How to experience it

Plato jamón ibérico

You can enjoy Arturo Sanchez Acorn-fed Jamon iberico in amazing recipes or just with bread. There are thousand ways but the real one is to experienced it on its own, without anything else. Temperature is key: it should be about 24ºC, and the slices shine when cut with a knife, just a few millimetres thick and about three centimetres long.

After, you have to surrender to your senses: first, the nose reveals a potent, pleasant aroma with notes to fresh nuts. This will activate the taste buds; only then the whole slice must be put in the mouth, without breaking it, and placing it directly against the roof of the mouth.

The fat, will slowly melt until fusing itself to the lean meat, which will then explode in the mouth with that nimble flavour, pure, persistent, elegant and full of nuances that can only be brought about by the pure acorn-fed Iberian ham.

Jamón de bellota 75% ibérico Arturo Sánchez

ACORN-FED 75% IBERICO JAMON
– RESERVE –

Our acorn-fed 75% Iberico pigs reach 18 or even 20 months of age. They are older than the pigs usually used in this category. This allows us to obtain pigs with a double montanera and therefore a higher consumption of acorn during their lifetime.

They live in the dehesas, freely roaming around oat holm trees and feeding on their acorns.

This way the pigs grow and increase weight of up to 70kg in their second montanera. From these pigs we make our Acorn-fed Jamon 75% iberico, with at least 36 months of natural drying in our cellars in Guijuelo.

Available in these formats: bone-in, bone-less and sliced.

Jamón cebo de campo 50% Arturo Sánchez

FREE-RANGE 50% IBERICO JAMON

We are also different in this iberico category because we know how to wait. These pigs, are born and raised freely in the dehesas feeding since the start with acorns, and in this case also with cereals.

Our iberian “Cebo de campo” free-range pigs reach 14 months of age instead of the industry average of 10 months. These extra months allow further properties and characteristics to develop differently such as its aroma, flavor and appearance

Available in these formats: bone-in, bone-less and sliced.
