Cooking Tips: Wild Scottish grouse has very strong game taste and takes assertive flavors and seasonings well, like juniper berries, wine, and wild mushrooms. Barding the birds with thinly sliced bacon or rubbing them with fat before cooking will help keep the birds moist. Bread sauce and berry compotes are classic accompaniments.

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 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. The birds are packaged and sent by air to arrive at our warehouse within just two days of the hunt.
