No dragon sausage without dragon

22-11-2006 | |

The Welsh Dragon Sausage has to look out for a different name as this sausage speciality does not contain any dragon meat.

The product name, a brand by Black Mountains Smokery, does not really tell what is its origin, Welsh authorities claim – having announced to go to court. In reality the extra spicy sausage is made of pork and chilli peppers.

The name is derived from Welsh heraldry as the nation’s symbol is a red dragon.

Draconic decision

The British media said the decision was rather draconic. Its producer claims no-one had ever really complained about the dragon meat missing and called it ‘bureaucracy gone mad’.

In the future, the addition ‘pork sausage’ is likely to be added to the name.
