Products from the Harris & Lewis Smokehouse in Stornoway are now on-sale online after the Scottish Salmon Company (SSC) launched a new e-commerce site, giving consumers the chance to order its award-winning Smoked Scottish Salmon directly to their door for the first time.
There is also a click and collect option for those that live locally to the Harris & Lewis Smokehouse, on Sandwick Road, Stornoway.
The company says their products are raised in the West Coast of Scotland and Hebrides, with only the finest quality fresh Scottish Salmon used to make Native Hebridean and Harris & Lewis Smoked Scottish Salmon.
Fillets are gently smoked by artisan smokers who cure each fillet by hand at the Harris & Lewis Smokehouse in Stornoway, resulting in what SSC calls an unrivalled freshness and a rich flavour. It is hand cured with sea salt and Demerara sugar, then smoked using Scotch whisky cask chippings.
Winner of a Great Taste Award in 2020, Native Hebridean Scottish Salmon is the result of a ten year broodstock programme. This unique native strain descends from the wild salmon of North Uist and is raised exclusively in the Hebrides and fully traceable to the islands.
An innovative curing process has been specifically designed to minimise water usage, reducing environment impact. Only the exact amount of cure necessary is hand massaged into each fresh fillet, meaning there is no need to rinse off excess ingredients and waste water before smoking. The fillets are then finished in pebble-lined kilns with wood shavings from aged Scotch whisky barrels.
Tasting packs are available containing 100g of Native Hebridean and 100g Harris & Lewis Smoked Scottish Salmon, as well as sharing packs which contain 200g of Native Hebridean and 200g of Harris & Lewis Smoked Scottish Salmon.
Su Cox, Communications and New Business Development Director at The Scottish Salmon Company said: “The launch of our new e-commerce shop is an important step for The Scottish Salmon Company. We’re delighted our range of quality Smoked Scottish Salmon is now availble online for people in the UK to enjoy a taste of the Hebrides at home.”
