    The Macsween family has been making its authentic and award-winning haggis in Edinburgh for over 50 years. Originally consumed locally, Macsween haggis is now known and enjoyed throughout the world. Macsween also makes tasty black pudding and is proud to have created the classic vegetarian haggis, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2009.

    Haggis is indelibly linked to Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns. Born on 25th January 1759 in Alloway, Ayrshire, his birth is celebrated at Burns suppers throughout the world, where haggis is consumed with great gusto and great ceremony. In 2009, the Macsween family, like many others, will mark Burns' 250th birthday with laughter, poetry, haggis, dancing and general merriment. Indeed, the whole of Scotland is celebrating 2009 as the year of Homecoming.

    While famously seen as the culinary centrepiece of Burns Night, haggis is now popular as a nutritious and easy to use ingredient throughout the year, enlivening canapes, pakoras, lasagne, pies and many other recipes.
