Product Details


 In the 1950s, Adler made a regional speciality famous, which today has become renowned across the entire world: Black Forest ham. 

Anyone who has ever tasted it will henceforth be able to recognise the genuine Black Forest ham with closed eyes: the deliciously-aromatic flavour is absolutely unique. Just as typical is the special colour, created by the smoking. In addition to this there is another special characteristic for this delicacy: only one speciality coming from this region may bear the protected name of "Black Forest ham". 

Adler Black Forest is made of selected gammon. Finely seasoned according to traditional recipes and salted by hand, the ham remains in salt for a couple of weeks. Subsequent to this, it is smoked with a mixture of green pine twigs, sawdust and wood chips made of Black Forest fir trees.  In the course of the smoking period, which lasts three weeks, the ham then obtains its typical smoky colour. Once this has been completed, it has to rest and mature: after 12 weeks the ham is ready for consumption. 

One can purchase Adler Black Forest ham per piece, sliced, with or without rind and it has a long shelf life if stored correctly.
Depending on the nature and cut, the shelf life is at between approx. 33 and 83 days when stored at + 4°C - + 18°C.

Tips for your enjoyment

Rustic Ham-Toast: delicious basis for savoury toasts or baguettes, for example with fresh tomatoes and cheese or with tomatoes, herbs and olives. It is also really delicious with anchovies, capers and green lettuce.

Company Profile

For the Adler family the love of the Black Forest and the awareness of quality combined with hearty enjoyment are of great importance.  Since 1920 Adler has been manufacturing selected Black Forest sausage and ham in the picturesque Hochschwarzwald (upper Black Forest) and ever since has represented the culinary tradition of an entire region. It is from here that Adler’s most famous recipe for Black Forest ham commenced its journey throughout the world. Adler is the synonym for Black Forest ham! Peter Adler was a pioneer in creating the Original Black Forest ham. Still today this is understood as the obligation to take on responsibility for their own high quality standards.
Since its beginnings, Adler has been situated in Bonndorf in the Hochschwarzwald (upper Black Forest), located 800m above sea level and climatically situated in a prime position with good air. The grandparents of the current company owners used to run a small guesthouse and butchery. In 1935, their son Hans took over the business and then not only enlarged the range of products but in 1955 already discovered the potential of mail-order business with "Schwarzwald smoked products". In the 1960s an abattoir was erected as well as meat-portioning, smokehouse and salt-curing facilities.

Under the management of Peter Adler, the manufacture and sale of Black Forest smoked products was significantly expanded. For this reason Adler is one of the most important employers in the region. The Adler family employs approximately 270 employees at the headquarters in Bonndorf and at the Achern branch.

Permanently focussed on quality, with regard to his employees Peter Adler also places particular focus on the training of own qualified staff, both in the industrial as well as in the commercial sector. Ultimately the name ADLER stands for a high level of competence along the entire value chain, from slaughter right up to the final consumers. In the past and also to this very day.
