About the producer
Nico Jamones, the producer of the chorizo sausage, is a family business with more than 50 years of history. Based in the heart of Spain, they make the best meat products in the traditional way. In 2016, they won the Food Award for the best Spanish ham and, from 2016 to 2018, the Castilla La Mancha Grand Selection Awards in recognition of the exceptional quality of products such as this chorizo.
The quality of the dry sausage is determined, among other things, by the meat that is used. Only certain parts of the pig are used to give this sausage the right structure. It is up to the producer to find a good balance between the amount of ham and bacon used in the products. In this chorizo sausage, the percentage of bacon is higher so that it melts well during baking.
The dry sausage goes perfectly with a more spicy drink. It sounds logical of course, but drink a nice full Rioga with this sausage, but also think of a delicious Autumn Bock in the autumn. So there are plenty of combinations.
