About Ardtaraig

Owned and run by the Mortimer Family, Ardtaraig Fine Foods is a small Scottish run business which has been established for over 40 years. Originally based at the head of Loch Striven in Argyll, the company has won the Queens award for export and exported its produce all over the world. We are now primarily a retail oriented business offering a mail order service second to none. We can send our products direct to your door or, as many of our customers like to use us, as a gift. Most of our products can be sent all over Europe to arrive in the very best condition and as close to your preferred delivery date as possible.

We have always been proud to provide the finest quality Smoked Scottish Salmon and today this is no different. We offer a wide range of Smoked Scottish produce including our delicious Salmon range of traditional farmed, Certified Organic and, when we can get it, the finest Wild Scottish Salmon.

In addition to our Smoked Salmon, we also offer Gravadlax, Hot Roasted Salmon, Smoked Scottish Rainbow Trout and Kippers. We offer mixed tasting boxes for those new to our produce and a range of small Smoked Fish hampers with complimentary products and beautiful boxes and Hampers. These make the perfect gift for loved ones, friends or business clients.

We have also individually sourced and partnered with companies to provide a carefully selected range of the finest complementary produce we could find. 

This includes delicious Wild Venison taken directly off the hills in Argyll and meticulously prepared to offer what we like to think is the best Venison for sale in Scotland. This includes Whole Haunches, Fillet and Haunch Steaks, Whole Fillets, Sausages, Burgers and more. Click here to see our range.

We also have sourced a wonderful range of Fresh Oysters grown in the river Blackwater by our partner company, Maldon Oysters. We are proud to exclusively offer their produce via the internet. This includes Rock Oysters, Native Oysters, Kumomoto Oysters, Wild Oysters, Palourdes Clams and Mussels. These beautiful shellfish are taken straight from their filtration/holding tanks and carefully packaged in wooden boxes to be sent and on your doorstep within 24-48 hours. This ensures you receive the freshest possible produce for you to enjoy. Maldon Oysters utilise only the most modern preparation methods, and they are the only UK certified process which utilises Ozone treatment to not only filter the Oysters very effectively to remove grit, but more importantly to practically eliminate the chances of any viruses. Obviously some of these products are seasonal, so click here to see what we have on offer currently and to see more information.

We also offer a delicious range of hand decorated Belgian chocolates, these decadent chocolates make a fantastic gift and include Champagnetruffles, Continental Chocolates, Beligan Liqueurs and more. Click here to see our range.

We also offer a wider range of hampers ranging from long life hampers, perfect for those who wont eat too much at once, to full-on decadence hampers with champagne, whisky, meats, cheeses and more. Click here to see what we have to offer.
