Acorn-fed Jamon iberico slices

This product is Arturo Sánchez’s soul. The visible face of the pillars and the foundations that have held our house together since 1917: excellence, craft, honesty, tradition.

A veritable gastronomic jewel, because each piece is unique: the height of the union of the best raw material, the pure breed pig raised in the best dehesa fields, and the natural curing in our cellars in Guijuelo.

Time is an ally only for those who can wait: two years of living in freedom, in the dehesa fields, with two seasons to guarantee a double acorn-based feed and its healthy nutritional properties; then, a minimum of 48 months’ curing in Guijuelo, in natural drying sheds, where the cold, dry wind of the Béjar and Gredos mountains do the rest.

Every day is different, a true challenge, and only the deepest knowledge gathered over more than a century of experience by a family who loves their work can guarantee that the 100% Iberian cured acorn ham that reaches your table is unique among the Iberian hams: the essence of a pure, balanced, full flavour. Unforgettable.

Acorn-Fed Iberico Ham

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.

Fino wine, manzanilla wine, lager beer, white and young Reus vermouth are good pairing for Iberico Acorn-fed Jamon iberico from Arturo Sanchez.
