Gourmet Sausages handmade in Vienna

I am originally from Colchester, Essex, which is about 1 hour away from London. I have now been living in Vienna for almost 10 years doing a variety of jobs up until very recently when I decided to take the plundge with Britwurst.

It all started 4 years ago as a hobby and has now taken over my life. Britwurst was founded on the basis to introduce a new type of sausage, in a heavily meat dependant country. To show that there is much more to sausage than your typical Bratwurst.

I am creating different flavours from a basic breakfast sausage to an exotic Thai style sausage. I am always open to suggestions to new flavours and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

After the initial struggles of setting up the business (something which was completely unexpected due to how straightforward things are in the UK) almost 1 year later of officially setting up Britwurst I now find the business growing and growing.

In co-operation with Fleischerei Hödl I am using fully traceable meat which is coming straight from Tullnerfeld, in Niederösterreich. The majority of the ingredients used within my produce are also coming from within a 60 mile radius of Vienna. I believe that local produce tastes a lot better, and I am trying to cut my carbon footprint in any way possible.

It’s not always about the sausages here at Britwurst either. I am also producing proper English style bacon, both back and streaky (Bauch & Karree) and future plans for other products are currently in full swing.
