Montanegra Iberico Salchichon is a cured sausage made from Iberian pigs from the Extremadura region in Western Spain.
A tapas favourite, this Spanish Iberico salchichon is made from Iberico pigs and has a delightfully nutty taste that comes from being raised on a diet of grass and acorns, and being allowed to roam free in the Dehesas or meadows.
This Spanish salchichon is perfect for tapas, and is at its best when it is served on its own, so you can enjoy its rich nutty taste. However, it also works well as an ingredient, used in pasta and stews - it also works well with chicken and salad dishes.
This Salchichon is a classic Spanish charcuterie product, so try it now, you won't be disappointed!
Use as an ingredient on your charcuterie board, in tapas or sandwiches. For maximum taste, serve at room temperature and serve with a glass of Senda Garnacha.

Thanks to the knowledge gained during more than 70 years and several generations dedicated to this activity, Montanegra produces Ibérico products that are considered to be amongst the best nowadays in Spain. A family business located in the D.O. ‘Dehesa de Extremadura’ in the Southwest of Spain. Its geographical location is one of the best areas of oak trees in the region, making the maximum use of the pasture for the breeding of Black Iberian Pigs.
About 75% of the production is Montanegra’s own cattle, leaving 25% to other Dehesas. Montanegra has an important level of ownership in the main abattoir of the province of Badajoz, therefore having larger control over this process. The drying rooms in Nogales have a capacity of 150,000 hams; the drying rooms in Higuera La Real have approximate capacity for 500,000 hams. The premises located in the South of Badajoz are ideal for the curing process due to the microclimate of the area.
The quality of Montanegra’s hams has recently been recognised by winning a 3 star Great Taste Award in 2013 for their Jamón Ibérico de Bellota D.O. elevating their ham products to some of the best in the UK.
