With Halloween only a few weeks away, why not treat yourself with these grown up sweets (and a gin) from a range of Scottish producers?

Tantrum Doughnuts

The 2021 Halloween doughnuts are: Pumpkin Brûlée, Salted Caramel Pretzel Ring, Toffee Apple ‘Old Fashioned’, Spiced Chai Ring, Banoffee Pie Cheesecake and Vegan Pumpkin Dulce De Leche.

The Highland Chocolatier

The Highland Chocolatier

Perhaps Scotland's best known chocolatier, Iain Burnett has had extensive training in the art of chocolatiering, studying at schools in Belgium, Switzerland and France and now is sharing this with the nation at his Highland Chocolatier store.

There is very little he doesn’t know about how to make a good chocolate – which includes his multiple award winning Velvet Truffle as well as internationally renowned range of fresh cream truffles and spiced pralines.

For Halloween, why not treat yourself to the Autumn Gems Selection?

Inside there's 20 chocolates with flavours such as Iain's award-winning Velvet Truffles and a 'textural tribute to the season' with crunchy Cocoa Nib Pralines and golden Sea Salted caramel-filled hearts.



Chocolatia was set up by Gleneagles chocolatier, Chloe Oswald, during lockdown last year after being furloughed from her job.

Initially she thought that they would be back at work full time in February and that she could enjoy the bumper chocolate selling periods of Christmas and Valentines and in her words, "hit the ground running."

Misty Isle Spookily Spiced gin

Last year, the team behind Misty Isle Gin launched a spookily spiced gin just in time for Halloween.

Complete with a spooky back story, the gin is inspired by ghosts that apparently haunt the island.

With notes of spiced pumpkin seeds, the gin is available now and ideal for seasonal G&Ts or gin cocktails.

Priced at £34, buy it online from the Isle of Skye Distillers website.
