50g of hand carved in El Puerto 5j Jamón. This Pata Negra is known all around the world as the finest in its class. In 2017 the Sunday Telegraph compiled a list of the 10 foods you must “try before you die” this was top of their list.

Acorn-fed 100% ibérico ham par excellence brought to you directly from the age-old dehesas (meadows) of Jabugo in southwest Spain.

Cinco Jotas ham comes only from pure-bred ibérico pigs raised free range in the dehesas. It’s a long and slow process: a typical 100% ibérico pig takes nearly two years to reach full development, followed by about three years of natural curing in local cellars.

With hints of acorns, wet grass and thyme, the aromas titillate your senses and kick-start the gourmet experience before it even begins to melt in your mouth. Once it does, flavors of acorns, toasted hazelnuts, wet wood and wild flowers linger in your mouth as the fifth flavor, umami, adds a final element to astound and delight your taste buds like never before. The ideal accompaniment to drink with the Jamon would be a bottle of fine Spanish Cava.

Also included with the hamper to compliment the Jamón

1x tub large gordal olives , infused with lemon zest and garlic

1x tub salted Valencian almonds

1x tub Picos from Alicante made with the finest olive oil ( these are small Spanish bread sticks ideal with the Jamon)

In Spain many family’s will enjoy this delicacy on Christmas eve..... i will most certainly be joining them !

Enjoy !
