The rest is geography.  They started the winery with a bottle, a book and a stick in 1987. By 2010 they had opened their first café and bought a new wheelbarrow.

Chandon Macaron at Cardo


Handmade Macaron Set £9.90

Since Paula and Herve moved to Scotland over 25 years ago, they could not come across a perfectly made macaron, one of their favourite delicacies. In 2013 they decided that instead of continuing their search they would start to produce their own.  So why Chardon? Well, the name Chardon translates to Thistle. They wanted to dedicate our Macarons to the wonderful country they call home, and what is more fitting than the French name for the beautiful Flower of Scotland.

Baking is a passion for the Cardo team. Their wood fired clay oven doesn’t just create the magical Cardo pizzas, but also bakes a selection of delicious sourdough loaves.  At Cardo Bakery, they use French Appalachian Flour with no additives, to bake their sourdough loaf. Their bakery products including the fabulous macarons, are all available in their restaurant next door too.

The author Helen has had wee stories about Oor Haggis in her head and shared them with people for years. Helen always said she needed to put them into book form. Luckily, the lockdown gave her the time and opportunity to pull these stories together and do the illustrations to go with them.  The book is written in a tongue in cheek, matter of fact way including links with the whisky industry and illustrations to colour in.
