Annascaul Black Pudding Co.


Annascaul Black Pudding Co. is an artisan food production business run by Thomas and Eileen Ashe. Our ethos is to provide a high quality range of products to our customers. We use local and Irish ingredients as much as possible. Today, customers are expecially interested in the provenance & history of their food. We offer both. 

At Annascaul Black Pudding Co., we produce fresh blood black pudding which has been made to the same recipe here in Annascaul since 1916. We are the third generation to continue this tradition. Over the years, we have added white pudding, a traditional pork sausage, sausage rolls and dry cured tradtional, smoked and streaky rashers. Using local and Irish ingredients is very important to us both from a quality and traceability perspective and also in supporting other Irish businesses. Production is at our dedicated production unit in Annascaul. All products are hand-made with care by our team thereby guaranteeing the provenance of each product and also contributing to the local community in many ways. 

"There is no finer pudding made either in Kerry or Ireland today. A superb, extremely rare and precious artisan Irish food." 

"The resonance is so deep partly because of the pudding's vaunted history - it was first produced in 1916 and has been crafted by three generations of the family. But it's also partly because Thomas continues to make Annascaul pudding in the traditional Kerry style - cake-baked, made with fresh blood according to the original recipe. There are few other foods that can claim such ancestry and distinction in Ireland" - McKenna's Guides.
