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 anywhere in the world. They are raised solely on farms and with feed. This is the simplest type of ham and also the most affordable.
Iberian ham comes from pigs of the Iberian breed whose mother is always 100% Iberian. And it's only raised on the Iberian Peninsula itself. It's the only animal in the world with the ability to infiltrate 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 diet and the percentage of Iberian breed of the animal, which can be 50%, 75%, or 100%. And, of course, prices will correlate with the animal's characteristics but especially with the curing process. An Iberian ham from a pig raised solely on a farm with feed and cured for 24 months cannot cost the same as an acorn-fed Iberian ham that was raised freely and took more than three years to cure, with the care and patience of an expert.
Iberian Cebo Ham
This ham comes from an Iberian pig raised on a farm with feed and cereals. 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.
Iberian Bellota Ham
This acorn-fed ham comes from an Iberian breed pig whose mother is 100% Iberian, and it has been fed on acorns and wild fruits during the last 4 months of its life, from November to March (Montanera)
Iberian 100% Acorn-Fed Ham - Pata Negra
This 100% acorn-fed ham comes from a purebred Iberian pig, which means both its parents 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
As in any good dish, if the ingredients are crucial, so is the hand of the chef who shapes and flavors them. The same goes for making ham.
The Iberian pig is born the same all over Spain, but each producing region adds its special touch thanks to various factors: climate, diet, and, above all, the manufacturing and curing process implemented by the expert "cook," as we call them at Enrique Tomás. Based on these factors, we have a classification of flavors that we'll detail below.
The mildest and most gentle ham on the palate. It's the "all-purpose" ham because it's so pleasant and refined that everyone enjoys it. It's always a safe bet, especially for gifting!
A ham full of nuances and very aromatic both in smell and taste. Perfectly cured for the palate of the most ardent ham lover.
Flavorful ham is the most recent of all. Its production is smaller than that of other geographical areas. It's very deep, different. It's like an explosion of flavor that lingers in the mouth and memory.
The most internationally recognized ham is the intense one. Its flavor is unmistakable due to its boldness and persistence on the palate. For ham enthusiasts with a discerning and resilient 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 Ham, and Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham.
Buy Ham - Boneless Pieces
We have all kinds of sliced ham and shoulder, in individual packages of each origin and type.
We have packs of ham or shoulder in 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!
