Drniš prosciutto

Drniš area is especially known for Drniš prosciutto. The special quality of Drniš prosciutto is the result of micro-climatic specificities of the area and the influence of the cold north wind, called “bura”. Traces of pig farming in Drniš date from about 1500 year B.C., and the first reliable data on the prosciutto production in this area are written in the Šibenik Statute in the 14th century. Drniš prosciutto became a known market brand in 1969, when production was at its peak.

An interesting fact is that it was served at the Coronation celebration of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952. Therefore, on the occasion of Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee, marking 50 years on the throne, Drniš prosciutto was sent as a gift to the Queen, and Drniš Mayor on this occasion received a letter of thanks from Her Majesty. This letter is kept in Drniš City Museum.

In 2012, Drniš prosciutto was certified by the Ministry of Agriculture of Croatia as a product with protected geographic origin.
