We produce artisan, long shelf-life, high protein Scotch Beef Jerky using locally sourced beef without artificial preservatives, MSG or additives. We hot smoke in Whisky Barrel smokers, not electrically dehydrators.
We know from experience how important it is to choose the right food to take with you on your outdoor activities and expeditions.
For us it all starts with the beef. We only work with ethically and welfare friendly sourced prime Scotch beef that is reared and processed by a farm only 28 miles away. Set in a peaceful and caring environment this results in lower stress, food miles and carbon footprint.
We hand trim, slice, marinade, and hot wood smoke prime Scotch Beef silverside strips in our upcycled Whisky barrels. In our opinion, this results in jerky that is delicious, comforting and packed with healthy energy-boosting protein. In fact our Scottish Beef jerky contains 51.4g of protein per 100g of Jerky, that's 28% more than the main large commercial brands available in the UK.
Unlike the large commercial Jerky manufacturers who often using globally sourced beef, our artisan processes are radically different. We do not use electric dehydrators, chemical/liquid smoke, Soy, dairy, MSG’s, artificial preservatives (nitrates) or additives.
We do not believe this is ethical or sustainable
Your jerky is packed into either 50g snack packs or our 200g tough resealable bulk expedition pouches, all with a long 12 month ambient shelf life from production. We think this makes Smoky Barrel Jerky the choice for protein and flavour when planning your activity. It is the perfect healthy alternative to fatty snacks or for adding protein to the campfire pot after a great day outdoors. If you enjoy cooking, why not check out our Jerky Recipes for inspiration?
