Nominee: Tombuie Smokehouse Hardiesmill Category: Artisan Food
Tombuie Smokehouse for specialist smoked meats and cured meats
Tombuie Charcuterie is a gourmet producer of smoked meats, smoked game and smoked cheese. They sell their products via their online shop, through specialist outlets and at their local farmers markets.
At Tombuie Charcuterie they believe in tradition and innovation. Products range from Tombuie extra mature smoked cheese, traditional pastrami and honey-roast smoked duck through to exciting whisky-infused smoked venison, sweet-cured beef, and award-winning carpaccio-cut smoked beef.
Wisps of Scotch Lamb, which were commissioned by Scotch Lamb for the VIP area at the Bocuse d'Or, are sublime wafer thin slices of lamb that dissolve on your tongue with a wonderfully subtle flavour of sweet lamb surrounded by a hint of oak.
Tombuie Smokehouse was founded by Donald and Sally Crystal in 1981. Why is it still in existence whilst so many smokehouses have come and gone? They believe Tombuie Charcuterie has a few key differentiators that make their smoked and cured meats stand out from the crowd:
Tombuie Charcuterie is a specialist meat and game smokers/curers, so they are used to blending the subtle flavours, balancing the cure with the product and making sure that they're not drowned out by the taste of the smoke.
Their own beef - Tombuie Charcuterie uses only their own Hardiesmill Beef which comes from pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle raised on grass and grass-silage in the Scottish Borders.
Farm-Smoked – all meats are smoked or cured on the farm.
