When one thinks of Scotch Whisky and Confectionery it might seem that they are poles apart. This is not the case however if the right marriage of interests takes place!
Could the unique taste of a single malt whisky influence a product?
The answer is obviously yes when it comes to chocolate liqueurs, but Tom Gardiner has always had bigger ideas.
Tom Gardiner is head of the family company based in Lesmahagow - South Lanarkshire where they bring together the manufacture of high quality handmade fudge with the unique tastes of single malts from some of the best known distilleries in Scotland - Glenfarclas, Edradour and Tobermory to name just a few.
In developing this product line the company have designed packaging to reflect a quality image. Based on oval shaped tins, the graphics incorporate key features of the relevant distillery and background information.
Over a long number of years the Gardiner family name has grown not only in the UK through sales to established gift shops including Duty Free outlets, but widely in the International field where they now export to over 20 countries.
