The launching of Señorio de Montanera X OLIVA
Señorío de Montanera X OLIVA is a limited edition of one hundred pieces of the best Iberian acorn-fed ham and a maxi-bag designed by Juanjo Oliva, which has positioned itself among the best gift ideas for Christmas.
With the newly-inaugurated Madrid Christmas lights at our feet, a few days ago, Señorío de Montanera presented its new haute couture “Pata Negra” ham with an exclusive Christmas cocktail party held at the My Way Sky Barr. The event brought together a select group of culinary/lifestyle journalists interested in this luxury edition as the best gift for a gourmet Christmas.
Señorío de Montanera X OLIVA is an exclusive collection of one hundred of the best 100% Iberian Acorn-fed Hams with D.P.O. Dehesa de Extremadura, carefully selected from the 2016-2017 montanera season. This limited edition also comes with an haute couture maxi-bag bearing the stamp of prestigious fashion designer Juanjo Oliva.
For the presentation, which was both pure Iberian flavour and haute couture, the Chef of the My Way restaurant, Joaquín Felipe, designed a complete menu inspired by the Señorío de Montanera pure Iberian pork meat. Every single cocktail bite paired perfectly and did not overpower the 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham D.P.O. Dehesa de Extremadura that was sampled as part of the collection, Señorío de Montanera X OLIVA.
The best Iberian Ham
The Señorío de Montanera 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham comes from pure Iberian pigs, reared in freedom in the pastures of Extremadura and fed exclusively on acorns and natural pastures during the Montanera season. Each of the hams is produced using traditional methods that have been handed down from generation to generation. Its slow curing process in natural cellars carved into the rock gives it that distinctive aroma and unique flavour that sets it apart as the very best Iberian acorn-fed ham.
The Iberian hams that are a part of the Señorío de Montanera X OLIVA limited edition have been carefully selected and are exceptional in terms of their morphology, curing and aroma. In addition, these hams have the quality guarantee of the Dehesa de Extremadura Designation of Origin, one of the most demanding certifications of the Iberian sector in Spain.
Special Haute Couture gift
The packaging of the best Señorío de Montanera Iberian ham is an haute couture maxi-bag designed exclusively by designer Juanjo Oliva. Based on the idea of creating a packaging that would have a second life and could be used at a later stage, for example, as a travel or sports bag, Juanjo Oliva has designed a sophisticated shoulder bag inspired by the classic military duffel backpack and the colours of the Extremadura pastures. The design combines two of the main catwalk trends of this winter, an oversized/army aesthetic, and is made of cotton twill and cowhide, two natural materials chosen for their durability, protection capacity and connection to the values of craftsmanship and sustainability.
The result of combining the best of gastronomy with haute couture is an unprecedented product with a lot of character, which represents from its very nature the value of traditional crafts and recovering old trades. Señorío de Montanera X OLIVA is already listed in Christmas bazaars as the perfect gift for gourmet lovers.
