Walkers Shortbread of Scotland

Walkers has been making original and genuine pure butter Scottish Shortbread for 120 years. At a time when authenticity is of upmost importance, we are still a family-run business, staying true to our original, 4 ingredient recipe: butter, flour, sugar and salt. We bake our Shortbread in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. In its distinctive tartan packaging, Walkers has many varieties and sizes to choose from, whether it be the traditional Fingers, Rounds, and Petticoat Tails to Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread. We also make a wide range of other Scottish delicacies such as mince pies, tarts and cakes. Our products contain no artificial flavors, colors or additives, and are certified Kosher OUD. The name Walkers is recognized as a mark of excellence worldwide, and a true, Scottish classic.
