Spanish Deli: exclusive distributors of Beher Jamon in Australia
WHY BEHER ?
Spanish Deli proudly stocks Jamon Iberico de Bellota produced by Beher for one simple reason – IT IS THE WORLD’S BEST!
This exquisite Jamon Iberico de Bellota is silky smooth to slice, cherry red in colour and has a distinctive umami taste far superior to Jamon Serrano or Italian proscuttio.
The melt-in-your-mouth texture is driven by the special acorn rich diet of the iberian pig and the traditional, long curation process. Best enjoyed at room temperature, straight from the plate or in hundreds (thousands??) of different tapas.

THE 3 GRADES OF JAMON BY BEHER
GOLD / Etiqueta Oro
This is the HIGHEST QUALITY Jamon de Bellota 100% Iberico (pata negra), with the longest curation time between 30 and 44 months. These pigs are fed an intense diet of acorns (bellotas), the healthy oils and taste of which infiltrate the cured meat, driving its unique Umami taste.
BLACK / Etiqueta Negra
This is also an ASTOUNDING QUALITY Jamon Iberico de Bellota, with a shorter curation period between 32 and 36 months. These pigs are fed an intense diet of acorns (bellotas), the healthy oils and taste of which infiltrate the cured meat, driving its unique Umami taste.
RED / Etiqueta Roja
This DELICIOUS Jamón de Cebo de Campo 100% Ibérico has been cured for between 26 and 36 months. It does not have the same acorn-intense diet as the Gold and Black Label Jamon, but rather a diet high in natural cereals (Cebo de Campo). It still shares the same high quality, gradual curation process. Derived from pure bred iberian pigs.
MORE ABOUT BEHER
Beher´s Jamon is sourced largely from acorn-fed, pure-bred Ibérico pigs. These lucky swines roam around oak forests, feeding on grass and acorns during the grazing season and are fed on a high-acorn diet as they are fattened. They are cured in high-altitude cellars in Guijuelo, Salamanca for over 3 years. Jamon from Guijuelo in Salamanca is renowned for its sweeter jamón with deep, round flavours.
