Here at Keevils we are very proud to be the sole London stockist of Macsween haggis.
Macsween have been making haggis ever since butcher Charlie Macsween opened his first shop in Edinburgh’s Bruntsfield back in 1953.
He started making haggis to his family recipe and sold it as a side-line to the other meat and poultry in the shop.
Charlie’s son John took over the family business in 1975 and decided to concentrate on building up the haggis side of the business rather than the butchery shop.
By 1996 Macsween were one of the best known haggis brands, and to keep up with increasing demand John closed his father’s shop and oversaw the construction of the world’s first purpose-built haggis factory.
Today Macsween are synonymous with haggis, and it is being eaten in bigger quantities than ever before.
We deliver Macsween all across the UK, and although many customers have it as a regular treat, we sell most haggis around Burn’s Night.
Burn’s Night is celebrated annually on the 25th January, which was the birthday of the famous 18th Century Scottish poet Robert Burns, who loved his country and wrote an 8-verse poem in honour of the national dish – Ode to a Haggis.
Today, Burn’s Night is observed all around the world and is used almost as a national day, and a time to celebrate all things Scottish. This of course involves eating Haggis, which is usually served with mashed turnips and potatoes (‘neeps and tatties’).
As well as our UK customers we receive orders from as far away as Norway, Kazakhstan, and Saudi Arabia from people who arrange for us to deliver Macsween haggis to a UK address to then to be shipped to them. Get in touch if you’d like to make a similar arrangement.
If you’re enjoying haggis for Burn’s Night or any other time throughout the year, if you order with us we can deliver authentic Macsween haggis, fresh to your door.
