Cairn o' Mohr Ltd

Berry Christmas Wine £8.85

Sweet and spicy. A fruity blend of Scottish berries all jollied up with winter spices and chopped ginger. Have a Berry Christmas and enjoy this wine at the Christmas table.

To be served frosty. Ho ho, ho!

Founders Ron and Judith Gillies first met playing poker on a river boat in the steaming mosquito-infested mangroves of the Panamanian jungle. Their eyes met and they knew then that they were going to end up making fruit wines somewhere in the middle of Scotland for a living. 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.
