Chilled Delivery Guarantee
With our no quibble guarantee we will refund or replace any products that don't arrive with you in perfect condition.
Please allow up to 3-5 business days for delivery at the moment as everything is being made fresh to order to keep up with demand (June 2022) We make our smoked salmon fresh each week. Most smaller pack sizes (100g and 200g) we hold some stock of and will despatch as quick as possible which is the same for our Taster and Gift packs. For larger sizes (half and whole sides) we will slice these in the week and deliver on the coming Friday (e.g order Tuesday morning, will be with you Friday) If you need it more quickly, please pop us an email (we're very friendly) and we'll do our best to get it out to you sooner, or offer the same weight in smaller pack sizes. If you're not sure, don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any special requirements or need to hold delivery until a later date, please state these in the notes section in the cart or at checkout.
Northern Ireland, Highlands and Islands
We sadly can no longer offer delivery to Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Due to the nature of our products we are unable to reliably ship goods to these places in a timely and safe manner whereby they are still chilled on arrival. We have been getting a lot of lost and late parcels and a lot of wastage.
For existing customers in these locations, please get in touch and we can advise on the costs of Royal Mail special delivery to your location.
How does my smoked salmon get delivered?
Your order will be packaged in insulated packaging filled with ice packs which are tested to keep the products chilled for up to 48 hours. We use DPD to transport the products on an overnight service, so the product should always arrive chilled as though it had been in a fridge. The insulated packaging is either compostable, re-usable or recyclable.
Do I need to be home when it is delivered?
If you're not home we ask the courier to leave the package either with a neighbour or in a safe place. It is always preferable to have someone around to sign for the delivery though, so an address where someone is available (home or work) would help.
How much does delivery cost?
Delivery free when you spend £50, or below that £5.95 and is applied at checkout, and is based on your cart total after any discounts.
Where is the salmon from?
We source our salmon through Billingsgate fish market, selecting only the freshest Scottish salmon from farms with a focus on responsible farming. We use wild salmon by special order only, please sign up to our emails to hear when this is possible.
What is the use by date?
All our cold smoked salmon and trout is packaged with a minimum of 23 days shelf life. The only exception is our hot smoked salmon and paté which has a shorter use by date - 14 days. We will never send out any packs of smoked salmon with less than 5 days remaining on its use by date, or pâté with less than 3 days remaining.
Can you freeze it?
Yes, all our products are suitable for freezing. Please freeze on day of arrival.
I have a discount code - where do I use it?
There is a small box in the cart section where you review your order that asks for your discount code. Please enter it here and the discount will be automatically applied.
How much should I buy per person?
We recommend 50g per person as a portion. Really love smoked salmon? Double it!
Do you do wholesale?
Yes indeed - we include some of the finest food-halls in the land as stockists. If you'd like to join them please get in touch here
We source our fresh Scottish farmed salmon via Billingsgate fish market. Wherever possible we choose RSPCA assured Scottish farms*, with key ambitions to follow responsible farming practices.
The salmon is filleted and then slow cured in our unique blend of Dead Sea salt and demerara sugar. The slow cure firms up the fish and gives the salmon a more meaty texture. It is not greasy or slimy like some other smoked salmon.
We then smoke gently over complementary wood smokes. After smoking, the salmon is rested overnight before being sliced by hand in our little Sussex smokehouse. We choose to slice the salmon in thicker, vertical, more decadent slices. Once our customers have tried it this way they never go back!
*Sometimes this isn't always possible due to weather conditions etc, in which case we choose the next best alternatives
Really lovely flavour and texture. Lovely colour and we served simply on nice bread so as not to detract from the flavour.
Really great flavour. Served simply so as not to detract from its fabulous and interesting flavour.
Erik The Red with Aquavit & Beetroot
Eric the Red (presumably named after M. Cantona) looks vibrant with the colour infused by the beetroot, which also comes tjrough in the flavour. One of the most impressive characteristics of this smoked salmon though is the texture, which is soft and yielding, augmented by the thicker cut which gives it real substance. Wonderful product!
Thank you so much Mark. We prefer a thicker more decadent cut and are glad that you agree. So glad that you enjoyed it.
I love smoked salmon, I love beetroot but never heard of aquavit so googled it. I wasn't sure about it because I don’t like "herby" drinks, but decided to give Erik a go anyway. What a very pleasant surprise! As always the alcohol wasn't overwhelming but was flavoursome. I'm struggling to find a word... mildly earthy? chewy?🤔 It was a bit different, especially served with pickled beetroot sandwiches and olives. I'll definitely buy it again.
I love that our salmon gets people to try things they maybe would not have otherwise - and enjoy it!
