ISO Rowan berry jelly (or just rowan berries)

For our Christmas dinner we're cooking from a Scottish cookbook - there is a very yummy-looking roast venison dish with a port and rowan jelly sauce. I have never eaten it before & am not sure where to start looking.
Any ideas? I thought of calling Celtic Treasure Chest, or other British import shops, but there may be some other possibilities that I haven't thought of.
Just in case anyone is ever searching for native berry jams again, I'll put this link out there http://www.wildwestcoastrainforest.com/
Met this lady at the Vancouver Farmer's Market. She is a retired chef living in Powell River who now makes her living foraging for native berries that she turns into jams and sauces. They are truly amazing. And even SHE doesn't sell rowan jelly. She said she can make it, and has in the past, but she doesn't bring it to markets because it's too bitter for the average person's palate around here. So there you go.
