Give a truly unique gift: the opportunity to create your very own bacon.

Your recipient will be able to design a signature cure for their own air-dried bacon and decide exactly how they'd like their bacon finished and presented.

Let them unleash their master flavour creator, and combine a range of delicious curing herbs, fruits and spices to create sumptuous air-dried bacon.

Here's how it works:

  1. You order the weight of bacon you'd like to gift.
  2. We post your recipient a Bray Cured gift card and instructions for how to design their own bacon.
  3. They'll then be able to choose or design the exact curing flavour blend for their bacon, whether it'll be smoked or not, and how they'd like it cut. And they can tell us where they'd like it delivered.
  4. We cure to their design, starting with the belly cut of traditional breed British pork, from the country’s finest herd of Middle White pigs, usually reserved for Michelin-starred restaurants.
  5. We air-dry to intensify and enrich the flavours.
  6. After 4-6 weeks, when the bacon is perfectly ready, we’ll smoke it if they've chosen this, and deliver to the recipient sliced, diced, rolled, in lardons or whole, as per their design.
  7. It will be vacuum packed and suitable for the cupboard, fridge or freezer.

To speed things up, we've created a few house blends which the recipient can select:
