5J ham (Cinco Jotas) has been produced since 1879 in Jabugo, utilising the same artisanal methods. Since that time, the experience and tradition to have rendered this product an undisputed icon of world gastronomy have been handed down.
The 100% Iberian pigs are reared in a unique environment: the Dehesa, oak forests that allow the animals to feed and live in the wild, contributing to rendering Iberian ham so unique. The territory and microclimate are key elements for rearing the pigs along with the subsequent drying and maturation of the hams.
The 5J brand is distinguished by only the best hams produced by hand in the historic Spanish factory.
