This type of pig is usually 50% Iberian pig breed. They live outdoors and each pig has a minimum of 100 m2 of personal space in the mountains of Guijuelo. Guijuelo is one of the most popular areas in Spain for the production of Iberico ham and it is famous for its quality. This type of free range jamon (ham) has a wonderful aromatic flavour. The flavour of the ham shoulder is a little bit milder than the ham because it is not as muscular.
All our Iberico products come from Guijuelo, one of the most popular areas in Spain for the production of Iberian ham. Our Iberico delicacies come from a family-run company based in Guijuelo itself. They all have the Iberico Quality label that proves that the pigs have been treated, cared for and fed under the Iberico standards and regulations. The main characteristic of the Iberian pig is that it has a higher level of intramuscular fat infiltration compared to the standard white pig. This characteristic makes its meat more intense and gives it a flavoursome taste.
