LEICESTERSHIRE BUTCHERS CLEAN UP AT AWARDS
Mountsorrel family butchers and herdsmen Roberts have scooped four prestigious awards in the National Craft Butchers annual awards. Everything that they entered into the competition was placed, including their prime beef burgers and pork & leek sausages. The team make fresh sausages each week in a variety of regularly changing special flavours.
Roberts are well known nationally for their herd of British Longhorn cattle which the owner’s family graze at Wanlip. The prestigious Longhorn beef is used at the shop to make beef, red wine & onion sausages and peppered steak kebabs which judges awarded a gold and silver certificate respectively.
“We are delighted to have the products we make recognised at these prestigious national awards” said owner Phil Winterton. “Now we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we can bag a trophy or two when these four items go through to the category finals next month and perhaps come away with the title of Britain’s best sausage or best barbecue!”
