L-R: Tito Merello Vilar’s ‘Cinco Jotas Garden of Eden’ design; Celebration Gift Set; Discovery Gift Box; Tangram Box.

For the design-conscious, luxury connoisseur in your life, Cinco Jotas has collaborated with contemporary Spanish artist Tito Merello Vilar to launch an exclusive gift range for Christmas that will excite even those for whom gift shopping proves the most challenging for family and friends.

Made with true craftsmanship, Spain’s national treasure – Cinco Jotas’ 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 the 2019 Oscars by Chef Wolfgang Puck, it is José Pizarro’s ibérico ham of choice, featuring in all his acclaimed London restaurants and cookbooks, it graces the menu at Nieves Barragan’s Michelin-starred Sabor as well as 47 other Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, and it is also 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 Spanish digital artist Tito Merello Vilar.

Having risen to fame on Instagram, where he now has over 200,000 followers, Vilar is known for his vibrant digital illustrations, created on iPad Pro, which make beautiful use of textures, shadows, and intertwining patterns. Inspired by the Spanish Surrealist art movement, Vilar has created the Cinco Jotas Garden of Eden, depicting magical scenes of celebration. In these dreamlike illustrations, there are flying pigs – 100% ibérico, of course, a glamorous lady adorned in a gown created from slices of ham, a guest arriving by hot air balloon, an oak tree with leaves that have turned into ibérico ham slices, and Cinco Jotas Master Carvers slicing ham for their fantasy guests.
