Savouring Tradition: Exploring the Cultural Significance of Haggis

Although Haggis is widely known, it still holds an air of mystery for many individuals. Our goal with this guide is to clarify the details surrounding this iconic dish by giving insight into its history, ingredients, preparation, and cultural significance.

What is Haggis made from?

We take pride in our traditional haggis recipe that has been passed down over four generations. The main ingredient in a traditional haggis is sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs, mixed with oats, onions, and spices. Our Farmer's Son haggis is made with a blend of pork, beef, and ox heart to create an incredibly rich and full-bodied product. We use a unique combination of spices to give it a distinct taste, without any artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. Our haggis is also free from added sugar and dairy. The dish is made by cooking the ingredients inside either a sheep's stomach or a synthetic casing, resulting in something truly delicious.
