Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is the finest ham in the world, and 5J (Cinco Jotas) has the reputation as the best brand in all of Spain. Special 'pata negra' black pigs live a free-range life on the 'dehesa' rangelands of western Spain, where they feast on sweet acorns called 'bellota'.
Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is the ultimate of its kind, in a class with Beluga caviar or Kobe beef. Thin slices of this finest of all hams will literally start to melt at room temperature. The reason is that the jamón is marbled with golden, acorn flavored fat that is rich in unsaturated healthy oils.
