Purveyors of true taste

Taste. We’re obsessed by it. Taking the most mouth-watering, fresh Salmon and Trout, smoking it with the finest beechwood chips to draw out the delicate flavours that are hidden within. Exploring how we can create something unique and desirable for those who seek the fineries of taste. This is, and has always been, our passion. To be different, to be the obvious choice for the decerning. To surprise. To infuse delicately with fragrant gin and to embellish with finest malt whisky. These are just some of the delicate touches that make our smoked salmon and trout an experience that leaves you wanting more. We have challenged ourselves to become the purveyors of taste and seek it in everything we do. Blakewell Smoked Salmon and Trout.
