What makes Cinco Jotas special?
Sánchez Romero Carvajal has been producing Cinco Jotas Iberian Acorn loin (lomo, in Spanish) in Jabugo for over a hundred years, since 1879. One of the company's goals (some would say obsessions) has been to preserve the purity of the species- Cinco Jotas pigs are 100% pure Iberian, descended directly from the prehistoric Mediterranean boar. Almost all other jamon producers use cross-bred pigs of strains of up to 15% English, as English pigs weigh more and produce more offspring.
The incomparable taste and quality of this Pure Iberian loin is largely due to this attention to genetic selection, which undergoes strict quality control to guarantee and safeguard the purity of this inimitable breed worldwide.
