Kerrygold is very good as far as I can tell (and tastes great). As far as I know it is 100% (with some salt added if you buy the salted version - we have salted and unsalted in the US. I am not sure if that is the case in the UK). Here is their faq page where it talks about how the cows are fed etc: FAQ - Kerrygold USA Cheese & Butter

Edit: Oh, and I am speaking of the Kerrygold 100% pure butter. Apparently on the website there is a 'spreadable' version in a tub and a 'ligher' version. I have no idea if they are any different than the block of butter I usually buy as I have never seen them sold here in my small town.
