The Flavours of New Hot Smoked Mackerel

In our last post, we introduced the newest member of the Gold Seal lineup, hot smoked mackerel. Since then, our excitement to share this remarkable new taste experience with you hasn’t waned. In fact, we’re equally excited to talk about the three perfectly balanced flavour varieties and to share what we consider to be their perfect pairings.

Gin & Tonic

Not to worry, you’ll still be able to drive after enjoying our delicious hot smoked North Atlantic mackerel dressed in juniper berry and coriander seed oils. Sophisticated and balanced, the flavour is inspired by gin and tonic.
