Maturation is a natural process that ages the meat. Its aim is to perfect the taste and tenderness of the cut. The rigorous selection of quality meats is of utmost importance in ensuring that you enjoy the best culinary experience possible. In incredibly precise conditions (think temperature, humidity, etc.), the muscle of the animal slowly becomes meat: the flesh turns tender, the aromas pique the senses. It’s magical
Meat can be matured, or aged, for up to 16 weeks. However, a 4-week maturation process can be enough. It all depends on the potential of the piece of meat.
Colonel offers exclusive Prime Cuts from its butcher's counter, all aged for around 6 weeks.
“Ageing a meat is like ageing a wine. With top quality material, the product will be nothing short of divine.”
