Hams and shoulders are not packed in individual cartons. We place all the items you purchase in the smallest possible number of cartons to save on shipping costs. If you prefer having them packed in a different way, email us at email@example.com indicating how many hams/shoulders you want, where you want them shipped and how you want them packed. We will calculate the additional cost of shipping according to your indications.
We ship the whole shoulder wrapped in grease-free paper and an outside cloth wrapper, all encased in a plastic bag for maximum hygiene. When you receive it, take it out of the bag and remove all the wrapping. You can keep it hung by the string at room temperature for up to 6 months before starting it. Once cutting has started, consume it in 1-2 months.
Once the shoulder has been started, mold may appear around the carving area if nothing has been consumed for several days, especially in damp climates or environments. This is normal; all you need to do is discard the first slice to eliminate the mold.
We remove the rind and the bone, cutting it into as many parts as you wish, and vacuum wrap each piece separately. We leave only the edible fat (ready to slice and serve).
Click on “+ options” to choose the number of pieces you want (default is one piece).
We slice your entire shoulder and wrap the slices in 100-gram vacuum packs, separating them with plastic strips for easier serving.
We can slice the shoulder by machine (+£25.05) or with a knife (+£53.69). Click on “+ options” to choose how you want it sliced (default is machine sliced).

The first shoulder we received was not cured properly, it was pink, raw and mushy inside. Monica at Ibergour was most helpful, she arranged for the shoulder to be uplifted and another one was sent direct from the producer, unfortunately it was un-cured also. This was taken back and a full refund given. While we had some bad luck with our shoulders, Monica handled everything brilliantly and I will be giving Ibergour another order sometime in the future, all down to Monica and her excellent customer service.

The slicing of a ham with a knife is part of the genuine, quality Iberico ham tasting experience. It is a simple process too, with the right equipment. Nevertheless, certain safety measures should be observed.
