The story of Globaltic begins in Tallinn, Estonia. We were restaurant owners and frequent charcoal users. Sustainability, quality and integrity are very important to us, we struggled to find a charcoal product that gave us the results we desired, without the use of additives or accelerants and from a sustainable source.
Our search for the perfect wood took us around the world, to Europe, Asia and across Russia. We learned about what makes great wood and how it can be refined into quality charcoal. Native to our home are the Karelian Forests and their abundance of Silver Birch trees. Silver Birch makes for fantastic charcoal due to it being a hardwood, hardwoods have a naturally dense composition. We established supply with local people who had a passion for sustainable deforestation practices and began to produce the charcoal we’d always dreamed of. It was then, that Globaltic was born.
Our charcoal became an instant success with chefs, the live fire cooking community and restauranteurs alike, our small company grew and we started to expand into Europe. We are now based in London, England and have dealers across 9 countries and a community of passionate Globaltic users.
Using traditional charcoal manufacturing techniques, we craft charcoal from the core of hand selected silver birch trees. Our charcoal comes in large chunks with a burn time of 980 sec/cm3, it has a typical heat value of 8500 Kcal/kg allowing it to burn at extreme temperatures for a consistently long time and produce very little ash.
We are privileged to bring Globaltic to 10 counrties in Europe. A good product will always find its way forward and we are lucky to have friends and partners all across Europe.
Great charcoal is the lifeblood of any barbeque and we believe that when it comes to heat, burn time, price and most importantly
the taste of your food, you should never settle for anything less than the best.
When you BBQ, always choose Globaltic.

Silver Birch has a unique taste property that makes it ideal for charcoal products. All trees have tannins and each tree has a varying amount, tannins are bitter and it can taint the taste of your food. Karelian Silver Birch only has 15%, whereas most other trees used for charcoal production have 50-60%.
