Serrano Ham Sliced by Montenevado
Sliced Serrano ham "24", is from pigs of Celtic origin, bred in Spain and selected for their size, age and proportion of fatty material. A delight for your senses.
Monte Nevado's rich history began in the Segovia highlands, a region famed for its ham-curing climate. In the 19th century, Juan Olmos, a Spanish-American War veteran, kickstarted pig breeding alongside agriculture and a cereal mill—a foundation for their legacy. By the 1930s, the family transitioned to ham production, invested in refrigeration, and embraced a "ham at its moment of perfection" philosophy. In the 1960s and 70s, Monte Nevado's slow, meticulous curing processes gained popularity, driving brand recognition. Their commitment to quality led to a major curing facility in 1975. Today, Monte Nevado is renowned for top-tier hams with a unique emphasis on higher fat content.
Monte Nevado exclusively cures premium hams, including acorn-fed Iberico ham, cereal-fed (cebo) ham, free-range fodder and cereal-fed (cebo de campo) ham, Serrano ham, and Mangalica ham. Regardless of the variety, Monte Nevado prioritizes slow and extended natural curing processes, allowing the aroma and flavor of each piece to reach its full potential. From the outset, Monte Nevado has championed the idea that optimal curing time is essential, neither more nor less than necessary to achieve the highest quality. Their commitment to perfection remains unwavering.
Meat has hues ranging from pink to purplish red with a fine grain, and may occasionally show tyrosine crystals as a result of its lengthy curing process. Characteristic fragrance of delicately cured meat.
