A warm welcome from all SEVEN producers
of Scottish Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil

 

Coming ourselves from all corners of Scotland, 
we've made it our mission to get more bottles of
our 'liquid gold' cold-pressed rapeseed oil into
kitchens all across Scotland and beyond!

Rapeseed oil is extracted from the seeds of rapeseed plants, from the same brassica family as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. Harvested in late summer, rapeseed plants are the ones that you often see flowering bright yellow in fields during May.

Scottish rapeseed oil is tasty and versatile - ideal for roasting, frying, baking and drizzling. It has low food miles compared to other oils and is celebrated for its health benefits as it has less unhealthy saturated fat than all other cooking oils and fats. 

It is also high in naturally occurring antioxidents and is a great source of plant based Omega 3 so can help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels as part of
a healthy balanced diet - beneficial for heart health.
And it is a rich source of vitamin E. We all cold-press our oil because by not adding heat or chemicals we are able to ensure that it the oil is treated more gently and retains all of its natural goodness and great taste

Some of the very best chefs and enthusiastic foodies already rave about Scottish Rapeseed Oil and now we want you to see what all the buzz is about. Have a read of some of our recipes, read more from our supporters, find out where your nearest stockist is, and follow us
on social media to get involved with great prizes
and competitions.

 

We are working to highlight just WHY Scottish cold-pressed rapeseed oil is the bees knees!

Why


 

Here are just a few reasons why Scottish Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil is in our kitchens and why we think it should be in yours.

 
RAPESEED_LINE_AW1-02.png
 

  • The taste is more subtle and nutty than other oils -  so it's great in cakes, salads, stir-frys and much more
  • It has a higher flashpoint making it more flexible for higher temperature cooking
  • It is a healthy alternative with an excellent fatty acid profile and antioxidant activity

  • It is produced by Scottish farmers so when you buy it you are supporting the Scottish economy
  • Because it is produced in Scotland it travels very few 'food miles' to reach your kitchen
  • The farming of oilseed rape in Scotland is sustainable and environmentally sound

INTRODUCING THE SEVEN PRODUCERS
OF SCOTTISH COLD-PRESSED RAPESEED OIL

The desire to tell the whole country how great Scottish Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil is has been driven by all eight of the producers in Scotland whose passion for farming and for producing a delicious and versatile product led them to develop their own very special and unique brands of Scottish rapeseed oil.

Wherever you live in Scotland, there is a brand local to you! 
Find out more about our producers here and visit their websites to learn where you can get your oil change!

 

Black and Gold

The home of Black & Gold is in the fertile county of East Lothian where we have been growing oilseed rape on our farm, Stevenson Mains, for over 25 years. Black & Gold is one of the finest finishing oils produced in Scotland and we are proud of our single-farm provenance. It is used by the most famous chefs in the country. Stuart Muir, Executive Head chef of Harvey Nichols 4th Floor Restaurant believes it is in a class of its own “a superb flavour, an amazing rich, golden colour."

Cullisse

As the most northerly cold pressed rapeseed oil, Cullisse Highland Rapeseed Oil benefits from the unique micro-climate and fertile soils of Easter Ross in the Scottish Highlands where the naturally healthy properties of the rapeseed are nurtured in the seed pods during the extra long days of light that distinguish a Highland Summer.

Described by Nigel Slater on his Simple Cooking programme as “very special” Cullisse Highland Rapeseed Oil is silky smooth and buttery, with hints of asparagus and freshly picked garden peas. Equally suited to dressing salads or roasting potatoes and with 50% less saturated fat and 9 times more Omega 3, 6 and 9 than most olive oils, Cullisse is healthy, versatile and downright delicious!

Cullisse is Bee friendly with all seed neonicotinoid free. The bi-product from pressing is fed to the farm’s cows and 20p from every litre sold is donated to Farm Africa, the charity that sparked the Cullisse Highland Rapeseed Oil dream.

Mackintosh of Glendaveny

At Mackintosh of Glendaveny, we set our hearts on producing the great local Scottish alternative to olive oil.

All the natural goodness, golden colour and great taste are retained in our oil as we add nothing to it and take nothing away. It is just simply 100% pure healthy home grown oil, pressed and bottled on our family farm.

Ola

We, John and Connie Sorrie, were inspired in 2008 to launch Ola Extra Virgin
Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil to give the North East of Scotland a healthier, locally produced alternative to olive oil.

We grow the rapeseed on our farm near Inverurie and once harvested cold press and bottle the oil ourselves. The countryside and climate of Aberdeenshire creates the unique terroir to give Ola its light nutty flavour which makes it ideal for all types of cooking.
