The first jamón ibérico bellota to arrive on the American shores was introduced to the public at a special carving ceremony during the NASFT Summer Fancy Food Show in New York. The first container full of hams has left Spain and is on the ocean.
It is hard to predict when the hams will be released and ready to be shipped in the USA since there are various stages of inspection required by US Customs and other authorities. An educated guess is that they will be available in two weeks.
La Tienda expects to deliver over 300 hams on the first day of receipt to their jamon aficionados who expressed their commitment to jamón ibérico by placing a deposit in the past several years.
We anticipate we will have enough jamones in stock to cover the Christmas season.
