The region around the city of Vic has long been associated with pig husbandry and its elevation, and humid climate have made the town famous for its charcuterie, specifically salchichones.
This salchichón is made using only meat from the shoulder and belly of the pig and is cured in natural casing; the flavour is rich and clean with a hint of black pepper the only seasoning.
This product has been awarded with 2 stars in the Great Taste Awards 2016. The judges' comments were:
"Lovely rose coloured meat on the cross section. Strong porky aromas. The fat melts beautifully on the tongue and the meat has a good chew. Sweet, clean pork, well made and with juicy succulence."
