THE Clonakilty Food Company has recently launched new blackpudding sausages, combining two of their best-loved products – the traditional flavour of their popular Clonakilty Sausages mixed with the unmistakable texture and flavour of the famous Clonakilty Blackpudding.
The receipe was first created in the 1880s at Edward Twomey’s butcher shop at 16 Pearse Street Clonakilty. Today, the Twomey’s continue to develop new recipes combining traditions of the past with innovations of today.
These tasty Irish sausages are very versatile and can be enjoyed on their own, with a salad for a light bite, with mash and gravy for a hearty dinner, or as part of a full Irish breakfast. They can be grilled, pan-fried or even barbequed.
The Clonakilty Blackpudding Sausages are available in 75 Tesco stores, a range of independent shops nationwide and will be in leading Irish retailers in the months ahead. Colette Twomey, co-founder of Clonakilty and sole guardian of the secret spice reicipe for Clonakilty Blackpudding said, ‘We are very excited to launch our new Clonakilty Blackpudding Sausages. The combination of our Clonakilty sausage and blackpudding come together to create an all new taste experience which I hope you will enjoy.
‘Over the years we have continued to develop new products, including whitepudding, sausages and rashers and bacon. The blackpudding sausage is the first in our exciting new Butcher Shop Recipe range and we looking forward to launching other new products in the future.
‘My family and I are incredibly proud of the history of our company, and we wish to continue to bring you quality new Irish products for generations to come,’ added Colette.
Clonakilty began as a small local business in the West Cork town. Today, it has grown into an internationally-recognised food brand, whose product range includes its original blackpudding, whitepudding, sausages, rashers, bacon and a gluten free range.
