We are currently working closely with Colin Bussey fromerly Executive Chef at Gleneagles Hotel to develop new and exciting products.... More news on that soon!
Rannoch Smokery is a company born out of bad weather and has grown and developed on the strength of our passion and creative thinking. Leo Barclay started the company in the 1980’s following a bad winter which prevented him getting his deer cull to market. Being an entrepreneur, he brined the meat in a bath tub before slowly smoking it in a home-made smoker, creating the first Rannoch Smoked Venison. 24 years on we still produce our flagship smoked venison along with many other products including smoked chicken, smoked beef and smoked duck, many of which have won Great Taste Awards, the seal of quality food and drink.
Rannoch Smokery is a dedicated meat and game smoker passionate about quality and producing the best smoked meats from the hills surrounding Kinloch Rannoch in Scotland. Idylically situated at the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the shadow of the mystical Schiehallion Mountain (the fairy mountain of the Caledonians), Rannoch Smokery offers its customers a true flavour of romantic Scotland. Many of Rannoch Smokery’s products are sourced locally including the red deer from the surrounding hills for their flagship Smoked Vension as well as lamb and beef from Aberdeenshire and Scottish smoked salmon to ensure the highest quality and taste.
