Arbroath Smokies Arbroath Smokies

Arbroath Smokies produced by Arbroath based Iain Spink are nationally renowned and Iain is regularly seen at Food Shows and events around the country with his mobile Arbroath Smokie demonstrations. We are delighted that he will be here in Largs on Sunday 28 August. A well known promoter of the Arbroath Smokie, he has been featured on numerous TV programmes such as The BBC’s ‘Coast,’ ‘Jamie’s Great Britain,’ ‘ Great British Menu,’ ‘The Campervan Cook,’ ‘Rick Stein’s Food Heroes,’ ‘UKTV Food Local Food Heroes’ and many others.

Arbroath Smokies produced by Iain have been named as one of the Top 50 Foods within the UK. The list was drawn up as part of the Guild of Fine Food’s annual Great Taste accreditation scheme, which saw 8,807 food and drink products blind-tasted and whittled down over the course of 45 days by 350 experts. Plus Iain’s received a 3 Star Gold Award (the highest level) in the prestigious 2012 Great Taste Awards, the latest in a long line of accolades and awards.

Iain started up his mobile demonstrations over 10 years ago and is now regarded as something of an ambassador for the product, his high-profile undoubtedly benefiting other smokie producers in Arbroath due to the increased awareness of the product. So if you want to experience Iain’s Arbroath Smokies for yourself, at their best and fresh from the barrel, plan your visit to Largs on 31 August.
