What is the traditional food and drink in Scotland?
IT Project Team, New York,


Haggis is Scotlandís best-known regional dish. It is made from lambís offal (lungs, liver and heart) mixed with suet, onions, herbs and spices, all packed into a skin, traditionally made of a sheepís stomach.

Traditionally served on Burns' Night, the haggis is often accompanied by mashed potatoes and mashed turnips.


Whisky has been distilled in Scotland for hundreds of years. The Ancient Celts practiced the act of distilling and had an expressive name for the fiery liquid they produced Ė uisge beatha Ė the water of life.

Throughout the centuries, whisky has become inextricably woven into the fabric of Scotlandís history, culture and customs.

More information on Scotch whisky is available at The Scotch Whisky Heritage Center
