History of Biltong; Biltong is a 400 year old traditional mildly spiced, salted and air dried meat product from South Africa. The word comes from Dutch with ‘BIL’ meaning buttock and ‘TONG’ meaning strip.
It has been produced and eaten for hundreds of years yet it is still enjoyed by many South Africans and remains very much a part of the county’s heritage.
Here at The Bootlegger, We produce our Biltong to authentic recipes, curing the meat in our own cabinets in view of all our customers.
Hand sliced, we provide wet, medium or dry Biltong from a selection of different cuts.
