Introducing McCaskie’s Wine Collection Introducing the McCaskie’s Wine Collection…in the 16 years that McCaskie’s have been licensed to stock and sell wines we have never produced a brochure to showcase our magnificent range of quality wines, until now! Our wine brochure features only some of the large selection we have in stock which we have put together by working with Corney and Barrow and Enotria World Wine, two of the UK’s leading wine importers. In addition to the wines, the brochure includes which meats we think will partner them best, something which we’re highly qualified to do! The McCaskie’s Wine Collection includes wine cases (6 bottles in a half case, 12 in a full case) containing specially selected whites, reds and roses. Some cases are available at a discount. The Stormy Cape Collection features fruity wines from South Africa, the great value for money McCaskie’s Own Labels, and top quality sparkling wines at very reasonable prices. Finally, we present the perfect wine partners for your meat of choice; chicken, pork, lamb, ham and beef.   Pre-pay and collect   We are now taking wine orders for the Festive Season. Introduced last year, our pre-paid order collection point at our new production area at the rear of our cafe car park, makes collections quick, easy and painless and frees up the shop for purchases and non-pre-paid orders. Order from the McCaskie’s Wine Collection online or order ...

The McCaskie’s 2018 Festive brochure has arrived and we are now taking orders at our shop in Wemyss Bay, by phone and online. We’ve studied our main high street competitors’ brochures for range and prices and while there’s not a big difference McCaskie's products are NOT made in massive factories for all the big boys. We source the ingredients and make the products to our award winning standard to offer our customers what we believe is the best available. Remember, fancy packaging and made up names don’t make it taste better - knowing your source does!   McCaskie’s food for Christmas and New Year   This year we are only offering Copas Very Special Turkeys for Christmas and are delighted to be selected as one of only a handful of Scottish stockists. They’re 100% free range, great value for money as they go further, cook quicker, are easy to carve and taste amazing. We source our beef exclusively from native breeds which are grass fed and matured in the traditional way on the bone for up to 40 days. Our Christmas Beef Collection include favourites such as rolled rib roasts, fillets of beef, silverside roasting joints and much more including, of course, Beef Wellington. This year the six Christmas hampers we are offering provide much more choice. Choose from a turkey breas...

​Typical Nigel - always running late! I just managed to get our sliced sausage and 5 brand new speciality sausages up to Forth Valley College for the Scottish Craft Butchers 2018 Speciality Sausage Evaluation and the Sliced Sausage regional heats judging. Just our normal slice and 5 brand new sausages (some made for the first time today). My favourite is my Caramel Apple Pie Pork sausage - a wee twist on the popular pork and apple, with toffee notes and a bit of spice. Then there’s the new Beef, Spiced Tomato and Caramelised Onion - I think this one will go down well. Then there’s our Jalapeño Chicken and Cheese Chicken sausage - a bit of kick but a very tasty sausage. This is the first of many new chicken sausages which are high in protein and low in fat and of course only contains British Chicken! The final two were a bit of a rush job as the deadline was approaching; an Andouille Sausage with pork, bacon and roasted peppers and a beef hotlink. I think there’s potential with a bit more work for these two. ...

​After 2 years since building our new modern production facility we’ve been working hard to achieve Safe and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA) which is the highest standard of hygiene, traceability and good practice for small to medium food businesses. Kirsty (a local lass and microbiology graduate) and our new Operations Manager spent 3 months training, putting systems of traceability and condensing all my paper work. In short, we are of the standard that all the major supermarkets require of their suppliers/potential suppliers. We did it!
 Well done to the whole team for their massive massive efforts to get us to this level. So now our customers can have the extra confidence that all McCaskie Butchers’ sausages, burgers and kebabs are produced in a SALSA approved facility. ...
