Horgan’s Delicatessen Supplies, Mitchelstown, are delighted to be among a number of Irish speciality food producers who have had huge success in the UK, at the Great Taste Awards 2021.
The Great Taste Awards are the world’s largest and most trusted speciality food awards. Judged by a panel of over 400 acclaimed food critics, chefs, restaurateurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists, the awards are widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for speciality food producers. Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else.
Horgan’s are especially thrilled to have received two awards this year for a Horgan’s Honey Baked Ham on The Bone and Horgan’s Silverside Spiced Beef. The recipes for Horgan’s specialty meats have been passed down through the generations of the Horgan family. The business was founded originally by Michael Horgan’s Grandfather who ran a butcher shop in Mitchelstown.
These award-winning products are already in high demand by customers for Christmas 2021. The judges comments on both Horgan’s products have been astounding:
Horgan’s Honey Baked Ham on The Bone
A good-looking ham, with a visible and delicious looking moistness to it. It smells tantalising, and the meat has a firm but yielding texture that delivers the multi-layered flavour with a great saltiness and honey notes which come through without it being too sweet. The colour variations in the meat are pleasing too. A well thought out process that has enabled a tasty and quality product that we were happy to keep eating as long as we were allowed to!
Horgan’s Irish Silverside Spiced Beef
This pastrami has an attractive and admirable level of marbling and a cleverly judged spice level. We enjoyed the moistness, the gentle chew, the fact that the beef flavour was still much in evidence and the fact that the pepper was finely ground. The delicate spicing balanced the beef superbly – for once complementary rather than overwhelming.
Very attractive appearance. Strong cured beef aroma. This has a melt in the mouth texture and subtle beef notes.
