Hugh Maguire Butchers scoop Gold at the Great Taste Awards

We are delighted to hear that Ashbourne's own Master Craft Butcher had been awarded top prize in the International Great Taste Awards in London last night. Hugh is no stranger to winning awards and this prestigious award can be added to a long list for this award winning butcher.

The Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Hugh, Caroline, William and all the staff on their award. The comments from the judges speak for themselves.

"Why has no-one ever smoked black pudding before?” one judge asked, before declaring as “genius” this traditional blood pudding, which is gently smoked over beechwood chippings for 45 minutes. The process delivers a gentle pepper warmth and mouth watering aroma, in harmony with the careful use of smoke"
