Ritchie's of Rothesay
Ritchie's of Rothesay is situated on the beautiful Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde on the West Coast of Scotland.The traditional smokehouse has been in continuous operation since 1888, one of the oldest and finest smokehouses in Scotland.
Our secret recipe involves curing and smoking Scottish salmon, taken from ice cold Atlantic waters, for 2 days and nights - all done by hand in a traditional way, unchanged by generations of the Ritchie family.
We smoke our cured salmon over oak shavings (from Scotch whisky casks) in kilns that have been in use for over 100 years.
In keeping with tradition, our smoked salmon is then sliced by hand (to order) so as to emphasise its rich and varied texture. This is why we are known both locally and internationally as producers of the highest quality smoked fish. Our salmon, with its unique flavour has kept loyal customers from all over the world coming back for more year after year.
No artificial ingredients, preservatives or colours are added.
You can come at our shop where we will be more than happy to suggest recipes for our fish, or you can order on the phone or online and we will deliver direct to your door.
With traditional values, an amazing array of smoked fish products and the heritage that is embodied in Ritchie's of Rothesay, it is apparent why our products are so loved and excel in comparison to any other.
