Guaranteed to give ambassadors of Scotland’s great haggis and Robert Burns the ‘chills’ – haggis ice cream is going down a treat at the Galloway County Fair for the first time this year.
A Castle Douglas dairy farm is the first to unveil this new flavour alongside their ‘neeps’ sorbet.
The distinctive frozen treats – which are served with an oatcake instead of the traditional wafer – are making their debut at this year’s Galloway Country Fair at Drumlanrig Castle. The special flavours have been created by Glen Urr to mark the Year of Food and Drink, with August’s theme being ‘Delicious Dairy’.
Glen Urr makes a variety of ice cream using milk and cream from its award-winning herd of Ayrshire Cows at Halmyre Farm in Haugh of Urr, Castle Douglas.
Company owner Jane Davidson explained the inspiration behind the new creations, which use real ingredients rather than synthetic flavourings, including haggis sourced locally from Grierson Brothers Family Butchers.
