Walkers Shortbread Limited is a family company founded in 1898 in the picturesque village of Aberlour, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.  Today, Walkers Shortbread is still made by traditional methods, using the original Walker family recipe, and is guaranteed to contain no artificial flavourings, colourings or additives.

In the heart of beautiful Speyside in the Scottish Highlands, sits the village of Aberlour where the Walker family has been producing the world’s finest shortbread for over a hundred years.

The company was founded by Joseph Walker in 1898 and today his grandchildren and great grandchildren carry forward the tradition of baking the finest products – using his original recipes.

Walkers shortbread is baked as it always has been, using pure creamery butter, flour, sugar and salt.  A wide range of varieties and sizes makes Walkers the most extensive selection of pure butter shortbread available – a favourite at home and abroad.

Like shortbread, oatcakes have been enjoyed in Scotland for generations.  Bake to a traditional recipe, they are made almost entirely from either coarse or fine-grained oats.  Their texture and nutty flavour make a delicious accompaniment to both sweet and savoury toppings.

Just as irresistible, Walkers delicious biscuits are baked with generous helpings of fruit, spices, nuts and crunchy Demerara sugar.  Perfect as a gift or a self-indulgent treat.

Walkers Scottish fruit cakes are also perennial favourites.  Packed full of succulent fruits, spices and nuts, they are baked with care and patience to create a home-baked texture. 

In addition, Walkers produce a range of mince and mini mince pies especially for Christmas. 

Their delicious Ecclefechan tarts are year-round favourites – deep cups of butter pastry filled to the brim with a delicious mixture of juicy sultanas, cherry pieces and topped with chopped almonds.

Like all Walkers products, they are filled with natural goodness, free from artificial additives, colourings and flavourings and are suitable for vegetarians.  Walkers shortbread, oatcakes and biscuits are also certified Kosher OUD.

Walkers Shortbread introduced Certified Gluten Free range ensuring everyone can enjoy the simplicity and luxurious taste sensation that sets it apart from anything else. The new gluten free range includes three equally delicious options - Gluten Free Pure Butter Shortbread, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread and Gluten Free Ginger and Lemon Shortbread.

In its distinctive tartan packaging, Walkers range of products is packed with Scottish character – both inside and out.  The very name is a sign of quality and excellence.

The only food manufacturing company to have won the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement on four occasions.  Walkers still bake in small batches to guarantee the classic flavour and appearance for which they are famed.

Walkers were granted the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen in 2017 for the supply of shortbread this was added to their 2002 warrant for the supply of oatcakes.
