The pork-and-mustard banger from Robert Watson, of Watsons of Leven, lifted the top honours in Scotland’s new Craft Butcher Premium Sausage Awards, supported by Quality Meat Scotland.

Mr Watson, whose father Robert farms at Croft Garry and Kirkton farms, Auchtertool, established his butcher’s business in 1990 and has a team of eight staff.


The award judges had previously sampled more than 100 of the country’s finest sausages in the course of finding the winning entry, which was revealed on the QMS stand on the opening day of the Royal Highland Show in June.

A survey by QMS revealed that 92% of butchers’ shops experienced increased footfall in February following the media coverage of the horsemeat issue. A separate survey taken in June revealed that the majority of Scottish butchers are positive about how their businesses will perform over the next 12 months.
