Give the Gift of Award Winning Beef this Christmas with a Beef Bond from James Whelan Butchers from €100



Christmas is a time of giving, but sometimes the perfect gift can be hard to find. This year, award winning artisan producer James Whelan Butchers has something a little different, “Beef Bonds” – an innovative approach to Corporate gifting or for the food lover in your family or circle of friends.


Exclusive Christmas offer from James Whelan Butchers and TheTaste: Angus and Hereford bond priced at €100 each, or the more exclusive Wagyu bond priced at €150 each. 


Beef Bonds, are an investment in great food and a clever way to own a share of one of James Whelan Butchers acclaimed Hereford, Angus or Wagyu Cattle, who graze all year round in the rolling hills of Tipperary on their family farm.


The bond is a guaranteed return, each animal is divided among a fixed number of bond holders who have an underwritten return on their investment – a predicted weight which is established at time of purchase. If the animal exceeds this weight the bondholders share the extra bounty. The Bonds generally mature within 14 to 22 weeks of purchase, but shorter term bonds are available on request.


Each bondholder will receive a beautiful gift certificate as their guarantee, referencing the details of the animal it is linked to. On maturity, a variety box of beautiful cuts of meat such as delicious roasts and succulent steaks is prepared by James Whelan’s artisan craft butchers and delivered to the bondholder, anywhere in Ireland or the UK.


Speaking about the ‘Beef Bonds’, Pat Whelan of James Whelan Butchers said, ”The ‘Beef Bond’ is so much more than just a gift, it’s a real connection to our heritage of great food in Ireland and the people that produce it. The bond builds trust between butcher and customer.”



Beef Bonds – What you’ll get:

5lbs Selection of Roasts Joints
3lbs of a Selection of Steaks Cuts
3lbs of a Selection of Braise/Slow Cook Cuts
2lbs of a Selection of Steak Mince & Steak Burgers
