    From weekend estate hunts in Scotland, these plump-bodied little birds have a characteristically lean, mildly-flavored and tender pale meat.

    Additional Information

    Enjoy the rich flavors of Scottish game without any of the hassle of the hunt. Our red-legged partridge are procured in private weekend estate hunts organized exclusively for D'Artagnan, just like the rest of our truly wild game.

    If you are nervous about trying wild game birds, the red-legged partridge is the one for you. Of all our game birds, partridge has the mildest, least gamey flavor. A natural diet of heather and tundra imbues their pale, mild meat with grassy notes, but it lacks that musky flavor often associated with game meat.

    The red-legged partridge is a popular game bird that is numerous in northern England and parts of Scotland. But we can only get it during hunting season, so strike while you have the opportunity.

    Our wild Scottish game is procured at private weekend estate hunts organized exclusively for D'Artagnan during hunting season.

    The wild birds live on game preserves and great estates in the Scotland, where they forage on the moors and in the forests. Their diet of berries, heather and foraged tundra, along with constant exercise, gives their meat a distinctive flavor.

    After the hunt, the birds are immediately processed in a facility supervised by European Economic Community Inspectors. The EEC inspection satisfies the USDA laws, so we are able to offer game birds despite the prohibition on selling hunted game in the United States. Packaged and sent by air to arrive at our warehouse within just two days of the hunt, this is the freshest possible game you will find (unless you hunt it yourself).

    Our wild game birds are available in the fall and winter months only, and many game meat aficionados wait with increasing excitement for hunting season to begin. We do have to warn you to watch for shot when preparing and eating wild game birds.

    Red-legged partridge can be simply and quickly roasted. Don't overcook and dry out this game meat; serve it pink and juicy. A pan sauce with the drippings will go nicely with partridge and any accompaniments such as autumn vegetables, cabbage or fried potatoes. Bacon and chestnuts, wild mushrooms, porcini powder and foie gras are all flavors that play well with partridge.

    Our Scottish Game Birds

    We are the original source in the United States for truly wild game birds. Ours are procured fresh from game preserves and great estates in Scotland during hunting season. Living on heather, berries and tundra forage, our game birds offer an authentic taste of place, known as terroir in wine terms.
