A Perfect Partnership – Christmas & Great Food!

Over two years ago we announced a very special partnership with Peter Hannan of Hannan’s Meats, launching our Himalayan Salt Aged Beef, exclusive to James Whelan Butchers.

Peter and Pat both come from very traditional Irish farming backgrounds. Both have an incredible expertise and a deep appreciation for the raw materials. It is this quality of craft and scrupulous sourcing that saw both businesses win Supreme Champion at The Great Taste Awards, each winning a coveted Golden Fork Award against stiff international competition, and each now achieving international recognition with their products stocked in places such as Fortnum & Masons and Harrods.

Since we introduced these stunning products, our customers and friends have fallen in love with the uniqueness of the product, which is attributed to the ageing process in Peter’s Salt Chamber which contains a 12ft solid wall of Himalayan Rock Salt Bricks.

The resulting beef has to be tasted to be understood, it is not just a question of texture or flavour, but a subtle interplay of multiple elements, the reason why it is in such demand.

For Christmas 2020 we are launching a collection of Salt Aged Hampers, especially for the meat connoisseur featuring a variety of exceptional cuts of meat including Salt Aged Cote de Boeuf, Sharing T-bone Steak, Fillet Steak and new to James Whelan Butchers, Salt Aged 8 bone Rack of Lamb and Hannon’s famous and much sought after Sugar Pit Bacon Rack.


There are four hampers in the collection, The Works, featuring every Salt Aged Cut imaginable including the lesser known Guanciale, which is full of flavour and goodness. This hamper is for perfect Christmas gift for that really special client, friend or colleague who you know appreciates really great food – and who you would like to give the gift of an unforgettable Christmas present.


The Salt Aged Variety Box, which is a selection of our favourite cuts is another perfect Corporate Christmas gift – and guaranteed to give the receiver lots of memorable Christmas meals and well into the New Year.


Our Salt Aged Steak Box – is exactly what it says on the box! Packed full of Salt Aged Beef Steaks including T Bone, Sirloin, the much loved Rib Eye and the lesser known Picanha. Every single piece will be a joy to cook and enjoy! Christmas gifting at it’s very best!


Last but by no means least is our Salt Aged Rack Box. A collection of mouthwatering sharing racks of meat. This Christmas may be different to all others, but it will still involve sharing great food with loved ones and this collection is perfect for just that.

All of these wonderful Hampers are available to order through our online shop and delivered straight to your door or to the door of that special person that you want to give the gift of great meat to. They are all also available as part of our Christmas Delivery, which will be delivered right on time for Christmas on the 23rd December.
