The art of smoking salmon at Loch Fyne lies in the experienced expertise and selection of only the finest ingredients. The freshly filleted salmon is dry-cured, given the time it needs, before being gently smoked over oakwood chips, from retired whisky casks. The result is a traditional style Scottish smoked salmon, delicately cured with a firm texture. Loch Fyne offers a variety of Scottish smoked salmon products, ranging from the traditional classic flavour to citrus and whisky marinated sides and packs. All recipes are well preserved secrets, but suffice to say, the whisky used is for the whisky marinated sides is a Glengoyne 21 year old Single Malt!
The top of the range product is however the equisite Kinglas Fillet; the centre cut taken from the crown of a Smoked Salmon ‘classic’ fillet.
Simply the finest!
