The Baxter

The Baxter Clan is famous for its legendary soup-making abilities, most particularly that most Scottish of soups, "Cock-a-leekie", a hearty broth made from fresh cocks and leekies.

Legend has it that, before the Battle of Bannockburn, Robert the Bruce had a tin of Baxter's Lobster Bisque with a few croutons and was so fortified that he thrashed the English Army against all the odds.

The Baxter family motto is "Nil inde potum fukit", which roughly translated means "If it will'nae go in the cooking pot, it's nae use to us."

Audrey Baxter

The Managing Director of Baxters
of Speyside. In spite of having a chin (or two) that
would put Desperate Dan to shame, she still insists
on starring in her company's TV commercials and doing
the Baxters brand image untold damage, so has to be
the vainest soup maker who ever lived.
