We are very lucky to have honey from a small beekeeper from Royal Deeside. This is the area where the Queen stays for her summer holiday, although perhaps not this year. Our bee keeper Marz is now retired and looks after her bees and sells honey at local markets.
Here’s a photo of Marz watching her bees return to a skep.
We have created so many unique gift boxes filled with food and drink produced in Scotland over the past several years, each one with a special person in mind. During the current COVID-19 lockdown in Scotland we are reminded how special each and every one of us is.
Unique box filled with Scottish food and gin.
The shop is closed at the moment, but we’ll post again when we’re in a position to reopen and start posting our Special Scottish Gift Box with your loved one in mind.
We have been incredibly lucky to meet a range of fantastically interesting customers who are often in Edinburgh for the first time. They are gushing about their experience of seeing the city and meeting Scots. Lucky us for being part of their holiday story when they return home.
We are fortunate to have been visited by Janet Christie of Scotland on Sunday who has translated our journey at Cranachan & Crowdie into a poetic, quirky story. We hope you’ll have a read and then pop in to see us.
Our Scottish Year of Food and Drink in 2015 was such a huge success that we are continuing our producer showcases throughout 2016!
Our weekly spotlight on individual producers is a chance for you to celebrate Scotland’s natural larder and quality produce by meeting producers face to face and tasting their products for the first (or second or third) time.
If you’re like us, climbing tall buildings and hills around Edinburgh isn’t always at the top of your To Do list.
Here’s an exciting opportunity to change that!
The Monumental Challenge is an invite to local Edinburghers between October 8 and December 8 2016 to climb all 430 steps to the top of the Scott Monument on Princes Street and Nelson Monument on Calton Hill.
With us so far?
