Cinco Jotas unveils fashion-forward gifts for Christmas 2019
World-famous gourmet heritage brand marries food with fashion in its premium, limited-edition 100% jamón Ibérico Christmas collection.
For the style-conscious, luxury connoisseur in your life who seemingly has everything, Cinco Jotas has partnered with one of Spain’s top fashion illustrators to launch an exclusive gift range for Christmas that will delight even the hardest to buy for.
Made with true craftsmanship, Spain’s national treasure – acorn-fed 100% jamón Ibérico – is favoured by some of the world’s top chefs and restaurants. It was served to Hollywood’s VIPs at this year’s Oscars by Chef Wolfgang Puck, is José Pizarro’s Ibérico ham of choice featuring in all of his acclaimed London restaurants and cookbooks, graces the menu at Nieves Barragan’s Michelin-starred Sabor as well as 47 other Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, and is an official partner of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Cinco Jotas’ elaborate Christmas collection, with gifts ranging in price from £75 to £4,000, features several limited-edition items, designed in collaboration with Carmen Garcia Huerta, a Madrid-born international fashion illustrator who has previously worked with Hotel Sofia Barcelona, El Corte Inglés and Suarez watches, with her work appearing in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and L’Officiel, amongst others.
Taking inspiration from that sartorial classic, the silk scarf, Garcia Huerta used a composition formed by elements of the Spanish dehesa (meadows) on which the pata negra acorn-fed pigs roam. All of the aspects – such as acorns, leaves, butterflies, flowers, ladybirds and fruit – are carefully arranged in a vivid, kaleidoscopic layout and evoke the lush landscapes of Andalucía.
Fashion-themed gifts designed in collaboration with Carmen Garcia Huerta:
Cinco Jotas offers a Celebration Gift Set (RRP: £700) – an exquisitely- packaged luxury set featuring an original design and premium gold-stamped finish, containing an entire (bone-in) acorn-fed 100% Ibérico ham, a half piece of Ibérico loin and an Arcos carving knife.
The Cinco Jotas Tangram Box (RRP: £149) is a colourful gift box themed around one of the oldest Chinese board games: tangram, a seven-pieced puzzle with which players create beautiful shapes. The pieces can also be used as small plates on which to serve Cinco Jotas jamón, and a vibrant tangram pattern designed by Garcia Huerta adorns the lid, making it a beautiful decorative item which can be displayed on a coffee table or mantlepiece. The set contains 2 x 80 g sliced 100% Ibérico ham packs, 2 x 80 g sliced 100% Ibérico loin, 2 x 80 g sliced 100% Ibérico presa (shoulder cut), wooden tangram board with seven small pieces, a set of six tongs made from bamboo and a set of two napkins.
Splash out on stylish luxurious items:
The Limited Edition Grand Tour Cinco Jotas Trunk (RRP: £4,000) is a beautifully-designed luxury case in which you can keep your most valued belongings. A limited run of 40 pieces has been produced, with ham specially selected by the Cinco Jotas Cellar Master for its superior quality. Contains a 9 kg bone-in acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Ham, a luxury Zwilling carving kit, a Lodivi folding ham stand, Cinco Jotas apron and a set of six leather tags with which to personalise the trunk.
The All-In Cinco Jotas Ham Gift Pack (RRP: £769) contains a whole ham carved by hand in a beautiful, exclusive and practical gift pack that resembles a tool kit, perfect in which to keep belongings in at home.
