Ar­gyll Smok­ery reels in Great Taste Golden Fork

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from Scot­land was pre­sented to The Ar­gyll Smok­ery from Dunoon for its Kiln Roasted Sal­mon.

‘Melt­ing and mor­eish, meaty and suc­cu­lent’, this ‘well han­dled’ sal­mon is cured and smoked over oak, giv­ing it a ‘lovely aroma, gen­tle smoke and sub­lime tex­ture’.

Cel­e­brat­ing the very best in food and drink, Great Taste, the world’s most cov­eted food awards, has reached its grand fi­nale for 2018.

Out of a record break­ing 12,634 prod­ucts en­tered into Great Taste 2018, the ‘out­stand­ing’ Kiln Roasted Sal­mon, which is sourced off the West High­lands, was cel­e­brated as the best tast­ing prod­uct in its re­gion at the Great Taste Golden Fork Din­ner held on Sun­day Septem­ber 2 at the In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Park Lane Ho­tel, Lon­don, where more than 350 guests from the world of fine food gath­ered to hear the re­sults of many months of rig­or­ous judg­ing.

Ac­cept­ing the award, Al­lan McDougall, The Ar­gyll Smok­ery, said: ‘We are ex­tremely ex­cited and pleased to have won the Golden Fork top prize for Scot­land. Not just hav­ing one three-star prod­uct but two for our Kiln Roasted Sal­mon and Cold Smoked Ar­gyll Trout was a milestone for our busi­ness.’
