World’s most expensive haggis unveiled in time for Burns Night
Haggis specialist Macsween of Edinburgh has created the world’s most expensive haggis as Scotland sets to prepare for Burns Night.
Costing £4,000, the haggis is created using the unique Macsween family recipe infused with other flavours from around the world. This includes Highland Wagyu beef raised on a Perthshire farm; white summer truffle from France and black pepper, also known as tellicherry, from India that can only be grown at a latitude of 2,000-3,000 feet above sea level. As if this were not extravagant enough, the haggis comes with edible 24-carat gold to sprinkle on top.
“Robert Burns’ famous poem transformed the humble haggis into a world icon and, this year, we wanted to put a luxury twist on the occasion,” said James Macsween, managing director and director of innovation at Macsween.
“This latest creation demonstrates the dedication and craft that go into every single one of our products. Good haggis-making is an art and we wanted to highlight this. At Macsween, we’re passionate about offering all of our customers only the best high-quality, delicious products made to the family recipe.”
The luxury haggis, weighing nearly 4kg, took the Macsween team more than five weeks to complete, from conception to production. It is presented in a handmade wooden cask and is available on commission only.
“But don’t worry if your budget doesn’t stretch to £4,000 this year,” added Macsween.
“Our diverse range of quality, versatile, award-winning products offer something for everyone. Haggis is a delicious dish, which can be enjoyed by the family all year round.”
