Magnificent aged Bonito del Norte, 2010 harvest.
We were able to secure some very special bonito del norte tuna from Ramón Peña. These large, whole center-cut pieces are from the 2010 harvest, and are aged in olive oil. From a very limited production; each can contains rod/line-caught, certified sustainable bonito that was meticulously trimmed + packed by hand and is numbered. Simply the best of the best available.
Founded in 1920, the family-run Ramón Peña cannery is now being run by the family's third generation. The Ramón Peña brand name is synonymous with exceptional quality, and is admired by a multitude of professional chefs & aficionados of gourmet foods. They are meticulous in everything from harvest, through selection, preparation, and final packaging -- investing the time and labor to ensure only the best. Limited production due to their strict adherence to quality standards and sourcing of ingredients at the peak of the season.
