The title of Great Taste Supreme Champion 2021 was presented to J. Lawrie & Sons from Mallaig, Highland for its Jaffy’s Mallaig Kippers. The highly coveted trophy for best food or drink in the world was announced at the Great Taste Golden Fork Reception at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate, as the largest and most trusted food and drink awards on the planet reached their exciting finale.
Jaffy's Mallaig Kippers are carefully produced at the last remaining traditional kipper yard in Mallaig, using a 30ft brick kiln powered by the wind, these herring are cured in sea salt and slowly smoked over whisky cask oak shavings. Juicy and tender, silky and sweet, Jaffy’s Mallaig Kippers deliver the perfect balance of wood, smoke and fish.
The judges at this year's Great Taste Awards were impressed at every stage of the blind tasting process to earn Jaffy’s Mallaig Kippers the biggest prize in food and drink.
‘We are absolutely delighted to have won both Scottish Speciality and Supreme Champion for our Mallaig Kippers at the Great Taste Awards 2021. As a small family business running since 1944, we put tradition, heritage and quality at the heart of everything we do and so this recognition from the Guild of Fine Food and their fantastic line up of judges is such an incredible honour!’
