Introducing... Badachro Gin

We’ve always been advocates for championing Scottish produce at The Butchershop, and when our friends at the newly launched Badachro distillery presented us with a very special bottle from their new gin, we couldn’t help but talk about it!

Created in the small town of Badacharo, in the Scottish Highlands. Gordon & Vanessa Quinn both educated themselves on the art of distilling whilst getting experience in other distilleries before finally opening their own in June this year.

The couple have created this awesome new gin using only locally foraged ingredients, with the caveat that they will only use what they can see from the window of the distillery! Combining traditional botanicals with gorse blossom, bog myrtle & other hand-picked botanicals from around Badachro, they’ve managed to create something special, unique and unequivocally Scottish by nature.

We are proud owners of the 4th bottle ever created & in the photo below you will see this bottle with a rare ‘test batch’ label. Recently they created a colourful new label that depicts the purity of the land, mountains and water around Badachro, the clarity of the sky and the copper of the still, Delilah.

According to the team at Badachro, the best way to enjoy this Scottish gin is; With either a slice of orange, a handful of crushed blueberries, or strawberries and a vanilla pod.

It is still very early stages for the distillery however there are already two other types of gin being created in time for winter, including a classic Sloe Gin along with a Blackcurrant gin. Alongside this, they also plan on releasing their own rum brand. Watch this space!

Visit Scotland & the Butchershop Host Shetland Vikings.

Last week, a group of Shetland Vikings end up in Glasgow in a quest for the most awesome steak in town for lunch...

Of course, they headed to us here at the Butchershop Bar & Grill, where we welcome the most interesting and exciting people on a daily basis!

They joined us ahead of the Follow the Vikings Festival this September, which will be held to celebrate Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology. Held over two weekends, the festival is due to take place in Unst, Britain’s most northerly island and one of the Vikings first landing places in the North Atlantic and in Lerwick, Shetland’s capital.

A huge thanks to Visit Scotland for getting us involved in such an exciting project and as for the Vikings, we hope to see you back very soon....

ROLLS FOR THE ROAD

For the second year running, The Butchershop Bar & Grill were ready and waiting to support the awesome Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund. Firm believers that you should never set off on a trip with an empty stomach, The Butchershop team prepared 300 breakfast rolls to ensure that none of the drivers, children, parents or carers were starvin’ by the time they got to Troon.

Glasgow Taxis have been putting smiles on children’s faces since 1945, by annually sending Taxis To Troon to provide an unforgettable day out, with 2017 marking the 72nd instalment of the event! 

Lead by RUSK & RUSK co-owners James and Louise Rusk, Team Butchershop handed out bacon, sausage and tattie scone rolls to the hundreds of attendees along Kelvin Way! Our awesome suppliers at Cairnhill farms donated the sausage and bacon for the event, which was much appreciated by everyone from the kids to the drivers themselves. The team strived to get the rolls to as many people as possible, even if that meant throwing them to the top of one of the buses!

Setting off from just across the road, Glasgow Taxis organise this tremendous event every year to the delight of the city. The spectacle of the decorated taxis and the dressed-up drivers truly is a sight to behold, and The Butchershop feels proud to be part of the ongoing tradition. We love to be involved and are hopeful that the gesture made the day that extra bit awesome for everyone.

What is a Tomahawk Steak?

One of our colossal Cuts On The Bone, this cut is so kick-ass, it’s named after a deadly weapon. Our 45 day dry aged TOMAHAWK steaks are a rite of passage for any true meat aficionado. Aged, cooked and served with an entire, half-meter long rib bone, the meat is packed with the most intense beefy punch of any cut you’re likely to try and, of course, comes with that added ‘wow-factor’ you only get with this Flintstone-esq cut! An ideal sharing steak for a special occasion or the ultimate indulgence for an ambitious one.
