The Flavor Experience
Not just any cured ham can call itself Iberico; it takes meat produced by special Iberico pigs native to Spain to earn the honor. Fermin Iberico Dry Cured Loin starts with free-range Iberico pigs raised on a diet of Spanish acorns in mountain oak meadows. Keeping with tradition, it is then cured with garlic, sea salt, and pimentón smoked paprika for its distinctive smoke. The result is a spectacular and sliceable cured pork loin with very little fat and intense flavor.
Fermin Martin and his wife Victoria started Fermin in 1956 in La Alberca, Spain, using artisanal methods to produce the finest cured pork products in the world. All these years later, the company is still family-run, and Fermin Iberico ham was the first to enter the US market
Set a stack of sliced Dry Cured Loin on your next charcuterie plate next to a wedge of Manchego or Valdeón cheeses, for a culinary trip to Spain! Drizzle lightly with olive oil and a crack of fresh sea salt.
