The name "Relais and Chateaux" today is the pinnacle of top-notch, luxurious hospitality throughout the world. The fellowship, which originated in France in the 1950s set out with the mission "to spread its unique art de vivre across the globe by selecting outstanding properties with a truly unique character." and now holds over 500 members in its ranks.

This month marked Relais and Chateaux 60th anniversary: an occassion celebrated globally across the 60 countries containing a R&C property, and this week Eriska were proud to help mark the occassion with a special tasting menu showcasing the best of Scottish produce and our chef, Ross Stovold's, ability to transform it into something extraordinary.

Along with the meal guests to the hotel had the option to have matched wines, which were carefully selected to optimise the flavours and textures of each dish and deliver a true fine-dining experience true of and Relais and Chateaux property. The wines selected were all from different regions of France, as tribute to Relais and Chateaux origins.

The night was a tremendous success and enjoyed by all in attendance. We at Eriska were thrilled to be a part of the celebration and congratulate Relais and Chateaux on their immense success, wishing them a happy anniversary with many more to come!
