We only farm Steelhead Trout, because it’s exceptional. The same species as the rainbow, but with a natural inclination to migrate to the sea, Kames Steelhead is athletic from swimming against a huge volume of Scottish oceanic water. This makes it lean, high in Omega 3s and essential vitamins, with a beautifully firm texture and delicate flavour.
Our fish is smoked by Ruari Murray, a third-generation smoker in the neighbouring glen who hand-cures the fish and smokes over oak from recycled whisky barrels. We have worked with him for decades and have always found his smoke unbeatable. The taste is delicate, but with a sweet depth of flavour. All our smoked products are sliced and interleaved.
