We are forever on the hunt for interesting locally made and owned booze and booze-related parts/pieces. Matt & Michael's Melbourne Jerky is a highlight of our recent hunting, as it's delicious and a familiar story; they were initially hobbyists, but now they're trying to make a fist of taking their delicious hobby into the professional world. It's a yarn heard before in the brewing, distilling, and winemaking scene, so it was just a matter of time before a snack purveyor's voice joined that choir.
This one's made from MSA-Grade beef, thin cut (7mm) and firm in texture with a robust, umami-laden beefy flavour, spiced up by a healthy dose of Jalapeno. It is warm, but not hot, the flavour joy to heat ratio is just right here.
