Meet your host Anthony, a charming Irishman with a dry sense of humor at his traditionally-inspired modern smokehouse for your tour and tasting of their award-winning smoked foods. The Ummera smokehouse smokes organically farmed salmon fished from the west coast of Ireland and grown to the highest standards. You will learn about how Anthony cures his salmon using the wet curing process, the same process his father started with in the seventies! Discover how oak sawdust renders a smooth and lovely flavor to their smoked salmon, before you sit down at a farm table outdoors (weather permitting) to taste a variety of their smoked foods, including their smoked duck which won a 3-star gold award! Your smokehouse tour will last about 45 minutes before you enjoy a tasting of smoked salmon and meats at Ummera. Your tasting will be paired with three locally crafted ciders, from a dry sparkling to a sweet cider, all produced by Anthony's brother-in-law at Stonewell Cider.
