Iberian pure ham of acorn Sanchez Romero Carvajal, one of the best of the world. Ideal for his personal enjoyment or for a gift of pleasure.
The Southwest Peninsular ranges ensure the best feed for the 5J pure Iberian breed of pig. During the Montanera season, the animals travel some 14 km every day feeding on acorns, their main diet and one that gives them their special taste and aroma features (also helping to reduce harmful cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health) and provides the texture and unique flavour.
For over 130 years, 5J has been using traditional and natural techniques to make its products, traditions and techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Its natural cellars are in the Natural Park of Aracena and Picos de Aroche, which forms part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Sierra Morena. This privileged location allows for the slow, natural curing process that only nature can provide.
