Haggis

Haggis, the national dish, is a savoury pudding made with sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs, mixed with oatmeal, suet, onions, and spices. Its origins lie in the need to utilise all parts of the animal during times of scarcity. It’s a favourite of Scots, and was famously addressed by Robert Burns.

Ye Pow’rs wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o’ fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer,
Gie her a Haggis!

Address to a Haggis –
Robert Burns

Scotch pies

Small and savoury, filled with minced meat, typically lamb or beef, and seasoned with onions and spices. Enclosed in a shortcrust pastry, they were originally a convenient and portable food for farmers and labourers, and today remain a beloved snack and lunch item.

Cullen skink

A creamy soup made with smoked haddock, potatoes, onions, and cream, originates from the town of Cullen on the Moray Firth coast. The abundance of smoked haddock in the region led to its development as a hearty and flavourful soup, and it is now a popular dish throughout Scotland, especially in coastal areas.

Deep-fried mars bar

The deep-fried Mars bar, a controversial dessert consisting of a Mars chocolate bar coated in batter and deep-fried, is a relatively recent invention, believed to have originated in Scotland in the 1990s. Its exact origin is disputed, but it has become a symbol of Scottish “deep-fried everything” cuisine, a popular, albeit unhealthy, treat, especially among younger generations.

Scottish Porridge

Scottish porridge, a hearty breakfast dish made with oats, water, and salt, has been a staple food in Scotland for centuries. Its origins can be traced back to the Neolithic period, when oats were a readily available and nutritious source of energy for the Scottish people. Today, Scottish porridge is a traditional and comforting breakfast dish, known for its warming properties and ability to keep you full for hours.

Shortbread

Shortbread, crumbly butter cookies made with flour, sugar, and butter, have been enjoyed in Scotland since the 12th century. Originally a luxury item reserved for special occasions, shortbread is now a popular treat in Scotland and is often served with tea or coffee. It is also a popular gift item.

Fish Supper

The fish supper, consisting of fried fish (typically haddock or cod) and chips, served wrapped in paper or newspaper, has been a popular takeaway food in Scotland since the 19th century. The dish originated in England but quickly gained popularity in Scotland, and today is a beloved national dish, often enjoyed as a casual meal or takeaway treat. The truth is, while it might be loved across the UK, the Scots do it better.

Cranachan

Cranachan, a traditional Scottish dessert made with whipped cream, honey, raspberries, and toasted oatmeal, has been enjoyed in Scotland since the 16th century. The name comes from the Gaelic word “crann,” meaning “tree,” referring to the oats used in the dish.

Whisky

Whisky, Scotland’s national drink, is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Scotland is renowned for its production of single malt whiskies, a tradition dating back centuries with the earliest written record dating back to 1494. Whisky is enjoyed worldwide for its complex flavours.

Irn-Bru

Irn-Bru, a bright orange, non-alcoholic carbonated soft drink, is Scotland’s most popular soft drink and is often referred to as the “national drink” of Scotland. It was created in 1901 by a Scottish pharmacist named Robert Barr and originally marketed as a medicinal tonic. Scotland is one of the few countries in the world where Coca Cola is not the number one selling soft drink – that’s right in Scotland, it’s Irn-Bru.

This icon pack offers a journey through the flavours of Scotland. Each item tells a story, a testament to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Scottish people, and a celebration of their rich and vibrant food culture. Is there anything you think we missed?
