Black Garlic Whisky Smoked Salt
Our unique Whisky Smoked Salts are made using triple filtered, small batch Atlantic salt from the UK which has a distinct mineral profile and a sea-fresh purity. Free from preservatives, the light crystal flakes are perfect for absorbing all the warmth and sweetness of the smoky aromas.
This salt is made using black garlic from Europe’s oldest producer who has been perfecting their ageing process for more than 12 years. With its origins in Far Eastern cuisines, black garlic is an increasingly popular ingredient that has only reached European palates in recent years. Unlike raw garlic, black garlic has a uniquely mellow, umami flavour. We smoke it and crumble it into our salt for a robust and deep flavour profile.
"The smell of this is amazing, as is the taste - we love that the black garlic is not overwhelmed by the smoking, nor the smoking process overwhelmed by the black garlic. And the salt is of such good quality and so well presented that it complements the smoked garlic. This will be a very valuable addition to the range of seasonings in anyone's kitchen."
"A delicious black garlic nose within a very attractive flecked salt. The salt crystals themselves have a great mineral flavour with enough moisture to enable them to flake well between your fingers. The smoke is well judged, and full of bonfire. But not acrid - it's just enough. The black garlic follows on with intense unami and molasses. An absolutely stunning product. A triumph!"
"We adore the rich well balanced smoke from the whisky casks. The mineral content in the salt is wonderful and a joy to experience. Well done"
Our Unique Hawkhead Whisky Smoked flavour is created by the fact that we only ever use aged whisky casks from Scottish distilleries in our smokery.
By the time we get them, our oak wood casks will have been in service for up to 70 years, during which time they will have been flame-charred and refilled with whisky several times over.
As we break down and then heat them in the smoker, one by one the layers of spirit are released and the aroma transferred into our salts, cashews and syrups, giving them that comforting fireside flavour
