Hand Crafted, Artisan, Smoked Produce
from sustainable sources
From the 1st of November 2017 until the 30th of March 2018, when we revert to our summer opening times, we are available at the smokehouse for enquiries and orders. However, as all products may not be readily available during this period, please contact us by telephone (01520 755367) or e-mail us to check availability before placing an order which can be uplifted by arrangement.
Derrick MacIver warmly welcomes you to Applecross Smokehouse online shop.
Applecross Smokehouse is situated on the North Coast road of the beautiful Applecross Peninsula at Kenmore, on the North Coast 500 route, overlooking Loch Torridon and the Torridon Mountains.
In the smokehouse we marinade our products to our own well proven recipe and smoke using whisky soaked oak shavings, ensuring we consistently produce outstanding smoked products with a distinctive and unique flavour.
For cold smoking, the salmon or trout are cured in a marinade, then gently smoked for 24 to 48 hours at a temperature of less than 30C. The hot roasted salmon is treated as with the cold smoked, then cooked for up to an hour. Our original hot smoked salmon fillets are brined, never cold smoked but cooked directly over the hot wood.
To ensure that your order reaches you in pristine condition, everything is vacuum packed and despatched to you in insulated packaging and enclosed with a frozen gel pack. Cold smoked salmon and sea trout is despatched with a 20 day shelf life. Hot smoked salmon and sea trout is despatched with a 14 day shelf life. The shelf life is based on the products being stored in a refrigerator. They are suitable for home freezing for up to 3 months.
