The Ramsay family has been making Ayrshire bacon for well over 150 years. Ayrshire is the traditional Scottish cure that takes skinless and boneless sides of outdoor-reared pork and slowly cures them in a vat to give it an exceptional flavour.
Ayrshire bacon is matured slowly to let the natural flavours develop, and because we don’t add water or additives, our bacon won’t shrink away in the pan and will crisp up beautifully. There are very few producers who still make bacon this way and this was the reason that Rick Stein first came to visit Carluke, and made us one of his Food Heroes. So if you value good traditional produce you owe it to yourself to give our bacon a try.
