While I was in Scotland I had to try what is know as “Scotland’s other national drink”. The national drink of Scotland is whiskey.
Irn-Bru is orange colored, but I did not really see the color since I drank it out of a can. I found the drink a bit sweet with a very strong taste. I had to drink it slow.
Here is a picture of the counter man getting ready to wrap up my fish and chips. I used this picture in my post A Long Shortest Day.
It was raining so we went back to my colleagues car to enjoy our delicious lunch of fish and chips. The fish was really good. I would definitely put this near the top of my list of best fish and chips. Much better than what I got at the airport in London. See: Long Travel Day
Here is another picture of the Irn-Bru can. I first learned about this drink when we visited our first customer of the day. The customer and my colleague were talking about this being my first visit to Scotland. The customer said something about me making sure I tried something before I left. It took them both saying the name several times for me to understand what they were talking about. I am not too good with Scottish accents.
If you get a chance to try an Irn-Bru, don’t miss out. It definitely has a unique taste.
