Like the York, this is a dry cured ham with a robust flavour and firm texture that develops during several months of maturation. What sets it apart, however, and gives the ham its distinctive black rind, is a fortnight spent wallowing in a special marinade of molasses, juniper berries and spices. This impressively full flavoured ham remains a favourite of connoisseurs seeking the ultimate taste experience.
