Our sausages are sold in packs of 500g where you will receive approximately 5 or 6 sausages (10 for chipolatas) and 10-12 sausages and 20-24 chipolatas in our 1kg packs. Because we hand-make our sausages and link them in the traditional way pack sizes may vary slightly. Minimum pack size 475g
All of our sausages are made with the best cuts of pork to attain the perfect balance of succulence and flavour. Made in the traditional way using decades of experience the best ingredients and only natural casings. Sausages are versatile and can be used as the main event on most plates.
Our back bacon is packaged in 250g packs this equates to about 5 slices, but could vary as not all pigs are built equal. Minimum pack weight is 225g. if you prefer thicker or thinner slices, please tell via our contact page. Your feedback is always greatly appreciated and helps us to shape our business for the future.
Our bacon is made in the traditional way, by this we mean that there is no added water, in fact the curing process pulls moisture out of the meat. Modern curing methods involve pumping the pork full of salty water, you see most of this when you put your bacon in the frying pan and you notice the liquid that comes out of it, liquid that you´ve paid for.
Firstly, we´re sorry for being mysterious! It´s not very easy to pronounce in Spanish either, oops! But we are very sure of who we are and there was never any other choice of name for us. Dyed in the wool Britanicos will instantly associate Henry Hoggs with all things pig (we hope!) However, here is the real reason we trade as Henry Hoggs – Superb Sausages and Beautiful Bacon. Simon and his Dad before him were both traditional butchers, experts in hand-made sausages and they both had Henry as their middle name – after Simon´s paternal grandfather, George Henry Wilkinson. Henry always goes in the middle – boom. Hogs are big, juicy male pigs. Hog-Roasts are famous BBQ´d pigs in the US and the UK and you can also think of rebel pigs on ´hog´ motorbikes. Growing-up, Simon was always involved with the set-up, running and production of best quality fresh meat businesses – and his ever-so generous best friends (who still form the permanent tasting committee for new sausage recipes) have always affectionately called him “Hoggy.” So there you have it, the very family, personal and fun origins of our company name.

Simon is a second-generation skilled butcher (Smithfield College, London) whose passion for sausages, knowledge of all things meat and love for cooking is only equivalent to his joy for his life here in Spain with his family. Having owned a traditional family butchers in Devon for over 40 years, Simon and his father Derrick´s reputation for fresh quality and local sausages was excellent. Loyal customers came back time and again from as far away as London, for Wilkinsons´ Sausages. Receiving and acting-on constant customer feedback inspired and motivated Simon to always deliver the best possible product to customers and to go above and beyond when offering a food service. Having been in Spain for more than 6 years now with his wife and daughter, it was that cry for and desire for an authentic British type of sausage and excellent service that told Simon customers needed him again. A lot of people say they have a passion for food. In the main this refers to the eating of it.
If you want someone from Spain to understand your passion for good, artisan food – go find a Basque, especially when that persons´ family have owned pig farms are involved with Matanza. Nestor is the father of 2 young boys whose immediate reaction to fresh British pork sausages was to set-up a sausage company with Simon. When Nestor took English lessons from Simon, he got a lot more than he bargained for. “Everyone needs to try these.” Nestor´s background in project management makes him the perfect navigator of this culinary odyssey (and chief sausage tester!) Nestor connects Henry Hoggs to Spain ensuring the synergy of traditional English butchery and Spanish culture. Henry Hoggs sausages are an amazing food, especially with a cold caña.
