You will get the chance to find out about the history of shortbread, Scotland’s national biscuit, in our Visitor Centre, as well as learn how Dean’s has grown from local fund-raising activity to a global shortbread brand.
You can also spend time in our viewing gallery where you can watch our staff at work in the purpose-built bakery and see how Dean’s ‘melt in the mouth’ shortbread is made. You never know, you might even bump into our brand-new Dean’s mascot, Shortie!
Finally, before you leave us, you should definitely round off your visit in the gift shop, which stocks the full range of Dean’s products and a variety of other premium gifts, souvenirs and mementos.
So, if we have given you some food for thought and you would like to come and visit Dean’s during the summer, we would love to welcome you.
We’re open seven days a week (factory production weekdays only) and are situated approximately 40 miles north of Aberdeen on the Scotch Whisky Trail.
Remember, if you get lost… just follow your nose.
