The Galway Food Company currently sells an All Butter Shortbread range with four varieties. A savoury and gluten free range are at development stage at present. We will then be looking at including other food products, all with Galway flavours, as part of The Galway Food Company brand.
Galway Bay Lavender
Our Lavender variety has proved to be a best-seller! The lavender is grown in Maree, Oranmore on the Galway Bay Lavender Farm, in fields that roll down to Galway Bay. Adding the lavender flowers has created a beautiful fragrant biscuit which evokes all the senses! We love it with homemade lemon curd and greek yoghurt as a dessert. A worthy member of our flagship range.
Our classic recipe is the flavour most people are looking for when they bite into a shortbread biscuit. One of the advantages of living in a small island in the middle of the Atlantic is the lush green pasture which has earned us the title of “The Emerald Isle”.
Our cows feed off the best and richest grass and as a result, the milk and butter are unsurpassed. So as with creamy Irish butter as its key ingredient, this all time classic has many fans! Why not try our Strawberry Shortcake with fresh strawberries and cream for an indulgent treat!
With the wild Atlantic on our doorstep, we looked to the sea for further inspiration. Foodies and health conscious the world over are aware of the high health benefits of Seaweed – it is a recognized superfood. Our Connemara Seaweed is harvested in Rossaveal, off the pristine shores of the Wild Atlantic Way.
We were keen to give our classic a savoury twist and in so doing create a beautiful seaweed shortbread that combines beautifully with our locally produced cheeses. The tangy saltiness of the seaweed with the hint of sweetness in the shortbread is a marriage made in food heaven. We love to eat ours with some irish smoked salmon, irish cheese and a seafood chowder.
While we are on the dairy theme, our chocolate shortbread is full of chocolate decadence, which we often source from local suppliers. How to add even more sparkle to a classic? Combine the buttery goodness with an indulgent treat and the answer is a chocoholic’s dream, little nuggets of delicious rich chocolate embedded in the biscuits themselves. They are seriously addictive! Just right with a latte or cappuccino!
Our products are stocked in over 65 stores throughout Ireland.
