"Main course-glossary"

Australian Wagyu beef
The Wagyu is a breed of cattle originally from Japan and the world's most expensive domestic cattle. Oakleigh Ranch's Wagyu beef - which stems from the Kobe breed - is raised in Eastern Australia in a natural environment with a strong emphasis on animal welfare. The end result is exceptional. It's famous for its uniquely distinctive marbling and rich, sweet, buttery taste. This tender delicacy is one of the world's juiciest. Oakleigh Ranch Wagyu beef comes minus any artificial additives, growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics. The natural, high-welfare breeding programme within the breed itself guarantees the meat's purity.

Label Rouge
Label Rouge is an official endorsement from France of the superior quality of food. It was created in 1965 at the instigation of French poultry producers who place greater emphasis on traditional, natural livestock farming. You can enjoy our breast of guinea fowl with a clear conscience.

Heritage Angus beef (CDN)
Canadian Heritage Angus Beef Heritage Angus Beef stems from cattle from the Canadian province of Alberta. These animals are raised by cows, kept purely for the young to suckle from, and are given no antibiotics or artificial hormones. They will never be kept in a cowshed at any time in their lives. Producers place huge emphasis on maximum sustainability - from rearing to shipping. The meat is exceptionally tender and full of taste.

Natural Irish beef
The meat from Irish pasture-fed oxen is particularly tender. Combined with Ireland's climate, the green pastures are the ideal habitat for the animals. Salty air, plenty of room to move about and a healthy diet guarantee the excellent, finely grained and attractively marbled quality of the meat.

We can offer a choice of fine brandies. Please ask our service team.


Lantenhammer brandies
Many of our brandies come from the famous Lantenhammer Distillery. Since it was founded in 1928, the distillery's headquarters have been in the Alps of Upper Bavaria. This well-known location for holidays is where the company produces its popular fruit brandies and liqueurs. The distillery is a family-run company that has been managed by the Stetter family for generations.

Lantenhammer products all stand apart for their high quality and exceptional aromas. The company ensures its products are all top quality by using traditional production methods. The Stetter family produces all fruit brandies and liqueurs by hand. This starts with the careful selection of the fruit used and continues with gentle and slow distilling. It ends with maturing the brandies, frequently over several years, in special clay kegs, or finally in rare SLYRS Bavarian Single Malt Whisky barrels for several months.
