Butts Gourmet Smokehouse traces its history back to the early 1930’s when the current business premises were first established as a butchers shop and delivered to local customers from the back of a horse and cart. By the 1950’s the business had expanded into speciality small goods and was taken over by Arthur Butt. Prompted by requests from local fisherman and access to high quality local trout, Arthur embarked on a process of experimentation to develop a truly great smoked trout. Many stories exist as to the origins of the final process’s, including the input of a Scottish swagman and travelling Belgian chef however whatever the truth the resulting product remains today as a testament to Arthur’s creativity and persistence and is recognised by the retention of Arthurs name.
We have been working with Anthony, the new owner of Butts, to create a new logo and visual identity for this enterprise. This work includes branding, product packaging and collateral, product photos (which the team loved as we got to sample the wonderful produce!) and we are working now on their new website – which is coming soon….
