An award-winning artisan craft smoked hot dog maker has created a limited-edition haggis infused hot dog for Burns’ Night 2020.
The Scottie Dog, from Dumfries & Galloway-based Brigston & Co, is available for purchase from 15 January until mid-February – the perfect ingredient to spice up Burns Suppers this year, with quality and provenance credentials at its core.
All Brigston & Co hot dogs are made with Scottish Farm Assured beef and pork, combined with a secret blend of ten herbs and spices. Earlier this year, the core product was recognised with a coveted Great Taste Award, widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and specialty food producers.
Husband and wife team, Claire Drysdale and Euan McGregor, aim to reinvent and change perceptions of the humble hot dog, previously perceived as a low quality, fast food product to a versatile gourmet food choice.
Claire, who brings 30 years’ experience in the catering industry to her new role as co-founder and director of Brigston & Co, said: ‘The Scottie Dog is our latest invention and a first of its kind in Scotland – perfect paired with some Lockerbie cheddar and chutney or a creamy whisky sauce with crispy onions.
‘A bit of a different take on your standard Burns Supper. If we have positive feedback, we may investigate launching this as a new product in our core range.’
The Scottie Dog is available to purchase as 4 x 100g fresh from Campbell’s Prime Meats online.
Brigston specialises in unique handmade craft smoked hot dog products made from Scottish Farm Assured beef and pork, delicately ground to create the perfect texture with a secret recipe of ten herbs and spices.
