Didn’t make it to Cranachan and Crowdie’s special Savoury Not Sweet event? Then read on to find out exactly what you missed.
On arrival guests were offered a complementary beer from local brewers Innis and Gunn. As an extra treat, guests were given the chance to try their latest variety Independence Day, a fruity apple and citrus beer with a hint of vanilla.
The evening’s savoury delights kicked off with a chutney tasting challenge. Guests were invited to try six of Cranachan & Crowdie’s unusual and exciting Trotter’s chutneys and challenged to identify the flavour, with complimentary oatcakes and crisps for dunking. This proved to be harder than it seemed, especially when guests encountered a minty-fresh mojito flavoured chutney! However, this didn’t phase the challenge winner Tiffany, who went home with the prize gift pack provided by Innis and Gunn.
The evening’s second savoury treat came in the form of the venison samples from Great Taste Award winning Great Glen Game. After an introduction from company co-founder Anja Baak, guests were invited to try some of the varieties of high-quality venison produced by the acclaimed company. Accompanied by bread provided by the Manna House Bakery and Patisserie and Cranachan and Crowdie’s selection of I.J. Mellis cheeses, the venison went down a treat.
So that’s what you missed at Savoury Not Sweet! Don’t be too upset, though. You can still grab all the products featured at Cranachan and Crowdie on a regular basis!
