Winter Tarn Dairy to launch mini butter portions
Family owned and run Winter Tarn Dairy, based in Cumbria, is set to launch individual portions of their award winning salted and unsalted butter in handy foodservice 10g portions.
The new butter portions will be launched at the hospitality sector’s leading event, The Restaurant Show, at Olympia, London, between 27-28 September, on stand GB30 and at the food and drink sector’s leading event hosted by the Guild of Fine Food, Fine Food North, at the Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate, between 17-18 October, on stand F9.
The new foil wrapped butter portions will be available in packs of 100 direct from the dairy or through a number of carefully selected wholesalers.
Winter Tarn Dairy butter is made with great care in small batches using only the finest, fresh local dairy cream, all of which is sourced from a number of carefully selected small herd dairy farms in the Northwest of England.
Once the cream arrives at the dairy the team begin a hands on process to craft their small batch artisan butters. During this process the cream is ripened and aged, before being carefully crystalised to ensure that we can create the highest quality butter. After which it is then gently warmed to ensure a low moisture level and higher fat content. Once it reaches the correct temperature the cream is slowly churned in 100 litre batches. Once the cream begins to reach the ‘crumb’ stage the buttermilk is rinsed off until the water runs clear.
The resulting ‘crumb’ is then salted to enhance the flavour and help preserve the butter, once salted it is churned again to remove any excess water. Once the butter has been fully brought together it is then moulded, packed and labelled by hand. This exacting process means that we are able to craft truly delicious handmade award-winning artisan butter – made in the way that butter should be made.
The Winter Tarn Dairy range now includes salted and unsalted butter in handy foodservice packs of 100 individually wrapped 10g portions, which is ideal for cafes, bistros and restaurants who want to make a good first impression with their customers.
The Dairy also crafts 200g rolls, which are just the thing for use in the home and 1kg catering blocks, which are ideal for use in a whole host of commercial kitchens including cafes, bistros and restaurants.
