The comforting and smooth texture of a cashew nut makes it ideal for smoking. They are also packed with minerals and vitamins… but not all cashews were created equally. Ours are sourced only from certified organic, agroforestory growers in India, ensuring a premium quality.
In our best-selling Whisky Smoked Firecracker Cashews we marry the tradition of Scotch with the contemporary taste of shichimi togarashi, a Japanese seven-spice blend of chilli pepper, sesame, seaweed and citrus. the warming umami heat builds slowly with each mouthful – of all our cashews, this would be the one to add sizzle while enjoying a light G&T or refreshing lager.
Our Smoking Wood: Steeped in Scottish heritage.
Our unique Hawkhead Whisky Smoked flavour is created by the fact that we only ever use aged whisky casks from Scottish distilleries in our smokery.By the time we get them, our oak wood casks will have been in service for up to 70 years, during which time they will have been flame-charred and refilled with whisky several times over.As we break down and then heat them in the smoker, one by one the layers of spirit are released and the aroma transferred into our salts, cashews and syrups, giving them that comforting fireside flavour.
