smoked trout from the river test

Rainbow Trout

We use rainbow trout sourced in Hampshire’s world-renowned nutrient-rich rivers

Our smokery lies in the heart of Hampshire based in Winchester, a few minutes from the Rivers Test, Itchen and Meon which are three of the world’s finest nutrient-rich chalk streams. Being so close ensures our fish is prepared for smoking within 24 hours of being caught.

In the words of the fine British angling writer and devotee Charles Rangeley-Wilson, “these chalk streams are constant, equable, cool, fertile.” If the Test is the long-reigning King of English chalk streams, the Itchen is the Queen, and the Meon, the Princess.

Our founder, Richard Butler

Richard is a passionate fly fisherman and entrepreneur; a lover of fine foods, and the man behind the Butler Country Estates vision.

Richard’s interest and idea for Butler Country Estates was brought to life when some friends were having a dinner party, and Richard offered them some of his homemade, freshly caught smoked trout pate. He was a little taken aback when a few days later, people that had been at the dinner party started calling and asking if they could have some too. The rest, as they say, is history, and Butler Country Estates was born.

British smoked trout at its best

Bringing together the traditional and the contemporary to create something delectable and quintessentially British

Our culinary processes involve mixing the very best traditions and knowledge of the Edwardian era, with the contemporary. The result is something quite extraordinary and exquisite. Our smoked trout pate is richly indulgent, creamy, and chunky and comes in six different varieties: classic, watercress, dill, chives and chilli as well as our new dairy-free option. Richard hopes you will enjoy the food as much as he, his family and his friends do.
