Mother’s Day – with a Stag’s Breath twist

Mother’s Day – with a Stag’s Breath twist

Mother’s Day 2021 has rolled around, the day we thank our mums, our step-mums, our mums in law, our surrogate mums and anyone else that is our ‘go to’ for love and encouragement. The best present is often ‘just bring yourself’ but, unfortunately, the days of being able to hug our loved ones are a bit away yet. So, below, we have put together some ideas – inspired by Stag’s Breath and nicely teaming up with our heartwarming honey and whisky liqueur – for what we can pop in the post to speak our love.

Pamper Mum with Scottish Heather

Heather honey is so important in the crafting of Stag’s Breath. And living in the Highlands we love it when we can walk the springy heather clad hills in late summer. Both in the warm, honeyed liqueur and in our lives, heather is of prime importance and much appreciated in all its purple glory. Anything that reminds us of its fabulous aroma is OK with us and would be a great present for a loved mum for Mother’s Day 2021.

Handmade in the Highlands of Scotland

Highland Soaps Company soap is handmade by a centuries-old, traditional process. In this slow method of soap production, it takes us around four weeks to cure each carefully prepared batch. Our handmade cold-process soaps are mild and moisturising on sensitive, dry skin.

We use organic and natural ingredients and sustainable packaging in a small-scale batch process to create what we believe are the finest and most ethical soap and skincare products made in Scotland.

Vegetarian friendly

The products and raw ingredients are Cruelty-Free and not tested on animals. With the exception of a few which contain organic honey, they are suitable for vegans, too.


Hip Flask for the Outdoor Mum

Stag’s Breath is absolutely ideal as an outdoor drink. Not too strong which can be a bad thing on a cold, wet day (strangely) and just enough to bring a glow to a weary body. We are quite woman-heavy at Meikles of Scotland Limited and we all like to walk the hills with a wee flask of medicinal Stag’s Breath for emergencies. We are most excited when we see a flask that is obviously designed to be more suited to the female of the species and therefore the ideal answer to a Mother’s Day present together with a bottle of their favourite warming tipple STAG’S BREATH LIQUEUR.

For the strong mum in your life - and which one isn't - the perfect hip flask for her outdoor life.

This amazing design is perfect for the mum who loves all things skull.


“The pocket Hip Flask Company stock a range of female hip flasks. These include luxury leather, shiny English pewter and easy to maintain stainless steel.
There are an increasing number of females hip flasks available and we have Female Hip Flasksa massive collection for you to look at. Women love the idea of carrying a stylish hip flask filled with their favourite tipple.
So whether you like all that is bling or just want something that is a little bit more feminine we think our ladies hip flask will go down a treat.”

Honey to Keep Mum Sweet

Honey is such an important part of our lives as we create the unique taste of our Stag’s Breath Liqueur with its musky nose of comb heather honey. The honey brings warmth and smoothness and reminds us of the sunny days of August as the bees make their busy ways across the Highland heather-clad hills. We do have honey suppliers in the Cairngorm National Park but many are very small and this is the time of year when bees are just beginning to get going again and local honey is still a few months in the future.

The Scottish Bee Company was founded by Iain and Suzie Millar in 2017. They felt strongly about the UK’s declining bee population and decided to do something to help. Their passion and determination prompted them to adopt some bees, hire a team of expert bee farmers and brought them together in the heather covered hills of Scotland to produce uniquely flavorful honeys that evoke a sense of Scotland’s unspoiled wilderness.

Perfect as a gift for a foodie friend or family member, mix and match from The Scottish Bee Company’s heather or blossom honeys with our pure Scottish honey duo. Both jars are 340g.

Beautifully packaged in our bespoke gift packaging, each duo comes with a pack of wildflower seeds for the recipient to sow. Wildflowers are an important source of forage for bees and other pollinators so every pack sown helps to boost the pollinator population.


Gorgeous Glasses for Stag's Breath enjoyment

These glasses are a perennial favourite of ours. They just seem to suit Stag’s Breath down to the ground. Nice to hold, nice to look at and nice to drink out of and just that bit different – which we also like.

The Book of the Name (Stag's Breath) for Mum

So, a lovely idea that mum can settle down for the Sunday evening with her wee dram of Stag’s Breath and an iconic novel. Within the pages of Whisky Galore lie the origins of the name of our famous Scottish liqueur. Stag’s Breath was the favourite dram of the islanders in the book – and you will need to read it to find out more. There have been two films made of the book, one quite recently starring Eddie Izzard, but, unfortunately, the inventive whisky names from the imagination of Compton Mackenzie were lost in translation.

Whisky Galore (Hardback)
Compton Mackenzie (author)
Wartime food rationing is bad enough, but when the whisky supplies run out on the Hebridean islands of Great and Little Todday, nothing seems to go right. Then the fifty-thousand-bottle cargo of the shipwrecked S. S. Cabinet Minister brings salvation – in its most giddily intoxicating form.


And what if she is the Mum that has everything?

Well, you might need to wait till you win the Lottery but
here is something very special for
Mum’s Stag’s Breath Liqueur.



Asprey’s famous range of animal head decanters are exactingly handmade in our London workshops above New Bond Street. Each is made using the finest materials by means of a painstaking process. The lead-free crystal is melted and blown only four times a year, and thanks to the difficulty of achieving a product that reaches our standards, the failure rate (even with the most skilled of craftspeople) is 90% or higher, given the Asprey criteria for quality. The sterling silver stopper is meticulously hand-carved; we offer a range of creatures to add zoological variety to your drinks cabinet or bar.
