140 years of craft
Enjoy handcarved slices of acorn-fed Iberico Presa ham from the trusted Jabugo-based producer, Cinco Jotas.
Tasting Notes from the Curator
Acorn-fed 100% ibérico presa, or cured shoulder cut, comes in convenient packets of 70g each to enjoy at any time. Handcrafted in Jabugo by artisan experts, this cured meat is made from a cut located between the top of the shoulder and the loin. Crafted according to age-old traditions passed down from generation to generation, this luxury treat is of exceptionally high quality. The high levels of muscular marbling, a primary determination of quality grade, result in exceptional flavour, tenderness and juiciness, much like all acorn-fed 100% ibérico ham from Cinco Jotas.
There are an infinite number of ways to eat 5J Cinco Jotas 100% Iberico Presa: with bread, with tomatoes, in a sandwich or alone as a snack. But it can also be used to add more flavour to make a simple dish into a gourmet recipe. At the official 5J Cinco Jotas Restaurants, for example, they prepare it with fresh peas, purple artichokes, eggs and potatoes, beans, octopus.
Choose a beautiful lively champagne such as Duval-Leroy Fleur de Champagne Brut Premier Cru to complement.
A TREASURED LOCATION
The Cinco Jotas company has been producing jamón ibérico in Jabugo since 1879. The dehesas there have been home to the famed pata negra for hundreds of years, an unparalleled setting that has provided the animals with their favorite food—and the central key to their unique flavor: the acorn.
Because of their exquisite location, Cinco Jotas’s cellars are able to maintain the perfect balance of humidity and temperature to bring their hams and other products to full potential. Each and every single product ships out from there with a stamp of superlative quality.
Vacuum-sealed packs of hand-carved cured meats can last up to five months in the refrigerator (never the freezer). Once the pack is opened, they’re best enjoyed within the day.
