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.
It is 2023, 18 years later our catalogue includes hams from the best brands and Denominations of Origin in Spain. We ship thousands of hams every year to 33 countries all over Europe.
More than 30,000 customers have trusted IberGour for their purchases of Iberian ham of the highest quality.
Our aim is to market the best Iberian ham produced in Spain through the Internet.
— 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.
From the moment a customer arrives at our website until they receive the ham at home, we strive every day to make the purchasing process easy, fast and convenient. To make it so, we work in the same team with specialists in Internet commerce, warehouse staff, technicians and customer service staff.
Miquel Nieto (telecommunications engineer) and Jose María Sánchez de Ocaña (computer science graduate) create ibergour.com, a website for the sale of Iberian ham.
