The Loch Fyne Kinglas Fillet Wins Taste Test In Al Dente Magazine
The Loch Fyne Kinglas Fillet wins taste test in al dente—the magazine for connoisseurs.
Simon Briggs, Sales Director said:
"We are delighted that the Loch Fyne Kinglas Fillet, came out top in a blind taste test by six top industry professionals from Switzerland. It is particularly pleasing to win this accolade in Switzerland where quality is so important."
The Kinglas fillet is the finest cut taken from the crown of a side of smoked salmon, gently smoked over oak shavings from aged malt whisky casks to give the most exquisitely delicate texture and flavour.
Martyn Paterson, Operations Director said:
"It is great news for our skilled colleagues in our Smokery. It starts with our fish and we work with our sister company, The Scottish Salmon Company, to select the best fish with a high marine content in their feed which delivers outstanding taste and the artisan skills of the Smokehouse team turn that into the winning Kinglas Fillet."
