Walker family started baking shortbread

It was over a one hundred twenty-five years ago that the Walker family started baking shortbread in the Speyside village of Aberlour where they remain to this day.

Walkers shortbread

Though the Walker family have added many new products to their range during the last century, each and every one holds to those original values of quality and natural goodness.

Walkers quality and natural goodness

Joseph Walker founded the company when he opened his village bakery in 1898; now it is his grandchildren and great grandchildren that continue the tradition of fine baking that he started. In fact, the founder’s personal guarantee is still marked on every pack to confirm that Walker’s products are made with only the finest ingredients obtainable.

Walker’s products are sold all over the world

Though increased demand means that we’ve had to modernise our equipment, we still use the same wonderfully simple recipe that Joseph would recognise were he to visit our bakery tomorrow. It is only by baking in small batches that we can ensure that classic taste for which Walker’s are famed. As it always has been, our shortbread is made using only four ingredients: flour, pure creamery butter, sugar and salt.

It’s rich taste and moist texture is a result of Walker’s expert Scottish baking.
