Our Shetland Beef Biltong is made by our Chefs by hand in small batches from top-side and silver-side cuts. Our seasonings are all-natural and the result is a delicious, high protein snack – great for packing in your back pack if you are spending a day in the hills, or for after a work out at they gym, or even served as nibbles with drinks.
Biltong is a dried, cured, long lasting meat snack that originates in Southern Africa where Paul lived and worked for a number of years. It is similar to ‘jerky’, but biltong is cured/marinated before the drying process to impart a greater depth of flavour. We utilise our own rare-breed Shetland Cattle to create this delicious low-carb, low-fat, high protein snack.
Our Shetland Cattle are reared outdoors all year round on a grass diet. Allowed to mature slowly, they forage on our hills in Highland Perthshire, producing a top quality and flavourful meat. We use low impact, sustainable and organic in principle farming methods to raise our animals. Taking care to make use of the whole animal – nothing is wasted.
Here is what the Great Taste Award Judging Panel had to say; “Wonderful intense flavours, very complex and lasting and satisfying to eat. Great natural tasting product that would make a high energy / high protein snack or a delicious bar snack. Meaty and juicy, giving beautifully in the mouth. The seasoning is also well judged – the savoury notes of good roast beef make this a wonderful nibble!”
