Anthony Bourdain on Jamón Ibérico, "To pass through Spain and not try this most traditional, most loved expression of Spanish history and culture is like letting the great love of one's life slip through one's fingers."

Joselito is a culinary gem, acclaimed by the greatest gastronomic names and leading food critics worldwide. Dry aged over 4 years, and can be aged for several more, just like wine.

Perfectly pre-sliced and vacuum sealed for all the lazy gourmands out there.

100% natural Jamón Ibérico with no preservatives or additives. Pre-sliced and ready to eat. Pair it with a glass of wine, and there's nothing better.

Serving Tips & Storage

To enjoy all the best qualities of the Jamón, it's recommended to remove it from the packaging at least 60 min before eating. The ham should always be consumed at room temperature. Keep the sealed packages in the fridge between 4-10ºC

Sustainability & Ancient Farming

The Pata Negra Iberian pigs graze freely their whole lives, mainly subsisting on a diet of wild acorns from the protected Spanish oaks that grow in the beautiful dehesas (pastures). This is slow food and sustainable production, with the oaks being taken care of for 250+ years by several generations. If cork oaks grow on the dehesa, the cork is also harvested once every 12 years.

This ancient agrosilvopastoral way of farming is essential to the Spanish culture and ecosystem. The dehesas are a positive way of economically supporting many rural communities and taking care of the landscape.

Joselito received the PEFC seal (program for the endorsement of forest certification), certifying their commitment to the environment. Since 2003 they have planted 536,831 holm oaks and cork oaks.

The company is also the first in the world to receive the international GGN seal, that guarantees that all their practices, both in animal care and in the preparation of their products, are responsible and respectful.

There are strict limits on how many pigs can live in one dehesa, with one pig per 3 hectares of land. There are also limits to Joselito's production, ensuring that it remains artisanal and never industrial.

Ingredients

100% Iberian Pata Negra ham and sea salt.

Flavour

Thanks to being naturally air-dried over a long period of time, there is minimal need for salt. The healthy oleic acid-filled acorns that the Iberian pigs consume are what create the creamy marbling of fat in the meat, giving it a delicately sweet and nutty flavour, as well as melt-in-your-mouth texture.
