Where does it come from?
More and more we recognise that as part of our “Real” Customer Promise, we need to ensure that both our beers and our food comes from the best locally sourced produce wherever possible and practical. For that reason, we have carefully selected suppliers for our ingredients.
In the rural Highland context, given the sparsity of suppliers, local can mean a variety of things. However, as a general rule, we like to ensure that the significant part of our produce is sourced from within Scotland, and preferably from named sources.
FISH & MEAT
Our Scottish smoked Haddock and Scottish Salmon comes predominantly from Wester Ross. The Salmon fallows for a time in the Summer so during this period the Salmon is sourced from other Highland suppliers. Letterfinlay Foods in Fort William.
