For lovers of a wee dram, shop the Dram Before the Storm Tote Bag by Eat Haggis at the Braw Wee Emporium.

A great gift for whisky lovers and the ideal way to see in the New Year. Grab a bottle of your favourite whisky and with this bag you are sorted for first-footing at Hogmanay.

First footing (ie the first foot to step into the house after midnight) is a common practice in Scotland. Tradition says to ensure food luck the first footer should carry symbolic items; a lump of coal, some shortbread, a piece of bread, salt and some whisky. It is even more lucky if the footer is a dark haired male. Could there be a better bag to carry with you while first footing?

This design is a tribute to one of Scotlands greatest exports, whisky. Around the circle are the names of the five regions where it is made and the various types that are produced. The date in the centre refers to the first written mention of whisky which was in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland in 1495.

This is a thick high quality gusseted canvas shopper bag hand stitched, made in the British Isles and hand screen printed in Glasgow.

The bag measures approximately 36cm in length and 28cm wide with a 5.5cm deep gusset and 10cm short strap handles. 10oz Cotton half panama.
