Gift The Taste of Home This Christmas

Christmas is a time for coming home, sitting round the fire with friends and family and enjoying the best of food, great company and celebrating the festive season together.

This year for everyone it will be a Christmas like no other – and unfortunately for some it will mean sacrifice and not being able to be with all of the people that we love.

Because of this, at James Whelan Butchers, we are finding more and more people this year are giving the gift of great food, which can be delivered straight to a loved one’s door throughout Ireland and the UK, right in time for Christmas, through our online store.

We are also finding that people who won’t be with their loved ones this year are sending them a slice of home by gifting a Heritage Cure Ham, which takes pride of place on so many Christmas dinner tables. Cured on the bone using an old family recipe, it is truly delicious, the ultimate taste of home.

Delicious food plays a central part in every family Christmas, and although the turkey tends to take the limelight, we passionately believe that our succulent ham, kissed with smoke and sweetness, juicy meat that melts in the mouth, will bring the festive feast together – even if we can’t be together with everyone we love this year.

This year our Heritage Ham took home two 3 Gold Star Great Taste Awards – and here is what the judges said about this wonderful product “The treatment is faultless. The rearing is clearly caring, reflected in the quality. The curing is light on salt and the sweet yet savory smoke beautifully balanced.”

Our Heritage Ham can be delivered nationwide and also to the UK and would make an ideal and very thoughtful gift for anyone who can’t get home this year for the holidays, by delivering a piece of home to them.


For Christmas you can choose – Whole Heritage Cure Ham or Easy Carve – either way – joy on a plate!
