Sent a bag of dry peat to my brother. He lit a small piece in his man-cave and raved about the scent, saying it was far better than hickory or mesquite. Threw in a set of Scottish dialect coasters, too- he and his wife loved 'em!
From the smell of the smoke coming from a cottage in a Highland glen, to the lingering after taste of a smoky single malt, there's nothing quite like Scottish peat.
Here in the US using peat to heat your home is impractical due to the cost of shipping it from Scotland. But luckily, just burning a small piece will fill a room with the unforgettable smell of peat. With your order we have included suggestions for burning it—from ways of scenting the air, to flavoring a nice piece of salmon or beef.
Caledonia's Best is the sole importer of Scottish Burning Peat to the US—ye canna get it anywhere else!
Each bag weighs approximately two pounds.
Bought a bag to use for whisky tasting presentations. I usually burn a chunk before the evening begins like you would a stick of incense, to set the mood. When someone who has never smelled a peat fire gets a whiff and recognizes the smell from the taste of a peated single malt scotch whisky and they start making the connections, it is wonderful.
