Kerrygold Unsalted Irish Butter is here to help make your recipes even better.

Is there anything tastier than Irish butter? We don't think so. Think freshly steamed new potatoes or a slice of toast smothered in your favourite butter - there really isn't anything better. 

While the classic Kerrygold is a complete winner, sometimes you might need a version with less salt: enter Kerrygold Unsalted. Made with the exact same care as the Kerrygold you know and love, Kerrygold Unsalted Butter has a rich, creamy texture with a distinctly delicate flavour. Perfect for baking, this butter is made with milk from Irish grass-fed cows and churned to perfection. 

Unsalted butter is commonly called for in baking recipes as it allows bakers to add as much or as little salt to a recipe as they like, resulting in perfectly precise dishes usually only created by professionals.
