Birchotan charcoal

Our mission:
To create 
the finest charcoal in the world

Raw materials of the highest quality, a unique process and attention to every detail. When we created Birchotan we decided to stop at nothing to make it the best it possibly can be.

And with our heritage in charcoal making stretching as far back as 1672 – nearly 350 years – we firmly believe we can create the best charcoal in the world.

Performing to
the highest standards

Long lasting heat, and a flavor profile that enhances rather than overpowers the food.
Birchotan is used daily in some of the best restaurants in Northern Europe, in a wide variety of equipment.


Sustainable in every step

From the locally sourced Birch wood we use, to running  the charcoal making process on electricity generated by our own solar panels. For us, sustainability is at the core of creating Birchotan.

The whole manufacturing process, from cutting the birch wood, to packaging, takes place at our farm in Kurkkio, in the Arctic region of Sweden.
