“Coln Valley is a proper artisan smokehouse in the heart of the Cotswolds. Its production methods are taditional and it uses brick kilns to give a wonderful mild, smokey flavour to its products. It uses specially selected superior grade salmon from a couple of farms on the west coast of Scotland.”
Great British Food Magazine, 2013
“Rich and incredibly moist, this is a real connoisseur’s smoked salmon. It is very well-seasoned and intensely fishy.”
‘Smoking Hot’ taste test, Great British Food Magazine, 2012
Scottish salmon gently cooked in brick kilns produces a traditional ‘London-style’ flavour. The texture is soft and not at all sinewy.

“Just in time for Christmas, the renowned artisan smokehouse has unleashed a fine-food triplet of differerntly flavoured gravadlaxes. The salmon is cured following traditional methods in brick kilns that are updated versions of the original London Smokeholes to produce a mild, smokey flavour.”

“Swish Fish. Last year you could get Pimm’s Gravadlax only at Wimbledon. But such was the demand that Coln Valley has produced some for non-tennis players this year, too.”
Food News, The Daily Telegraph, 2011.
“We love this very English twist on a Scandinavian Classic. Coln Valley’s melt-in-the-mouth has refreshing hints of orange, mint and Pimms. The perfect July starter.”
Olive Magazine, July 2011
“If you liked your smoked salmon really moist and rich, this is a treat taolired for you. The sides of salmon are cured for three days in Pimm’s, mint and orange, imparting a lingering fruitiness that doesn’t interfere with the initial hint of fish. Great served in a decadent sandwich which will benefit from the succulence of the fat slices.”
