We sell the very best MacSween haggis and find that both the veggie and meat versions sell really well year-round, as well as on the run-up to St Andrew’s Day and Burns Night.
We also sells lots of canned Stahly Haggis, which is popular with non-UK customers who want to take some back on the plane.
DUNKELD SMOKED SALMON:
Smoked just a stone’s throw from our Dunkeld deli, it’s justifiably sought-after by locals and visitors alike. The quality is fantastic and it brings a touch of luxury to special occasions.
KENMORE BAKERY SHORTBREAD AND TABLET
With a large proportion of our customers in the summer being visitors to the area, we find that locally-made shortbread sells well. As well as proving a hit with our international customers, we find that tablet has a real nostalgic resonance with people who remember how their grannies made it.
CHARLES MCCLEOD’S STORNOWAY BLACK PUDDING:
Now classed as a superfood, we find that people will go the extra mile to seek out the very best black pud.
KINTYRE APPLESMOKE CHEDDAR:
A creamy mature Cheddar that is traditionally smoked at a Campbeltown smokehouse over apple wood chips.
