The Pride of Scotland only ever smokes Scottish salmon and only ever smokes in Scotland. With a heritage stretching back to 1913, The Pride of Scotland brings together two of Scotland’s greatest traditions, the finest salmon and the time-honoured craft of smoking. Our smokehouse has been situated on the historic Speybay for over 100 years, producing the highest quality smoked salmon range to suit every taste and occasion.
The art of smoking salmon is a skill passed down over several generations. Our master smokers dry cure our fillets by hand with sea salt, before allowing natural, sweet oak smoke to gently envelop our Scottish salmon over many hours. Smoking salmon is a craft that takes time and care to ensure each batch meets our seal of quality, with a perfect texture and balance of flavours.
The Pride of Scotland uses oak chips from retired whisky casks, which are procured from our local Speyside distilleries. The oak chips are slowly burned to produce a subtle smoke profile. Our smoking techniques can only be found at The Pride of Scotland, where our exclusive hand-built kilns give us a truly unique product.
Bringing together two of Scotland's finest delicacies: smoked salmon and malt whisky. The Pride of Scotland smokery is situated in the famous Spey Valley, where much of the world's best malt whisky is produced. The rich and comforting flavour of malt whisky complements our smoked salmon perfectly giving an exclusive and beautifully flavoured product, sliced and ready to enjoy.
An ancient cure, using dill and crushed black pepper adds another dimension to our smoked salmon and when eaten with The Pride of Scotland's signature Mustard and Dill sauce offers a truly indulgent experience.
Our oak smoked sliced salmon has been selling worldwide for over 100 years. It is perfectly cured, and our subtle process delivers a faultless balance of salt, smoke and salmon.
