Winner of the 2022 Taste of the West Champion Charcuterie.
The Judges said
“The artisan characteristics of this product are abundantly evident before you open the packet. The fat and lean complement each other perfectly and flavours reveal themselves like a blooming flower - every second or so another taste showed itself. A fantastic product in a now-populous field of South Western charcuterie skills”.
Pork neck fillet from free-range pigs from the West Country is dry cured with a blend of herbs and spices and then air dried for many weeks. Serve as part of a mixed plate of charcuterie for a superb starter or eat as you would a Parma ham with fresh figs or melon.

The judges said of this product
- A good looking cut with a ruby red colour and buttery fat. The flavour carries a beautiful richness and as the pork melts on the palate we are left with a wonderful creamy, herby mouthful. Very rich and well made. CHARCUTERIE AT ITS BEST
- Brilliant aromas, with gentle spice melding with mature pork notes. The delightful marbling ensures succulence - this slips down ridiculously easily. A very skillfully seasoned and cured coppa, utterly delightful.
- Beautifully marbled coppa with tremendous depth of flavour - soft, peppery and sweet. Just melts in the mouth.
