      Scots Highland Christmas

      In the highlands of Scotland
      Our Christmas we spent
      North to our Bothy
      In a Red Sleigh we went

      Our beds were in cupboards
      With a glass ceiling pane
      To gaze at the stars
      And the sleet, snow and rain

      On the morning of Christmas
      There were presents galore
      Under our branch tree
      And our stockings had more

      We had Champagne at brunch
      Our pancakes to toast
      Then 8 hours to cook
      Our Christmas Pork Roast

      Och laddie go north to the sea!!

      ... the indigenous love of spirits is the food
      it generates. It's all a bit of a Foodies paradise. Some great food brands had
      their genesis in these parts. Baxters Foods, Walkers Shortbread, Glenfiddich
      whisky and the list goes on. It is truly Scotland's larder. Oh and yes, whisky
      is a food for those who might have been confused most all of them were or still
      are, family businesses being run by the 3rd, 4th or even 5th generations.
      Baxters is a case in ...

      ... to the Scot’s use of peat to dry the barley after malting. However, visits to Highland distilleries taught us that the majority of Scottish distillers stopped using peat in the 1960s. In fact, we discovered that the Highland distilleries produce a rather sweet and fruity whiskey with no smoky taste at all - who knew?

      Now that I am acquainting myself with the area ...

      ... English or Scottish breakfast we had been eating every morning.

      Next stop: Macallan Estate, the home of our favorite single-malt whisky. We arrived for the 11AM tour and met our tour guide, Angus, an 18-year old with an impressive knowledge of whisky in general and the Macallan process, despite having worked there only a few months. Angus led us through the entire process from growing ...
