Jack O'Shea - Jack O'Shea's Butcher
"The lamb has a wonderful flavour, which impresses everyone who tries it including some of the top chefs in London. It is the only lamb that we’ve used since we opened the shop and I am consistently impressed with the quality of the product. At the high end of the market, what you’re selling has to be first class."
Sue Lawrence - Masterchef
"For me, Shetland lamb has always been a rare treat, with its distinctive flavour, enhanced by that very special diet. In my opinion, Shetland lamb encompasses all that is important: it's naturally lean, healthy, is a quality product and, of course, the flavour is outstanding. It is delicate and slightly sweet from grazing on heather grassland rich with wild flowers and herbs."
David Young - Proprietor of The Cross at Kinguissie
"We began using Shetland lamb at The Cross in 2004. We have been highly impressed by the consitency of quality, texture and tenderness, and above all, the unique flavour of lamb raised by the sea. Customer feedback has been extremely positive and many diners have told us that the lamb is the best they have ever tasted."
Laurent Vernet - Marketing Manager, Quality Meat Scotland
