Venison with Chocolate & Chilli wins Gold

By | Aug 25, 2011

Staff at Fletchers of Auchtermuchty are celebrating after winning two prestigious 2011 Great Taste Awards.  As well as a coveted 3-star Gold Great Taste Award for their Venison medallions, Fletchers of Auchtermuchty won the 2-star Gold Great Taste Award for their Venison with Chocolate and Chilli sausages. The Great Taste Awards judging standards, devised by the Guild of Fine Food, are the most rigorous in the UK.
Vikki Banks, General Manager of Fletchers of Auchtermuchty, is quoted as saying: “We are absolutely over the moon to receive two awards. Winning Great Taste Awards recognizes the hard work and dedication that goes into making superb food and drink. They highlight the fact that that the best practice farming methods we use in producing our venison shines right through to our products. ”
Fletchers’ venison is traditionally hung for perfect flavour and a superb tenderness. Their deer graze in extensive grass pastures with no growth promoters or antibiotics so there are no drug residues.  They never go to an abattoir.

And the awards could keep coming – Fletcher’s have been nominated for the Golden Fork award for ‘Best Speciality from Scotland’ for their venison medallions – results to be announced in September. Watch this space!
