Red Legged Partridge

Raised in a hatchery and released in early spring, Red Leg Partridge spend approximately 6 months living in the wild. It is during this time that they acquire their naturally wild flavor and signature delicate taste.

Wood Pigeon

Wood Pigeons live in wooded areas in all parts of Scotland and are shot year-round. Their dark meat is similar to that of Red Grouse, but not as ‘gamey,’ and the breast makes for a particularly splendid appetizer.

Wild Rabbit

Wild Brown Rabbit from Scotland is shot in the rolling hills of Perthshire. Brown rabbit has a slightly darker meat than the more conventional white farmed rabbit. The taste is delicately gamey without being too strong. This is a refreshing change from the bland, chicken-like meat that is usually available from the farmed variety.
