The Vintage is proud of the local food heritage and producers in County Cork and the Duhallow region and where possible we use local producers to guarantee the freshest foods are used.
Our fish is delivered daily and is supplied by Star Seafoods. Star Seafood Ltd. was formed in 1974. It started as a small processing plant situated four miles from Kenmare and twenty miles from Castletownbere haven where their main supplies come from.
Mary Burns produces the award winning Ardrahan locally in Kanturk and here at The Vintage we take great pleasure in using it in our menus and recipes.
Ardrahan is a type of semi-soft cheese with a pungent aroma, Ardrahan cheese has buttery textured honey-coloured centre with a complex delicate flavour. It has a washed rind which grows into a golden colour, and its size and weight tend to vary slightly due to the fact that it is a hand-made product. www.ardrahancheese.ie
The Vintage use a high quality trusted local butcher for the majority of the meat served.
Cool Mountain Coffee is a wonderful blend with beans sourced from Columbia and Brazil. Medium Roast. Exceedingly smooth with flavors which develop on the palette. Produces an outstanding crema. www.coffeequip.ie
