Single malt scotch or candy… which to purchase for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day? Well now you can purchase candy made WITH single malt scotch – yum! McCrea’s Candies makes handcrafted Highland Single Malt Scotch caramels that are slow cooked to a precise temperature to ensure a smooth and creamy texture. They complete the recipe using a Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky with a hint of peat that plays against the sweetness resulting in a complex flavor with a long, smoky finish.

McCrea’s Candies is located in Boston at 202 Neponset Valley Parkway – just in case you need to swing by and pick some up today.
