Blackbeards Smokehouse

We use local Coromandel grown mussels and handsmoke these on our premises making this a uniquely Coromandel product.


Our philosophy comes from a passionate love of food and good times.  Experimenting and tasting to come up with the best, delicious smoked seafood for you to enjoy. Coromandel green lipped mussels, smoked the artisan way in a traditional Smokehouse.

The combination of smoking and brining is the traditional artisan way and the secret to maintaining the juicy integrity of our natural New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels.  Blackbeards Smokehouse operates a traditional brick kiln using heat and old fashioned manuka wood smoke to create a unique traditional product with an exceptional flavour.    We have created our own marinates using where possible the best fresh locally sourced ingredients; fresh local garlic, organic kaffir lime, and NZ sea salt, to name a few.  The result is a 100% natural and preservative-free delicious, healthy product.
