  • Pure Irish butter

Product Description

Long before Kerrygold was ever heard of - in fact, as far back as written records go - dairying has played a starring role in Ireland. In the old days, Irishmen kept cattle for milk more than for meat, and status was derived from the bounty of your herd.

How did cows become the cornerstone of Irish wealth? Simple. Ireland was made for milk. It has everything you need to make a cow happy: good soil, a mild climate, moisture-bearing southwesterly winds, and all the green grass you can chew.

It didn't take long to figure out that happy cows produce amazing milk, which can then be churned into unbeatable butter. As early as the 17th century, Ireland was sharing its butter with the world. Irish boats were being met at the dock by salivating Swedes, Danes, Portuguese, Frenchmen, Spaniards and American colonists - just as Kerrygold butter is today.

The butter is so appealingly golden that it looks as though it has been colored, although the color is natural, coming from the beta-carotene in the intense green Irish grass consumed by the cows. Made in the style of all premium European butters, Kerrygold's higher fat content gives its butter a distinctive richness. The foil wrapper preserves freshness and premium quality.

  • All Kerrygold products are made using microbial rennet, making them suitable for vegetarians.

    I first tried this butter when I lived in Virginia. It's sold at Farm Fresh Supermarkets. The local bakery was sampling it with their fresh Irish soda bread. I'll say this much... that butter is amazing. Put it with Irish soda bread and it's simply divine. It's almost like eating cake, it's that good. The butter is so sweet and creamy, unlike American salty butters. It is pricey, but it's so very much worth it. I love putting it on my toast and I've gotten my friends addicted to it to. It's worth every delicious, mouth-watering bite.

    This is quite possibly the best butter ever. One of our local grocery stores USED to carry it but stopped for some reason. I don't think I'll ever forgive them. If you like butter, or consider yourself a butter snob, or just plain like keeping good-for-you food around and are tired of margarine, you need to get yourself some Kerrygold. You needed it a week ago and just didn't know it.

    I have cooked with and generally used real butter for years; I don't like the idea of synthetic margarines and oleos. However, if you buy Kerrygold butter and use it once, you'll never be contented with anything else. I didn't realize there could be SUCH a difference! It's pricey, but definitely worth it.

    When I was a child, we bought milk from a local dairy in 1 gallon glass jars. A single gallon would have 2-3 inches of cream. My grandmother made our butter out of this wonderful cream. Kerrygold tastes like that---awesome!

    this is one of the best butters you can get in the world. However, here the price is way to high, you can get it waaaay cheeper from Safeway 2 for 6 :)

    Two years ago, I stopped eating butter when I quit using dairy and other GMO products altogether. However, I needed butter recently for a specific recipe in which I couldn't substitute anything else. My health food grocer recommended this when I asked him if he carried any organic butter. It was expensive, but I've been paying more for organic foods in general, so I didn't mind. On opening the foil, I was surprised by Kerrygold's soft texture and vivid color...then I tasted it. Sheer heaven. When I was a Girl Scout, we churned cream into butter once, and that was the last time I experienced the flavor and texture of true butter (not to mention fresh buttermilk) until now. It, too, was soft and golden, not like pale, hard Land o' Lakes or other commercial butters. No more of those! As Tressalaea commented, Kerrygold turns bread into cake. It certainly does.

    When I was a kid, I visited a creamery in rural Iowa. I was fascinated by the butter making process and blown away by how good the butter (and the buttermilk) tasted when it was freshly made.

    The first time I had Kerrygold, I was also blown away by how good it was. It's the only thing that rivals the experience I had in my childhood. Now I am unsure whether the butter in Iowa was really as good as Kerrygold, or if my memory is clouded by the passage of time. One thing is certain. It's the only butter I can enjoy right now which rivals that experience.

    The product is perishable and expensive to purchase on Amazon, due to the extra care that must be given to the packaging. I'm sure there are circumstances that would warrant paying $19.99 to ship an 8 ounce container. If I was entering a baking contest in another state and didn't want to get my butter past airport security, for example.

    Fortunately, the product is popping up in many local stores. Maybe it's always been there and I didn't notice. It's especially prevalent around St Patrick's Day, where I saw huge displays at Costco and Kroger. I've also seen it at Trader Joe's and Safeway. If you can get it locally, it's definitely worth the extra cost, which is just slightly more than regular butter.

    When I got my first block of Kerrygold, I proudly presented it to my family, whose reaction was mostly "eh. It's just butter." So your mileage may vary. Nevertheless, since I started cooking with the stuff, we've never had even a spoonful of mashed potatoes left over.

    No other butter compares! I had been using a local pasteured butter and thought that was good. NOT after using Kerrygold! Creamy and Deliscious!
