Royals get to taste a Scotch Beef pie

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been treated to a specially made Strathearn pie on their most recent royal tour of Perthshire.

William and Kate described the pie as delicious after a tasting session at The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery in Crieff. The pie was produced by local catering company Wilde Thyme, and was made from Scotch Beef, Glenturret Scotch whisky and locally grown vegetables.

The pie aims to celebrate the Strathearn area with its strong whisky and agricultural links. Crieff is also an historic cattle trading town and where the Scotch Beef brand evolved.

Andrew Hamer, managing director of Comrie-based Wilde Thyme, attended the event alongside butcher Gary Conacher, of Simon Howie Butchers, and Strathearn-based beef farmer Matthew Mauchlen, of Woodburn Farm, near Crieff.
