2010 saw Eriska win the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Environmental Award, and once again this year, they have been shortlisted in the Environmental Award category as well as the Restaurant of the Year category.
In its tenth year, the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards aim to celebrate excellence and achievement within the food and drink industry by recognising businesses that are innovative, forward thinking and collaborative in business ethos and practices. The food and drink industry in the Highlands and Islands generates in excess of £1 billion per annum and supports around 30,000 full time jobs across the region. A full list of businesses short listed can be found here.
On behalf of all the team at the Isle of Eriska, Beppo Buchanan-Smith said, “This nomination is a great credit to Ross and his team both in the kitchen and out in the gardens, working to offer guests a truly unique dining experience enjoying all that is great about Scottish produce.”
Eriska’s Head Chef, Ross Stovold, also added, “It’s always an honour to be recognised within the industry. We hope to continue our development at Eriska over the coming years and strive to showcase Scottish producers and ingredients.”
The awards ceremony will take place on Friday 24th October 2014 in the Kingsmill Hotel, Inverness when the winners of each category will be announced.
