Glass Bottle of Barr’s Irn Bru – The Ultimate ‘Treat’

AnotherΒ of my responses to this weeks’ Weekly Photographic Challenge, I thought I would share the Ultimate Scottish ‘treat‘. Forget the whiskey, the porridge or the haggis. None of that compares to a chilled GLASS BOTTLE of Barr’s Irn Bru!!!!

  1. I didn’t ever drink much in the way if soft drinks but I find myself missing Irn Bru. It’s quite impossible to describe the flavour to anyone who has not tasted it for themselves. We can buy small bottles from an Irish shop here but for stupid prices. I bought some for a cultural exchange thing at my sons’ school. My 10 year old’s classmates were quite smitten with the taste. They were also glad I couldn’t make them try haggis. The way your photograph makes the bottle look so huge makes me ponder why there’s not a statue to Irn Bru somewhere in Scotland.

  2. It’s amazing how deceptive the size of an objest can be when the photo is so close up, and without something next to it to denote scale (a point of reference, is it called?) They’re great photos, and would make excellent advertising posters. I’ve never tasted Irn Bru, but you make it look very appetising. Does it go well with porridge? I eat that every day. Lol. How different the drink looks in b/w. I quite like it that the colour of the bottle’s contents is open to guesswork. Interesting post, Andy.

    • I must confess Millie, and I’ll be shot for saying this, but I’m not a huge fan of Irn Bru – except if it’s served really cold – it tastes to me a wee bit like bubblegum 😦 I was reasonably pleased with the B/W version, but most Scots probably prefer the colour versions, the blue, orange and white is almost a ‘National’ colour in itself πŸ™‚ And like you said, the photos were taken at grass level, so the bottle does appear fairly big, it’s a one litre bottle πŸ™‚

  3. Och aye laddie, made in Scotland from girders. I was only allowed fizzy juice on special occasions as a child and Irn Bru was my treat of choice. I have it very rarely, but just now and then it’s great to have a wee sip again. Lovely. Had you tasted it before you came to live in Scotland?

    • Oddly enough Lorna, I didn’t think it was sold anywhere else other than Scotland. But a week before I moved up here, I discovered they sold it in the shop directly below the flat I had for a wee while in Anglesey. But I didn’t try it until I moved up here πŸ™‚
