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 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.

Sánches Romero Carvajal sin duda mantiene la buena reputación!Romero Carvajal Sanches surely maintains the good reputation!

El sabor de la paletilla estaba bien. En el centro de la parte mayor de la paletilla (donde no hay tanta grasa encima la carne) la carne se había empezado a secar un poquito pero eso es normal en paletillas con más de dos años de curación. Las partes con más tocino estaban en condiciones perfectas y se podía degustar el sabor suave de bellota. Recomiendo el producto.

The flavor of the shoulder was fine. In the center of the major part of the shoulder (where there is less fat over the meat) meat had begun to dry up a bit but that is normal in shoulders with more than two years of healing. The parties with more bacon were in perfect condition and you could taste the mild flavor of acorn. I recommend the product.

Fantastic Ham, great service!

I ordered the Sanchez Romero Carvajal Ham with just a week and a bit to go before Christmas as a present for the family. I was really pleased with the prompt delivery (under 4 days with the standard delivery option) and the ability to track the parcel on it's way from Barcelona to us in West London.
The ham looks fantastic- we are yet to start it but the appearance and aroma are wonderful and I'm sure it will be delicious!
I would highly recommend Ibergour to friends in the future and my experience of ordering from abroad has been a pleasure.

Ottimo Prosciutto molto saporito un po' secco.Excellent very tasty ham a little 'dry.

E' il secondo prosciutto che provo, il rapporto qualità prezzo mi sembra ottimo. Il graso c'è ma non eccssivo e colore bianco. Unico neo la carne risulta un tantino secca.
Complimenti al Servizio di Ibergour consegnato in meno di 3 giorni e completo.

And 'the second ham I feel, I think the relationship qualitprezzo good. The Original Marine c'ma eccssivo and not white. The only drawback is the meat a tad dry. Congratulations to the Service Ibergour delivered in less than 3 days and complete.

How to slice a spanish cured shoulder

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.

  • Use a holder designed for this purpose, to keep the shoulder firmly in place.
  • When slicing, the hand not holding the knife should always be higher than the hand holding the knife.
  • Keep your body at a safe distance from the cutting area.
  • Slice slowly, without applying too much force.
