PARTAN BREE

This classic Scottish Partan Bree or crab soup is a firm favourite in the Castle MacLellan kitchen. The beautifully subtle sweetness of crab pairs perfectly with floral notes of lightly pickled fennel.

Since 1982 we’ve been finding flavour from the lowlands of Dumfries and Galloway to the northern Scottish island of Orkney. Orkney’s pristine and nutrient rich waters make it a haven for crustaceans. This traditional recipe allows the ingredients to speak for themselves. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
