Dorset Chorizo

Free-range pork is cured and flavoured with smoked the finest Spanish smoked Pimento de la Vera paprika (PDO), sweet Ancho chilli from Mexico, Spanish Purple Garlic, and a little cayenne pepper for heat.  This chorizo is described as ‘medium’ heat.  The sausages are filled into natural hog casings before being fermented and air-dried.

Winner of 3 Stars at the Great Taste Awards 2019. The judges said “There is a fine look to this chorizo and an even finer flavour.  The flavour builds with a warmth that opens up well giving one a hug rather than a slap.  The texture gives a great eat.  Well balanced and splendid”
