Dean's Shortbread ... and this may possibly be the best shortbread I have ever had.
Last weekend we went out to Huntly to visit Huntly Castle and take in the sites of the town. And guess what else is located in Huntly? That's right, Dean's Shortbread Factory, along with a gift shop and bulk-packaged shortbread biscuits.
Thanks, Emily, for introducing us to Dean's and recommending we stop at the factory.
These are biscuits that are set aside at the factory and placed in simple, inexpensive bags, instead of the beautiful packaging you find at the stores. And did I mention that the bulk items are sold at terrific prices? If you are ever in Huntly, make sure you take the time to stop by.
They have a little cafe, but it was closing when we arrived at the end of the day. There is also a viewing gallery, where you can look over the factory productions, but they don't make shortbread on the weekends, so all we saw was a dark room.
I don't know how easy Dean's is to find in the US, but I know they sell some of their products on Amazon.com. You really must check out this wonderful taste of Scotland.
