We are very excited to announce our win for British Sausage Week, as the UK Supreme Sausage Champion with our Battle of Britain Memorial Sausages.
Here’s a few words from the man himself, Andrew Rook;
“I feel very lucky to have won again. Last year was amazing winning both the National Sausage Week Supreme Champion (Pork Bacon & Black Pudding) and Champion of Champions (Granddads Recipe Pork & Sage), something that despite my best hopes, I could only really dream of.
For this year’s event I plucked my inspiration from the air (literally) whilst walking across the white cliffs near Dover. A spitfire, with its exceptional and unique noise flew past. Immediately I thought of the last family day out we had as Dad, Mum Brother and Sister. I had arranged for my Dad’s 65th birthday to go up in a two seater Spitfire (Trainer) from Duxford Airfield. Sadly, a year later my sister succumbed to the dreadful big” C”. As part of our family recovery we planted an Oak tree as a Memorial to Her.
My thoughts then flitted to the Battle of Britain Memorial just along the Coast at Capel-Le-Ferne, and how important it was for so many families.
So, using our local Brewers, Shepherd Neame, Spitfire Ale and some Kentish hops almost like you would add a herb, I came up with the Battle of Britain Memorial Sausage.
But most importantly it is to be sold with 50p per pack going towards the Battle of Britain Memorial.
It gives us all at J.C. Rook & Sons a real feel good factor on top of the joy of success.
I have a great team of people working with me to develop and produce the sausages, and I feel, as this is such an iconic part of World War II history, that our loyal Customers will support our bid to give a truly generous donation to the Memorial.”
Try our Battle of Britain Memorial Sausages and let us know what you think! Don’t forget 50p per lb will be going towards the Battle of Britain Memorial.
