‘The Algarve Smoke Company’ is the only Portuguese owned business which creates and commercially markets Cold Smoked products and Black Garlic.
Black Garlic: We use thousand year old traditional Asian methods and time, allowing 41-days to create Black Garlic. The taste is a soft black clove with hints of balsamic and truffles. It’s a truly amazing and unique taste.
Smoked Garlic, Chilis, Salt and Seasoned Blends: Through slow, cold smoking the volatile oils within the garlic bulb are converted to sugar, making the garlic not only sweet but mild, nutty and smoky. Our sensational smoked garlic salt, chilies and seasoned blends enhance all foods, elevating them to the heights of culinary heaven.
We exclusively use fresh, locally grown, organic, hand harvested ingredients from Portugal. The wood we burn for smoking comes from sustainable local woodlands and orchards. The organic solar sea-salt is harvested from the Tavira salt pans and the Chilis and Garlic are either grown on our own lands or sourced from local micro-farms. We smoke using a combination of Olive; Almond Wood & Carob pods mixed with the leaves of Rosemary and Bay Laurel and ‘cold’ smoke for a minimum of 48-hours.
Our flagship product is ‘The Artesian Smoked Garlic Seasoning’. The salt and garlic are smoked by hand for over 48-hours and then tumble roasted with shallots, coriander, cumin, paprika, pepper chipotle chili, oregano, and Tamari; the result is one of finest seasoning to ever cross the lips of food-lovers
