What does Scotland taste of? Apart, obviously, from heather, hills and girders.
We reckon that this rather special gift hamper from Arisaig restaurant in Glasgow offers a mouth-watering array of all the foods that Scotland does best – a wonderful Christmas gift.
Delivered in a beautiful, handmade wicker hamper with leather straps, this selection of Scottish delicacies would make an ideal Christmas present for a friend who is hankering after a taste of Scotland.
Taste of Scotland
The hamper is filled with the following goodies:
Loch Duart oak smoked flaky salmon (200g): Loch Duart salmon is roasted over oak smoke in small batches in purpose-built smoker ovens. The tried and tested secret recipe gives the salmon its distinctive taste, dark outer glaze and flaky, succulent texture. This fantastic fish has won over 20 awards including Product of the Year in 2009 at the Scotland Food & Drink Awards where it was dubbed ‘an iconic Scottish food’.
Inverawe smoked venison (100g): From Scotland’s smoked food specialists, consistently producing the best smoked foods. A good strong-smoked lean meat with herbs, this product is superb with avocado salad and rowanberry jelly.
Claire MacDonald Game Sauce (227g): From her home at Kinloch Lodge on the Isle of Skye Claire Macdonald has perfected the art of effortless home cooking. Using the finest natural ingredients,
locally sourced wherever possible, she has amassed a library of recipes and an international fan base that follows them.
Claire MacDonald Four Berry Preserve (227g): Tantalising in taste and attractive in design these make an ideal present or an attractive store cupboard ingredient. However, few manage to resist their temptation and they rarely remain in the cupboard for long.
Reids Of Caithness All Butter Shortbread (250g): Baked in the heart of beautiful Caithness where the Reid family have been producing for nearly 50 years
Little Doone Sweet Balsamic Vinegar With Scottish Raspberries (250ml): For something that little bit different, Litle Doone Sweet Balsamic dressing contains 25% pure crushed Scottish raspberries. The result is this exquisite dressing full of deep rich fruit flavours, giving way to the sweet, sharp palate of balsamic.
Clootie Dumpling (2×170g): The traditional Scotch dumpling is possibly the most versatile of all Scottish specialities. This cinnamon spiced steamed fruit pudding is just as tasty whether it is fried for breakfast, eaten as a cake or enjoyed as dessert.
Sauvignon Blanc, Los Espinos, Chile (750ml): A refreshing, crisp & slightly fragrant Sauvignon Blanc. Endlessly quaffable and ideal with spicy or strongly flavoured dishes.
Merlot, Los Espinos, Chile (750ml): Juicy red fruit packed with supple bramble & blackberry fruit. Soft, creamy tannins and a lip smacking finish.
