SPAIN’s most delicious gourmet product is now turning heads in London.

For the world’s “most expensive” Iberico ham is up for grabs in the food hall of Selfridges.

Costing a cool 2000 euros for a seven-kilo leg the Extremadura-produced meat has been salted and cured for three years.

It is sold in hand-made wooden boxes wrapped in aprons fitted by Spanish tailors.

The legs even come with their own DNA certificate as proof of authenticity.

Selfridges fresh food buyer, Andrew Cavanna, said: “Every single gram will be savoured as one of life’s incredible gourmet luxuries.”
