The Scottish Gift Set includes:
Said to be Scotland’s most ancient cheese, Scottish Crowdie dates back as far as Viking and Pictish times when it was made by every crofter in the Highlands of Scotland.
The more traditional method for making Crowdie in those days would be to slowly warm a bucket of milk (straight from the cow) by the fire until it soured and curdled. Interestingly, Thistle was historically used as a form of rennet. We think you might enjoy our method more. The cheese was often eaten on oatcakes before a Ceilidh as it was said to alleviate the effects of whisky drinking!
The kit contains enough ingredients to make 12 batches. Each batch is around 900g…900g is a lot of cheese! There’s recipes for a smooth and creamy version, and a firm and crumbly version. Scottish Crowdie can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes, it’s a hugely versatile cheese!
▪ Sheep Dip and Pig’s Nose Whisky Miniatures 2x5cl
Sheep Dip is a multiple award winning combination of 16 different Highland, Island and Speyside single malts aged between 8 and 21 years, married together in specially selected first fill oak casks, and Pig’s Nose has a satisfying smoothness that is achieved through combining oak-aged Speyside, Islay and Lowland malts with superior Invergordan gentle grain whiskies.
▪ Cheese Board H1.5cm W: 40cm L: 12.5cm
A handy base for a gift package or for serving food. At 40cm this board has a wide variety of uses and the dimensions to make a bit of a statement. It is made from environmentally sustainable bamboo which is light, strong and durable.
