PRLog - Aug. 2, 2012 - Great Glen Game’s Venison Chorizo, Venison Chilli Chorizo and Mustard Venison Salami  have each been presented with a coveted gold star Great Taste Award.

Great Glen Game is based in the Highlands of Scotland. It was established in 2003 by Jan Jacob Baak. He started producing smoked venison made with prime cuts of local wild venison and over the years has developed new innovative products such as Chorizo, Pepperoni, Salami and a Bresaola all made with sustainably sourced local wild venison.  Their products are sold in delicatessens across the UK including Fortnum and Masons, Wholefoods, The House of Bruar and used by Michelin starred chefs.  With its lean meat, low cholesterol and low calorie, the wild venison products are proving very popular by customers and chefs and fit into a healthy lifestyle.

Jan Jacob Baak, owner of Great Glen Game said : “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this award and to be among the country's most highly rated food producers. This is the third year in a row we have won Gold Stars and it is a great recognition for the quality and taste of our products.
We have had a very successful year already with lots of new independent retailers stocking our products and winning the Great Taste Awards will hopefully encourage even more retailers to stock our Charcuterie and increase our sales."

The Great Taste Awards organised by the Guild of Fine Food has gained widespread recognition among the country's retailers and consumers and all entries undergo rigorous tests by a specially selected panel of experts, including leading chefs, buyers, food critics and deli owners.

Judges this year included Masterchef winner and restaurateur Mat Follas, restaurant critic and Masterchef judge Charles Campion, food writers Lucas Hollweg and Xanthe Clay and over 300 food buyers from leading food halls, delicatessens and farm shops, including Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.
Guild of Fine Food chairman Bob Farrand said that each of the food and drink products entered into Great Taste undergoes the most rigorous scrutiny.
