When Should I Place My Order To Guarantee Delivery with Maximum Shelf-Life for Christmas?
Please order anytime ... NOW and simply select or request a December delivery date.
Christmas at Black Mountains Smokery gets hectic!
Ordering in advance for Christmas delivery helps us plan December production of Traditional Oak Smoked Salmon, Oak Roasted Salmon & Honey and Mustard Glazed Christmas Hams - ready to fill your festive table and ease entertaining.
We can send gifts and hampers all over the United Kingdom to delight your friends and family - and provide easy, delicious meals and treats. From our classic £49 Taste for Two Hamper to our extremely generous £375 Classic Crickhowell Wicker Hamper, there's something to suit every budget and palate. Gourmet gifts can be sent directly to your recipients on the day of your choosing with your message hand-written by us with love.
Please try to get your Christmas Orders into us by early December to avoid disappointment. Our Christmas order book generally closes by about 15th December. In order to get the longest shelf life, that is close to Christmas with a better guarantee on delivery, select delivery dates in the week commencing 14th December. Our smoked products (Except Gravadlax, Haddock & Kippers) have a shelf life of at least two weeks in the fridge and they all can be frozen (except Smokey Jo's Pates - 7-10 days fridge life only).
Orders for Christmas hams must be placed by 4th December as they are produced to order. We will dispatch most Christmas hams for delivery on 17th and 18th December.
Gravadlax - also produced to order, needs to be ordered for delivery by early December and is better kept frozen for Christmas as it doesn't enjoy being knocked around in a busy fridge.
Please place your order online and select your delivery date on the calendar at the checkout. Or give us a ring!
Please order as early as you can. Christmas orders are coming in fast and the delivery slots closest to Christmas get booked up quickly!
If you would like to collect a Christmas order from our Smokery shop please order in advance either by phone, online, or pop in and see us. Order collections will run until 10:00 am on 24th December. The shop and office also have extended opening hours in the build-up to Christmas, including weekends, which will be published soon.
If you arrange to receive your Christmas order earlier in December it will freeze beautifully as all our produce is freshly prepared and vacuum packed. Just remember to thaw it in good time and serve at room temperature for the best flavour.
