Great Taste Awards 2021 - it's a winner!

Great Taste Awards 2021 Burren SmokehouseA while back, we joined forces with Waterford Distillery and some lemons to create a unique marinade. Now the results are out: this special creation won a 1-star Gold Medal at the "Oscarsof the Food World".

These are the comments from the judges:

"A well smoked piece of salmon with a generous covering of lemon zest. The levels of smoke and salt were spot on, while the combination of lemon and whiskey really delivered on flavour. They were complex and balanced and utterly moreish. A well cured salmon."

"What a wonderful aroma of clean smoke and citrus, followed by the sweet fresh salmon. The smoke level is bang on the money."

"A sweet, lemony nose, and large, thick slices of salmon with plenty of fresh lemon zest on top. A pleasing flavour from the whiskey and a good fresh lemon kick left us excited by this fresh tasting salmon. A nice texture with some pleasing chew and well-prepared and sliced pieces of fish."
