Stag Bakeries


Based on the scenic Isle of Lewis, Stag Bakeries is a family-run bakery with a heritage dating back to 1885. Traditional recipes and time-honoured methods are still at the heart of each product their team of skilled craft bakers make. Stag specialises in producing premium bakery snack products such as savoury biscuits, cheese straws, traditional Scottish shortbread, and speciality fruit cakes. Each product is made using the finest ingredients and nothing is rushed. The result is an award-winning product range trusted on quality and provenance.

The bakery’s signature product is the Stornoway Water Biscuit, made using a recipe passed down the generations and a versatile carrier for cheese, meats, fish, and pâté. As well as the ever popular Original variety, the bakery produces water biscuits in several flavours and two different sizes to provide cheeseboard lovers with a wide array of snacking options.

Stag are proud to represent the Outer Hebrides and provenance is very important to them. Their bakers are always looking to incorporate their location into their range and one such product is the award-winning Seaweed Water Biscuits. Named Best Scottish Speciality Product in 2013, the product pairs Stag’s classic water biscuit recipe with seaweed sourced locally to provide a truly unique flavour that is full of character. A great option for canapés, these biscuits offer a great platform for fantastic snacking combinations.

Stag’s newest product launch is the Hebridean Baker biscuit range, a collaboration with the Hebridean Baker himself, Coinneach MacLeod. Coinneach is the author of two cookbooks about baking and the Hebridean way of life, and his Tik Tok videos have motivated followers around the globe to learn about the Scottish islands. The Hebridean Baker range consists of six varieties of moreish sweet biscuits sure to provide comfort and indulgence.
