The finest Scotch Beef
Hi and welcome back to this month’s blog,
I am glad to share with you a bit about my butcher, John Henderson. I buy a large portion of my supply from Henderson’s as I believe that they are one of the best around!
John Henderson Butchers were established in Kirkcaldy in 1934, by David Henderson. The business quickly built a reputation for quality beef, developing his shop as one of the busiest in Scotland, buying many supreme champion cattle at Agricultural shows including Smithfield. In 2000 the business relocated to purpose built premises in Glenrothes to concentrate on supplying catering establishments. By now the business had passed to the third generation, David and Andrew Smith who maintain their Grandfathers philosophy, buying quality meat and producing quality products. They are indeed traditional butchers, aging beef on the bone, but developing new cuts for the modern market. They buy only Scotch beef, the vast majority coming from the Highlands (Speyside and the Black Isle) and prefer traditional cattle fed on a natural diet and finished on pasture. In terms of breed they specify Angus cross Lomousin, Angus cross Hereford and Angus cross Charolais.
You will find this amazing Scotch beef in many of our dishes across the resort from our fine cuts in Sands Grill to the enourmous burger at the worlds most famous 19th – the Jigger Inn! If you do manage to finish a whole one, we’d love to see the before and after pics on twitter!
