Types and Qualities of Ham
The first thing to understand is that Spanish ham comes in two classes:
Non-Iberian Ham or Grand Reserve
The Grand Reserve or Grand Reserve ham comes from the white pig. The second important thing to know is that the white pig is raised all over the planet. It's only raised on farms and fed with feed. It's the simplest of all types of ham and also the cheapest.
Iberian ham comes from the Iberian breed pig whose mother is always of 100% Iberian breed. And it's only raised on the Iberian Peninsula of the same name. It's the only animal in the world capable of infiltrating fat into the muscle. This characteristic is what makes its ham so special and juicy.
In turn, Iberian ham comes in different qualities and flavors, depending on the pig's diet and the percentage of Iberian breed, which can be 50%, 75%, or 100%. And of course, prices will vary according to the pig's characteristics, but above all, according to the curing process. An Iberian ham from pigs raised on feed in a farm and cured for 24 months cannot cost the same as an acorn-fed Iberian ham from pigs raised in freedom, whose ham has taken more than three years to cure, with the care and patience of an expert.
The different Iberians are:
Cebo Iberian Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig fed on feed and cereals on a farm. Our cebo Iberian ham is cured for a minimum of 24 months if it's a ham or 18 months if it's a shoulder.
Acorn-fed Iberian Ham
This ham comes from the Iberian breed pig whose mother is of 100% Iberian breed and has also been fed freely on acorns and wild fruits for the last 4 months of its life, from November to March (Montanera)
100% Iberian Acorn-fed Ham - Pata Negra
This ham comes from a pure Iberian breed pig, meaning both the father and mother are Iberian. It has also consumed acorns and wild fruits for the last 4 months of its life.
Our Flavors and Formats of Iberian Ham
Just as with any great dish, while the ingredients are crucial, so is the touch of the chef who shapes and flavors them. The same applies to ham production. The Iberian pig is born the same all over Spain, but each producing region adds its special touch through several elements: the climate, the diet, and above all, the manufacturing and curing process implemented by the expert "cook," as we call it at Enrique Tomás. Based on these elements, we have a classification of flavors that we detail below.
The mildest and most palate-friendly ham. It's the "all-around" ham because it's so pleasant and elegant that everyone likes it. It's always a safe bet, especially for gifting!
A ham full of nuances and highly aromatic both in the nose and on the palate. Perfect curing for the true ham lover's 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 taste is unmistakable due to its boldness and persistence on the palate. For ham lovers with a discerning and resilient 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, Cebo Iberian ham, and Acorn-fed Iberian ham.
Buy Ham - Boneless Pieces
We have all kinds of sliced ham and shoulder, in individual packets of each type and origin.
We offer packs of ham or shoulder of various types and prices: travel packs, the Experience book, the Excellence of Ham, and tasting boxes that combine ham and Iberian cold cuts. All of them are perfect for making delicious gifts!
