Have you heard about our locally-sourced Glebe House wine?
Traditionally made just outside of Ecclefechan (only 10 miles away from Gretna Green!), this wine captures the authentic taste of Scotland; with blossoms, berries, fruits leaves and even tree sap!
Combine a bottle of Glebe House, or any other of our aromatic wines, with a gift box of delicious truffles and treats from our Sweetie Shop chocolate counter.

Whisky, Gin & More!
Gretna Green is famous for its whisky and whisky liqueurs, and you can find many of them at the Foodhall! With plenty of Scottish classics from all the best Whisky regions, like Dalmore and Lauders, your food and drink Christmas gift shopping just got a step easier by keeping all your favourites in one place. Though, if you’re especially keen on traditional Scottish tipples, be sure to visit our Whisky & Gifts Shop for an enormous collection of whiskies to browse and buy during your Famous Blacksmiths Shop adventure.
Gretna Green is becoming more and more well-known for its fantastic variety of unique highland and English gins, available both online and in-store. Discover the brilliantly quirky flavours of Edinburgh Gin, or the intricately-designed bottles of Boë, distilled in the small Scottish city of Stirling.
Did you know? Old Curiosity’s gin changes colour when mixed with tonic water!
Pour a little into a glass of Fever Tree tonic water to create your very own magical, colourful gin cocktail. A wonderfully unique present idea for any gin-lover this Noel!
As well as whisky and gin, the Foodhall also stocks plenty of other brilliant beverages and drink adornments. Have you ever tried rhubarb rum?
