Abernethy Butter

Churned in the heart of County Down, this butter is made with care and love to ensure they make the best. They source the most wonderful cream from a single herd of grass fed cows , focusing on quality and flavour above all else. They slow churn their butters in small batches giving them their distinct colour and flavour. Focusing on an ethos of locally sourced produce they aim to make some of the finest, flavour rich butters you have ever tasted.

Time and effort is spent on the production process to ensure we maintain the quality we want. At Abernethy Butter they don’t believe in doing things fast, they take theur time to blend their butters by hand using their wooden butter paddles.

Now this hand crafted butter graces the tables of top restaurants and the shelves of high end shops all over the UK and Ireland.
