Award Winning Butchers
2015 Butcher Pride competition – Top prize – Pat on the back!!!
We have immense pleasure in announcing that not only did our Lincolnshire Pork Sausages win yet another Gold award at the 2015 Butchers Pride Competition but we were awarded Top Prize of Overall Best Sausage!! We are delighted with this award as it confirms what all or our loyal customers have been saying for years – that out traditional sausages are the best in town!!
This year there was a record entry of 30 different sausages entered into the competition which covered butchers from Boston, South Holland and the Deepings.
The excerpt below is from the Spalding Guardian Newspaper.
‘’MP… John Hayes said: ‘’I designed this competition to boost local businesses ans back Lincolnshire sausage makers…Sausages are a source of immense pride to those who make them and enjoy them…I’m certainly among those who enjoy eating them!”
The coveted gold awards went to Trevor Sharpe for his black pepper speciality sausage and to Bycroft’s of Boston for their Lincolnshire sausage.
However, it was Bycroft’s with the highest overall points score who won the cut glass trophy donated by Mr Hayes, taking it to Boston for the first time in the competition’s four years.”
In 2018 the Eighth Butcher’s pride sausage competition, organised by Boston College: sausages are ‘blind tested’ by a group of six judges and marked for appearance and smell, texture, taste, and seasoning and flavour.
Although a Spalding butcher scooped the overall prize by just one point on Friday for their pork and stiton sausage. They had won the specialist sausage category, with Bycrofts of Boston and Trevor Sharpe of Gosberton tying for the Lincolnshire sausage award. The highest overall score from both categories wins the coveted Butcher’s Pride trophy.
