And it's worth every penny!

As we all know, haggis is the world's finest food. And if it's possible to improve upon perfection, then the haggis makers at Macsween have done it.

January 25 is Burns Night, an annual celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns, as well as all that is the good life, such as warm haggis, quality scotch, and bagpipe music. In short, it's an annual celebration of Scottish culture.

To mark the occasion, Macsweens has produced a line of haggis that comes with edible gold bits that you can sprinkle on top. The Scotsman reports:

With a price tag of £4,000, the beloved fixture of any Burns Supper has been handcrafted to the Macsween family recipe but with an infusion of rare ingredients which have been sourced from Scotland and the far corners of the globe.

The list includes Highland Wagyu beef, raised on a Perthshire farm where all cattle has its own name; white summer truffle from France, considered ‘diamonds of the kitchen’ by chefs the world over; and black pepper (tellicherry) from India, which can only be grown at a latitude of 2,000-3,000 feet above sea level.
