Two Golds for Clinton Venison in 2013 Taste of the West Awards

Clinton Venison is proud to have received two gold awards in this year’s prestigious Taste of the West Awards – for our locally produced venison sausages and for our loin fillet.

The brand was established in 2007 after our Estate Ranger Tom Garner identified a local market for the high quality wild venison from Clinton Devon Estates land in East Devon.

After successfully completing a butchery course, Tom began producing packs of roasting joints, fillet steak and casserole meat, along with home made sausages and burgers which are sold at Budleigh Salterton Farmers’ Market on the last Friday of every month. 

Clinton Venison travels only six miles from Estate to plate, keeping carbon emissions to a minimum, supporting our rural economy and ensuring the food is as fresh and as tasty as possible.

Taste of the West www.tasteofthewest.co.uk was established in 1991 and is recognised as the leading food and drink organisation for the South West region. Each year the finest food and drink products are recognised with gold, silver or bronze awards.  The awards ceremony will take place on October 15th.
