Breagagh Valley Artisan Meats was founded in 2013 as a small independent Kilkenny based company specialising in artisan meat production. Our founder and owner, George Navratil, studied Meat Technology and Meat Processing in Prague, in the Czech republic. George is passionate about charcuterie, he loves making sausages and other meat delicatessen products. While producing them he uses some old and tried recipes and he is also not afraid to try out his own new ideas. Our shop is little bit different from other butcher shops as we produce a top quality charcuterie. We have fitted a fully automatic smoker in the workshop and we specialise in production of smoked sausages, salamis, hams etc. Our products are totally natural without any artificial additives and have a high meat content. All our products are of highest quality, using only locally sourced meat, and the sausages are filled in natural casings. Our products are also gluten free.
Butterslip opened in 2005, full of colourful ideas and wild notions, the result of much day dreaming, notebook scribling, scrapbook filling and finally one great flight of madness. The scribbler, day dreamer and committed pritt sticker here is me, Anne, still often to be found doodling and daydreaming – these days I just try and make it look more productive. The name is taken from Butterslip Lane in Kilkenny, one of the city’s many curious and charming side streets, and where we first opened the eponymous shop (there was a very nice party, complete with a clown, cakes, lots of balloons and liquorice allsorts). In early 2007, Butterslip moved, but kept the lovely name, to a bright and sunny corner of Rose Inn Street where we still reside, along with our notions.
