Gaelic Coffee

By The Hebridean Baker 


Coinneach MacLeod, otherwise known as the Hebridean Baker to millions across the world has released his debut book: The Hebridean Baker, Recipes & Wee Stories from the Scottish Islands.

The book gives you a true taste of Scotland's wild and windswept Outer Hebrides. One of our favourite recipes from the book is his wonderful Gaelic Coffee.  The perfect tipple to warm your soul on a cold winter evening.

1 teaspoon light brown sugar 150ml freshly brewed coffee 50ml Scottish Whisky 2 tablespoons double cream Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg

What You'll Need:

Fill a glass latte mug with hot  water and let it sit for 2 minutes


Empty the water out from the latte glass and add the brown sugar. Pour in the coffee, stirring to dissolve sugar and add the whisky. In a separate bowl, whisk your cream until soft peaks form.  (cream should be thick but pourable) Gently pour over the back of a  warm spoon to form a thick layer  on top of the coffee. Garnish with freshly grated  nutmeg and enjoy!


And remember... Always drink through the cream, never stir.
