About us

We are IberGour

Our mission is to market the best Iberian ham produced in Spain through the Internet. To achieve this, our daily efforts are focused on 2 activities: selecting the best quality-price Iberian hams, and ensuring that our customers have an excellent shopping experience.

Modest beginnings

We started small

The first version of ibergour.com was launched on December 30th, 2005, with only two products for sale: acorn-fed ham and shoulder ham from the Dehesa de Extremadura Denomination of Origin, produced by a small producer in Montánchez (Cáceres).

The first sale took place on January 17th, 2006: a 5 kg acorn-fed iberian shoulder ham, for a customer in a village in the province of Lérida (Spain). Total amount: 100,77 € VAT included.

Those were different times.

More than 30,000 customers have trusted IberGour for their purchases of Iberian ham of the highest quality.

— Jose María Sánchez de Ocaña and Miquel Nieto, Founders

The Spanish hams with the best organoleptic characteristics are produced in a traditional way, by small producers and in limited quantities. Veterinarians and expert pork butchers advise IberGour in the selection of those productions that, complying with the strictest health control standards, have the best qualities in flavour, aroma, texture, presence and smell.
