BUCKFAST sausages are flying off the shelves in a Perthshire, Scotland butchers, with more than 30 kilos being sold since Friday.
Beaton Lindsay, who owns Lindsay Butchers in Perth, took up the task of making the tonic wine-flavoured bangers after being challenged by a chef.
After mashing together a batch with apprentice Shaun Kay, the pair believed they had struck gold when tasking the treats – which they have named “Buckey Bangers”.
Mr Lindsay said: “It was the chef at the Queens Hotel who asked if I could make them and I went about it just for a giggle.
“I would never actually drink Buckfast, I had it once and thought “this is minging”, but when you put it in sausages they are absolutely cracking.
“I can’t explain what they taste like, they’re just lovely.”
Would you try them?
