Graham recalls visiting a local farm as a boy, and being told, as he was handed a sweetie from the farmer’s fluffy pocket to, "spit the first sook oot.” Despite this, a sweet tooth and a love of Scottish sweeties has developed and remains today.

No 1 Best Sweet Shop in Scotland: Gordon & Durward, 14 West High St, Crieff.

Unorthodox Roasters is a coffee roasting venture born from a 10-month trip to Latin America.

Neil and Chris quit their jobs as a restaurant manager and media accountant to pursue a hunt for knowledge amongst the coffee plantations.

The two travellers succeeded in learning from the best coffee roasters on the continent and visiting almost all of the coffee growing regions from Bolivia through Colombia to Mexico.
