1. Choose a tasty haggis to be delivered to your door.

All the haggis we stock are made from the finest ingredients. For deliveries within the UK, we’d recommend Macsween, and for deliveries in Europe and overseas, Grants haggis and Stalys haggis maintain their warm, earthy flavours the best.

2. Pick a delivery date that suits you

Haggis UK has an international reputation for great service and delivery. Our purpose is to make sure your haggis arrives at your door when you need it, wherever you are in the world (with the exception of USA, Australia, Norway and Singapore). A recent client explains,

“Ordered and delivered very quickly we live in Cyprus and order this in for Burns night always excellent delivery.” 22/11/2017

3. Plan ahead if you’re outside the EU

Sadly Haggis UK are not permitted to send any meat products to the USA, Australia, Norway or Singapore. For other deliveries outside the EU, please check for local restrictions as we cannot be responsible for any possible customs delay, restrictions or additional fees. In these cases, we recommend that non-EU customers make arrangements to collect from us for onward transport to their destination as it provides the customer with direct control of their local clearances and delivery.

4. Cook up a feast

Despite the complexity of flavours within a haggis, it is really simple to prepare. Take a look at our guide on how to cook haggis. It includes helpful advice on portion sizes too.

5. Don’t forget the haggis-friendly condiments

Traditionally, haggis is served with a creamy whisky sauce, but if you’d like to try something a little different, we’d recommend a redcurrant sauce with a hint of whisky and horseradish. Sure to add a little spark to the evening.

Most importantly of all, have fun!
