The Ghillie Kettle has been produced for centuries and we still manufacture them in the age old traditional way. We do however have one unique feature - all of our Kettles come complete with its own whistle. This adds to a safer product as you know exactly when the kettle reaches boiling point.
All of our Kettles are delivered in their own storage sack and are supplied with full instructions. The Ghillie Kettle is ideal for Camping, Fishing, Hiking and any outdoor activity. Able to be used in harsh conditions even Wet and Windy. It is quick, durable and simple to use with no need for gas or artificial fuel : Use twigs, fir cones, dry leaves and news paper.
All of our Anodized Kettles are Hard Anodized, the result being is that you get a thicker stronger coating which is about 2-4 times stronger than the normal anodizing process. It's about as close as you can get to titanium while still using a easily machineable aluminum.
In 2015, Ghillie Kettle Co has changed its hard anodising process by removing the dye used to give the dark grey/black appearance.
This reasoning for the removal of dye is purely based on environmental grounds and has no effect on the performance of the Ghillie Kettle. However the removal of the dye does lead to slight variance of colour caused by the hard anodizing process.
The Ghillie Kettles are still Hard anodized to BS.ISO.1007 and 30-40 microns deep (which complies with British Food standard), but are now silver/grey in colour.
Hard Anodized Ghillie Kettles are still guaranteed for 10 years, subject to normal wear and tear; a certificate of conformity is available on request.
Angling world comment...
“I came across your wonderful kettle earlier in the year while I was on a fishing trip to Rutland Waters. It is a truly amazing bit of kit and I could not believe how well it worked even on the wettest of days. We enjoyed a nice cup of tea while on the shores during our break from fishing” testimonial from Tobyn Smyth - Glasgow Angling World.

Discovery Channel appearance !
THE DAILY life of a small company making kettles which are transported across the world is set to hit the small screen.
Ghillie Kettle Company attracted the interest of Francois Senecal-Tremblay, director of the Discovery Channel's How It's Made programme, during one of his trips to the UK.
He loved the idea of an outside kettle which worked using natural produce so much he and his team spent the day filming at their base in Weights Lane on Tuesday (February 10).
The programme will take viewers through the process of making the kettle from start to finish and will air in six to nine months time.

Redditch company to star on Discovery Channel's How It's Made
REDDITCH company, which produce outdoor kettles, was visited by film crews from the television documentary series How It's Made.
Steve Belcher from Ghillie Kettle Company, based in Weights Lane, said he was shocked after he was asked if the company would like to demonstrate how the kettles are produced for the show by senior director François Senécal Tremblay.
Mr Belcher said: “He asked if I was interested, I sent some pictures and things went quiet, then, just before Christmas, he came back to me.
“I am shocked; we are only a small company.”
The kettles do not use regular fuel to boil but instead combustible materials including twigs, pine-cones and small sticks to produce energy.
A team visited the firm on Tuesday, February 10 where they recorded footage throughout the day.
Mr Belcher added: “It's an experience for all of us. He was a very good director he knew exactly what he was doing. I can’t wait to see it.”
Mr Belcher alongside his wife Maggie, Alan Smith and Nic
ky Bray manufacture around 1,000 kettles every month and they are sent around the world to countries including North and South America, Japan and Australia as well as Europe.
Inspiration for the kettles came from the Ghillies’ of Western Ireland, where during the 1800s they heated kettles of water by the riverside.
The idea was advanced in New Zealand and was the design was further improved in England.
