham and also the cheapest.
Iberian ham comes from pigs of the Iberian breed whose mother is always 100% Iberian. 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.
At the same time, 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 be related to the characteristics of the animal but especially to the curing process. An Iberian ham raised on feed and cured for 24 months cannot cost the same as an acorn-fed Iberian ham that has been raised in freedom and whose ham has taken more than three years to cure, with the care and patience of an expert.
The different Iberians are:
Iberian Cebo Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig fed on feed and cereals in a farm. Our Iberian cebo ham is cured for a minimum of 24 months for ham or 18 months for shoulder.
Acorn-Fed Iberian Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig of pure breed whose mother is 100% Iberian, and it has also been fed freely on 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 the 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 as with any good dish, if the ingredients are very important, so is the touch of the chef who shapes and flavors them. The same is true when it comes to making ham. The Iberian pig is born the same in all parts of Spanish geography, but each producing region will give it its special touch thanks to various elements: climate, diet, and especially the manufacturing and curing process implemented by the "chef," as we call it at Enrique Tomás. Based on these elements, we will have a classification of flavors that we'll detail below.
The mildest and most palate-friendly ham. It's the "go-to" ham because it's so pleasant and elegant that everyone loves it. It's always a safe bet, especially for gifting!
A ham full of nuances and very aromatic both in aroma and palate. Perfectly cured for the most ham-loving palate.
The flavorful ham is the most recent of all. Its production is smaller than in other geographical areas. It's very deep, different. It's like an explosion of flavor that lingers in your mouth and memory.
The most international ham is the intense ham. Its flavor is unmistakable due to its richness and persistence on the palate. For ham enthusiasts with a demanding and resistant palate.
The whole piece can be a ham (rear leg of the pig) or a shoulder (front leg of the animal). Available in all flavors and origins.
We have boneless pieces of Gran Reserva Ham, Iberian Cebo, and Acorn-Fed Iberian.
We have all types of sliced ham and shoulder, in individual packages for each type and origin.
Sliced Ham Packs
We have packs of various types and prices for ham or shoulder: travel packs, the Experience Book, the Excellence of Ham, and the tasting boxes that combine ham and Iberian sausages. All of them are great for making delicious gifts!
