Robert Mackenzie - Cullisse Highland rapeseed oil

Robert Mackenzie is the most northerly producer of rapeseed oil in the UK.  He is one of the forth generation of his family producing food at Cullisse, the family’s farm in Ross-shire in the Highlands of Scotland.

Robert originally qualified as a solicitor but decided to pursue his dream of returning to his farming roots and creating a fine rapeseed oil using quality produce grown on his family’s farms.

The name Cullisse means "nook (or bottom) of the garden", which is appropriate name for Robert's rapeseed oil because the seeds are pressed at the bottom of his garden just over the wall from the field in which his first pressing was grown by his father and brother.  

2011 was Robert's first year of production and has already attracted the notice of acclaimed chef Nigel Slater, who used Cullisse in his BBC series, Simple Cooking.  Robert himself was featured cooking with Cullisse rapeseed oil on Nigel’s “Simple Christmas” for the BBC in December 2011.
