Dean’s is a family owned business baking melt-in-the-mouth Scottish shortbread in our bakery in Huntly, Aberdeenshire. Our founder Helen Dean began baking shortbread in her kitchen to help raise funds for the Huntly Pipe Band. Dean’s is now a household name in Scotland and its shortbread is enjoyed across the country and beyond.

Dean’s award winning shortbread is based on founder Helen Dean’s original recipe on which the success of the brand has been built.  Our unique light & crumbly, melt in the mouth texture is what sets Dean’s shortbread apart from other brands.

Dean’s shortbread baking business began in Helen’s kitchen in 1975 and since then the business has continued to grow due to the popularity of Helen’s original recipe and the development of new and innovative products.  Our range includes a selection of flavoured shortbread as well as gluten free shortbread varieties.  We also bake delicious savoury oat bites, baked with mature cheddar, as well as mouth watering whisky fruit cake laced with Tomatin® malt whisky. 

In 2018 we collaborated with popular Scottish artist Steven Brown which led to the launch of our very successful shortbread gift tins featuring Steven’s iconic McCoo designs.

Dean’s shortbread can be found in all major supermarkets, as well as independent fine food & gift outlets.  We also manufacture single serve packs for the foodservice sector.
