The hustle and bustle is building at Jollys of Orkney as we start preparing our deliveries for the Christmas period.
Over the next 12 days, we’ll be sharing our 12 top tips to enjoying fine Orcadian food over the festive season, and celebrating Christmas in style!
We hope you choose to enjoy some of the amazing Orkney produce we have on offer, but most of all we wish you a very Jolly Christmas.
1. Schedule your delivery
Especially for the festive period and for gift orders, we have a date picker at checkout so you can choose when you would like your order dispatched. Simply order now and choose your preferred date on the cart page.
2. Orkney Hampers
We have one of the largest ranges of Orkney Hampers available to suit all tastes and budget. These make perfect Christmas presents for the food-lovers in your family and friends. From cheese & biscuits, to seafood, whisky-lovers hampers and our super special Deluxe Orkney Hamper. Give the gift of quality produce this year and you can even make your own Orkney Hamper by choosing just the products you want.
3. 10% off your first order
If it's your first order with Jollys, or you haven't used your JOLLY10 code yet, then you can get 10% off your order. Simply enter JOLLY10 at checkout and choose wisely as it's only valid once per customer.
4.The Finest Orkney Salmon
Salmon is a staple part of Christmas food in many households. Often this is bought in a last-minute dash to the supermarket. So why not treat yourself to some salmon that's even easier to get hold of and much more special.
Our range of Orkney salmon comes in all varieties to suit your taste, from smoked and unsmoked, organic, sliced, whole sides and even smoked with Highland Park whisky. Order now and we'll deliver it straight to your door. What could be better?
5. After Dinner Delicacies
Orkney has some amazing artisan producers of biscuits, preserves and cheese. So why not make your after dinner cheeseboard a bit more special this year with a range of cheese and biscuits much more adventurous than you'll find in the supermarket. From creamy Grimbister farmhouse cheese to feisty chilli smoked cheddar, paired with a range of famous Orkney oatcakes and some moreish chutney - you can't go wrong!
6. Sweet Treats
If you haven't tried the famous Orkney Fudge then you really should. And if you have tried it, you probably want some more! We stock a range of Orkney Fudge flavours and pack sizes including the festive selection box. These make the perfect stocking filler for those with a sweet tooth and a distinctly Orkney alternative to chocolate coins!

At Jollys, we’re passionate about what we do.

We are also very proud to work alongside a range of other popular local Orkney producers, brining you the finest cheese, meats, oatcakes and biscuits etc.
