Paul Buttling of T Buttling Butchers in Ludwell tells us of his excitement at being named Britain’s Best Sausage Maker, or ‘Champion of Champions’ in the Meat Trades Journal’s annual contest.
The awards recognise the achievements of independent butchers’ shops throughout the country. The shop has been a finalist on several occasions, but this is the first time their sausages have won the national award.
Paul’s son Tom tells us that the win takes on a special meaning for the family following the passing of Paul’s father, the shop’s previous owner, in December. The award is something that they both worked hard to try and achieve. Tom says, “We’re very proud that he’s finally succeeded.”
