Cairngorm Brewery collaboration
At the end of 2012 we were asked if we'd be interested in producing mustard and chutney for Cairngorm Brewery in Aviemore. So, after making a few sample products, two of each were chosen. The brewery shop now stocks Blessed Thistle ale mustard and chutney; Black Gold mustard; and Nessie's Monster Mash chutney.
