A repeat triumph at the Great Taste awards

We’re especially proud today to bring news that our Morcon Iberico Bellota has received a two-star award at the 2015 Great Taste Awards. This follows on from our success at last year’s event.

Some of the comments received from the judges:

Fantastic texture, good colour, rustic and perfectly seasoned. The fat is rich and soft, the meat tender and flavourful.

Lovely spicy paprika on the nose. Very tender and a lovely level of spicing coming through. Moist, meltingly tender flavoursome and balanced.

Wonderful, long complex flavour.

There is a great paprika colour to this rustic chorizo. We found a deal of interest in the flavour with an easy texture to the bite. There was a hint of a ‘cheesy’ character in the gentle, almost light, paprika spicing.

The Great Taste Awards bring together over 400 the world’s most finely-tuned, demanding palates – belonging to food critics, celebrated chefs, food journalists, members of the Women’s Institute, and farmers amongst others – to participate in the world’s largest blind-taste tests. To achieve a one-star award is a real honour, but to receive a two-star award for the second consecutive year makes us seriously proud.

You can purchase our award-winning Morcon Iberico Bellota from our online store or from any of our gourmet stalls across London. Make your taste buds happy!
