Christmas is fast approaching, meaning the last minute dash to get some wee gifts for friends and family is upon us. So we thought we’d give you a hand and let you know about some of the stocking fillers you can purchase from our shop. Our Dry Stock Controller, Judit Sineger has come up with these four, fantastic little gifts for those whisky lovers you know.
Malt Whisky Tablet from Campbell’s Fudge
Our Malt Whisky Tablet is handmade by Campbells, a small family-run company. Their fudge and tablet is produced on a farm along the banks of the river Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Creating their creamy fudge and tablet from family recipes that are around 100 years old, the treats are a winner for those of you with a sweet tooth. The family also still use traditional cooking methods, even using water from their own natural spring. You won’t find any of these delicious delicacies in supermarkets, but instead they produce for small food traders and tourist attractions – like us!
All their tablet is free from artificial additives, flavours, preservatives, gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.
Hawkhead Smoked Salt with Chilli or Rosemary
These salts are produced by a young, upcoming company from Glasgow who have already made a name for themselves by winning ‘The Great Taste’ awards four times! Hawkhead Kitchen use ex-bourbon whisky barrels (originally sourced from America) from Lowland Distilleries to smoke their products. When the barrels age out, they are broken down into staves and burnt in their smokehouse to impart an intense smoky flavour to the rock salt. The salt is then mixed with dried rosemary or chilli for an extra kick – great for both cooking and seasoning! I really enjoy the chilli one on fried mushrooms with my breakfast.
The salt has no artificial flavouring or colour and suitable for vegans.
Malt Whisky and Honey Lip Balm from Spirited Soaps
Who doesn’t need a good quality lip balm in the cold, frosty winter months? Well we’ve got the perfect choice for whisky lovers. Our Malt Whisky and Honey Lip Balm is produced by a small soap works based on the Hebridean Island of Islay – famous all over the world for its peated whisky. The brand ensure that they capture the essence of the island in their handcrafted products by using natural ingredients, including real honey and Islay malt.
Not only is this a fantastic stocking filler – it is also made with pure and natural ingredients, being suitable for vegetarians.
Wild Scottish Raspberry Soap
This soap is also handmade by a family-run Scottish soap company, Highland Soap Co. If you hold this beautiful block against the light the pieces of raspberry shine through, making it a beautiful berry-colour, truly capturing the essence of the Scottish Highlands. Not only is it stunning on the eye, but raspberry seed oil is actually believed to be excellent for sensitive skin and is deeply nourishing. It gives a rich creamy-feel to leave skin cleansed and refreshed.
Suitable for vegans.
