BBC GOOD FOOD SHOW BIRMINGHAM
We have just returned from this years BBC Good Food Show Birmingham where we we completely overwhelmed by how much we sold. Due to unprecedented demand we unfortunately ran out of Black Pudding and Lorne Sausage on Saturday afternoon. Sunday saw us start the day with a few Haggis and some packets of Bacon which just managed to see us through to lunchtime on Sunday. Apologies to those who came along to our stand, only to leave disappointed.
AWARDS! AWARDS! AWARDS
2012 has been a very successful year for Ramsay of Carluke. We were delighted to pick up four more Q Guild Smithfield Awards to add to our growing collection. Our Haggis being the star of the show for us, acheiving and amazing 100/100 from the judges. Our other Awards came from the prestigious Great Taste Awards. The Great Taste Awards have been described as the 'Oscars' of the food world and the 'epicurean equivalent of the Booker Prize'
We achieved a total of 6 Awards for our products including a magnificent 3 Star Gold for our Black Pudding. This is the highest award that can be given to any product. Out of all the Black Puddings entered it was the only one awarded to a Black Pudding this year and the first award of that level to ever be awarded to a Scottish Black Pudding. Out of 8807 products entered only 123 food achieved a 3 Star Gold.
The Black Pudding was described by the judges as being 'superb, with a perfect texture and beautiful taste' We also won five more Gold Awards for our bacon, bringing the total number of Great Taste Awards we have been awarded to date to 32.
The judges said 'Delicious'
The judges comments 'beautifully tender', 'very good taste', 'smoke taste is perfect', 'a good cure', 'pleasing on the pallet'.
