The Great Taste awards judges were suitably impressed and said; ‘A rich dark and sumptuous spread. Rich and decadent. This is a versatile and incredible product. Wide application for this, ice cream, apple pie with a dollop of cream and this drizzled through, also great as a chicken and pork marinade or glaze. This is fabulous, so intense, fruity, complex and with such a brilliant glossy sticky colour. Lovely, beautifully made. OMG what an amazing product.’ Irish Black Butter can be spread on toast, used for the BBQ  or enjoyed with cheese.
