Loving Our Environment …
While many chocolatiers use cheap and easy UHT cream or sour blended supermarket creams for their production, Iain uses a sweet fresh cream from a single herd of Scottish Friesian cows. Think of it as the “single malt” of the dairy world. Iain sources this cream from a local, family-run dairy here in Perthshire, which focuses strongly on the welfare of their animals.
The Scottish Heather Honey used in some of Iain’s recipes comes from a local, small-scale apiarist. The Scottish government and the Scottish Beekeepers’ Association work closely with individual and commercial beekeepers throughout Scotland to implement The Honey Bee Health Strategy – an initiative to achieve a sustainable and healthy population of honey bees for pollination and honey production in Scotland.
