Flavour of the season - The Sozzled Santa
Brandy, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clementine zest
Of course we only smoke and cure the finest sashimi grade Scottish fish to make our booze infused smoked salmon.
The Pished Fish says "Truly scrumptious. Everything one loves about Christmas, wrapped up in a salmony morsel. I'm getting notes cinnamon, an zing from the brandy and clementine zest followed by delicate aromas of nutmeg. The oak smoke after taste is just to die for! Granny will be thrilled with a little of this on Christmas morning, washed down with a little Bucks Fizz. Marvellous!"

A little more about our fantastic fish. We choose the finest salmon from the clean, fresh, tidal waters around Scotland. We source from only the best independent artisan salmon farms adhering to the highest welfare standards, and are naturally always RSPCA assured. Every process we conduct is carried out by hand, from filleting and curing to smoking, slicing and packaging - no heavy machinery here. We use the finest ingredients, from well known brands of single malt whisky and gin to the fresh botanicals that go into making every single pack of our smoked salmon unique and delicious.
We slow cure the salmon in booze and botanicals which leads to more water loss, a firmer texture and more flavourful fish - think of the difference between good and bad bacon.
We smoke gently. We don't believe in smoking away the flavour of the fish, we want you to be able to taste the fish and the complementing cure that we've used.
We slice the smoked salmon in thick, sashimi style slices. This allows you to experience the full flavour profile of our salmon. The rich, flavourful outer layer - where the smoke and the cure has really worked its magic. Then the creamy, buttery inner flesh of the fish. You won't go back to wafer thin sliced smoked salmon once you've tried it this way.
We arrange, package and vacuum seal each pack by hand - how else could we make sure every pack is in tip top condition?
Every half and whole side is hand sliced, with the skin off although please state if you would prefer to hand slice yourself.
