Scottish Wines!

Cairn O' Mohr are now in their 30th year producing wines from their winery in East Inchmichael, which is just east of Perth. These are not your traditional wines as unfortunatly our climate does not allow us to grow vast vineyards of different grape varieties. Instead Cairn O' Mohr have used local Scottish Fruits typically grown within 20 miles of their winery. So you can't get much more local than that.

Our only concern when first trying these fruit wines were that they would be to sweet. But they are not Cairn O' Mohr have managed to balance there wines very well so it is all to easy to enjoy a few glasses.

We decide on a mixture of two whites, two reds, two rosés and two sparkling. For the white wines we chose the Goseberry and Elderflower wine and the Spring Oak Leaf. The Spring Oak is probably the most "wine" like of the bunch. The rosés are the very popular Raspberry wine and the Strawberry wine which is an award winning wine. The reds are the Elderberry wine defintly one to try if you are a fan of Port and also their Bramble wine. Finally on the bubbly front we have their Sparkling version of the Strawberry wine and if you are driving but fancy something a bit special why not try their Premium non alcohlic Sparkling Elderflower drink which has won multiple awards in the last four years.

All the wines are available by the glass and bottle apart from the bubbly stuff which is only available by the bottle. We also have two of their Ciders on draught as well which are worth a try if you like drier ciders.
