Taste Of The West 'Supreme Champion Product' and 'Champion Fish'

We are delighted and humbled to be awarded the Taste Of The West ‘Supreme Champion Product’ and ‘Champion Fish’ awards for our Blakewell Smokehouse ‘Hot Smoked Devon Trout’ presented in the Great Hall, Exeter University. 
Thank you to sponsors @Oldmill and @Blackandwhite and @Tasteofthewest and all the judges for their support. 

Purveyors of true taste

Our Superior Cold Smoked Salmon achieved the coveted product of the year and a platinum award at the 2021/2022 Devon Food & Drink awards for the taste, quality and sustainability of our artisan product.

Taste. We’re obsessed by it.

Taking the most mouth-watering, fresh Salmon and Trout, smoking it with the finest wood chips to draw out the delicate flavours that are hidden within. Exploring how we can create something unique and desirable for those who seek the fineries of taste. This is, and has always been, our passion. To be different, to be the obvious choice for the discerning. We have challenged ourselves to become the purveyors of true taste and seek it in everything we do.

And now we believe we’ve got it just about right.


"Winning product of the year and a platinum award makes all those years of 'getting it right' well worth it

We are the Nickell brothers. We’ve been fish farming and working in harmony with nature all our lives. You see we’ve grown up with it, we know about it and care about what we do. When it comes to producing beautiful Smoked Salmon and Trout we don't believe in rushing it. We’re passionate about great tasting, locally produced food. And we want you to experience and enjoy it... just like we do. 

Experience the taste yourself...
