Luxury Summer Hampers from Isle of Skye Smokehouse

Fri 17 Jul, 2009 // Tartan Silk

Multi award winning seafood specialist the Isle of Skye Smokehouse has brought together a delicious selection of summer delights to create the Isle of Skye Smokehouse Luxury Summer Hamper. Ideal for a luxurious outdoor meal, the sumptuous collection of seafood is caught off the west coast of Scotland, prepared locally and delivered to your door. Presented in a beautiful wicker hamper it includes their award winning Isle of Skye Smoked Salmon, along with a selection of their best smoked seafood delights, a delightfully fresh cheese and an optional bottle of a lush and zesty Pinot Grigio.

Established in 1993 the Isle of Skye Smokehouse was initially formed to supply local hotels and restaurants fresh and smoked seafood, direct from the fishermen and boats that caught them. Before long they were supplying some of Scotland’s most well known hotels and restaurants, including the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, Skibo Castle in Dornoch, Harrods and the Royal Scotsman.

Thanks to the success of their seafood in these establishments, demand then took off direct from consumers resulting in the creation of their online shop (www.skye-seafood.co.uk) and a mail order brochure. Since then consumers have been able to have the very best premium quality seafood delivered directly to their door.

Each of their smoked products is created in a different way, using a process which has been developed following many years of scrupulous attention to detail and a passion for guaranteeing that they offer the consumer the best they possibly can. Their Isle of Skye Smoked Salmon is created using hand-reared freedom foods farmed salmon that is uniquely cured for much longer than usual - five days to be precise - and then smoked using old whisky barrel chips from the smokehouse's local distillery to create a smoked salmon unlike any other. This dedication to producing the very best products resulted in their Isle of Skye Smoked Salmon beating off stiff competition in 2008 to be crowned the winner of the Smoked Salmon World Cup.

The Isle of Skye Smokehouse Luxury Summer Hamper turns a picnic into a gourmet meal. All of the products come ready to eat so all you need to pack is your silverware and crockery for a luxurious outdoor meal that will make you the envy of other picnickers. Surrounded by nature’s beauty you can feast on award winning smoked salmon, smoked peppered mackerel and smoked mussels with Scottish oatcakes, Ard Darrich chutney and Dairy Cromal cheese.

Summer is also the time to dust off the barbeque and while the choice of food to barbeque may be endless, too often the type of food cooked is the same. This is where the Isle of Skye Smokehouse Luxury Summer Hamper comes in to its own, offering a number of mouth-watering options to “throw on the barbie”. The Isle of Skye Smokehouse smoked langoustines, for example, can be weigh anything up to 110g (almost quarter of a pound) and taste delicious lightly barbequed. Isle of Skye Smokehouse recommends serving them with a creamy aioli or garlic mayonnaise and suggests enjoying them with the bottle of Pinot Grigio ‘Le Rosse’, Tommasi, Veneto 2007, an optional extra in the Luxury Summer Hamper.

The Luxury Summer Hamper or individual items in their range of seafood can all be bought through their website www.skye-seafood.co.uk or by calling 0800 781 3687.
