Great Glen Charcuterie is a family business established in 2003 by Jan Jacob and Anja Baak. Over the years the company has evolved from full time deer processing to specialised charcuterie production. The Baaks had moved from the Netherlands with their young family to live and work in the beautiful and remote countryside of the Highlands of Scotland in 2000.
After much experimenting with venison, they built a wooden smoker in the garden and developed the first Venison Salami. Friends and family enjoyed the charcuterie and encouraged them to start the business.
The company operates from the Old Butchershop in the small village of Roy Bridge in the Scottish Highlands and supplies independent retailers and restaurants across the UK and abroad.
Only Great Glen Charcuterie’s Venison & Pork products contain pork, all their other products are made with 100% wild Scottish venison. This makes them a healthy alternative to the more common, pork based charcuterie and also suitable for people who do not want to eat pork.
