More about our history
Casa del Jamón was founded in Ronda in 1989 by Leocadio Corbacho Bocanegra. After years dedicated to the hospitality industry, the unstoppable entrepreneur wanted to put his experience as a ham cutter to even better use. His relationship with ham began during his time in Milicias de Ronda, where he worked in the canteen making ham sandwiches.
Fast-forward to the year 1989, Leocadio decided to open his first business in Ronda, a shop dedicated to ham, sausages, cheese, and wines. Over the following years, his children joined the family business and profession.
Thanks to the experience gained throughout his career, in 2002 Leocadio won first place in one of the most prestigious competitions in Spain for ham cutters. The family’s strong participation in ham cutting competitions has gone from strength to strength. In 2004, David Leocadio won first place at the Villanueva de Córdoba Ham Cutters Awards. Alberto has followed in his father and brother’s footsteps and won first prize at the Madrid Ham Cutters Awards.
A few years later, the family decided to broaden their horizons and opened a new shop, this time in the city of Marbella. After this, they opened a shop in their hometown, Ronda. It is then that Lourdes Corbacho, together with her husband Juan Miguel, joined the family business.
Juan Miguel also decided to participate in the National Contest for Ham Cutters in Madrid and won first prize.
In 2011, Lourdes decided to enter this same contest and also won first prize, becoming the first woman ever to obtain this impressive Awards.
Following that huge achievement, she took part in the First Female Ham Cutter Contest held in Madrid and again won first prize.
Since 2002 Leocadio has put Ronda on the map thanks to the Ham Cutters Contest organised by La Casa del Jamón, turning it into an important annual event for professionals in the sector.
This contest is renowned among the best ham cutters from all over Spain, and it has won two Awards, one in 2008 and another in 2012, being named the best national contest.
