Best shops to buy condiments for Christmas

So, you've got your turkey, your beef, and a metric tonne of potatoes and veg. The only thing missing is your condiment haul. Here are the best places to pick up sauces, vinegars and chutneys.

Demijohn

32 Victoria Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2JW

For those not in the know, a demijohn is a large bulbous glass bottle used to store liquids and it's the method of choice for Edinburgh's liquid deli of the same name. Filling these laboratory-esque decanters are a colourful array of liqueurs, spirits…

Peckham's

49 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9NZ

One of the largest Peckham's branches, it's something of a godsend for local, independent food in an area dominated by supermarket chains. Peckham's make their own bread and eye-popping cakes, cheesecakes and tarts in a bakery in Glasgow, and this…

Peckham's

124–126 Byres Road, Glasgow, G12 8TB

With such a prime-time site on Byres Road, this particular branch of one of Glasgow’s favourite delicatessens needs to be up to scratch. Like its sister venue on Hyndland Road, there is an excitingly comprehensive selection of high-quality beers and…
