Effective October 2012 we are no longer accepting orders for tablet. We apprecate the interest, and support, of all who contacted us but events have impelled us to discontinue oor wee business. Perhaps in the future we will be able to resume. Depending on your location, and situation, we suggest contacting An Gleann on Islay. Their product is excellent and we highly recommend it.
Tablet is a unique confection of ancient origin, favored as Scotland’s national sweetie. Tablet is firm, crumbly, and grainy rather than soft and creamy. It is buttery rich yet irresistibly light, melting like a sweet vapor upon your tongue. Although the Scots have been making tablet for centuries, the first reference to it was recorded in the early 18th century Household Book of Lady Grisell Baillie. The ancient recipe consisted of only sugar and cream. Today in Scotland, tablet is traditionally enjoyed at tea time or after dinner and is the treasured finale to flings and weddings.
Our mission at Bluebell Butter Tablet of Maine is to produce a quality, all natural, “Made in Maine” Tablet, bringing this authentic, uniquely Scottish sweetie to our corner of the world, the rugged northeast coast, a region of our country rich in its own Scottish heritage.
Our tablet is made in small 3 pound batches in our Kittery Point cottage kitchen. We use only the highest quality ingredients, including fresh, Maine-made dairy products, with no artificial preservatives, color, or flavorings. Our tablet is hand-cut and hand-packaged in our home, with each package displaying a "best enjoyed by" date.
Our attractively packaged tablet is a novel treat which can also be enjoyed as a tasty sweetener in coffee, tea, or hot oatmeal. Bluebell Butter Tablet is your perfect choice for gifts as well. To order our tablet, please contact us via Email, or telephone: 207-641-9564.
