FISH .01

We select the best fish from the Azorean Seas to offer you the highest quality products. All fish is sustainably caught and processed in our production unit.

Wood .02

To smoke our fish, we use our endemic wood, the Azorean Firetree. The wood our company uses comes from forest cleaning activities, which helps valuing a resource that would otherwise be discarded. The Azorean Firetree provides a unique and distinct flavor to our fish, reminding us of the Azorean traditional smoking and cooking processes from the “old days”.

Smokehouse .03

We built our own cold smoking unit to ensure that our products are consistently produced with unparalleled flavors and aromas.

From fishing to smoking, our products are 100% handcrafted and are free from additives, chemical preservatives or food dyes.
