The most expensive leg of ham commercially available is an Iberian "Manchado de Jabugo" retailing at €4,100 (£3,192.76; $4,620.28) and is sold by Dehesa Maladúa (Spain) as of 20 March 2016.

The pigs from which the ham is made are reared for three years, the legs of ham are then cured in a traditional curing cellar for up to six years.

The ham is purchased in one of three ways: the cured leg of ham in its entirety, boned and in pieces, or, in slices packaged in vacuum. In all these three cases the product is presented in a box of wood made by a local artisan from oaks grown in the same region.
