Macsween Haggis

If you were asked to list as many classic Scottish dishes as you could, what would come top?

A random selection of Scots were asked the same question at the beginning of food blog Munchies eclectic Guide to Scotland, and all came out with the same answer. Haggis, haggis and more haggis.

Yes, Scotland is a land of haggis lovers. Unsurprising, you might think. After all, it is not every dish that has its day. (Just try and host a Burns Supper without serving one of Macsween’s magnificent ceremonial haggis.)

But Scotland, like many other places in the world, has its own local food movement, capitalising on the cornucopia of world-class, Scottish produce. A decline in the popularity of classic, traditional dishes could well have been the anticipated result.

Instead Macsween haggis sales have steadily increased for a number of years. Love of haggis continues to grow overseas too. Haggis UK delivers thousands of traditional and canned haggis gifts to England, Europe and worldwide every year. And the number continues to grow.


So why are more people buying haggis?

The taste, of course, but it is more than that.

It is legendary haggis producers like Macsween, modern creative chefs like Thomas Kitchin and Shirley Stear, plus savvy eaters like you who have added fire to the world’s passion for haggis.


Haggis is a 21st century super food

Haggis is full of warm, earthly flavours that tantalise the tongue and make it an excellent dish with neeps and tatties if you wish to be traditional. And it can also be served in so many other ways.
