Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards
Following our success early on Friday night with the hotel gaining the “Taste of Scotland” Scottish Thistle Award, we were thrilled to receive news that we have also won the Williamson Highland and Island Food and Drink Environmental Award on the same evening. We were awarded the environmental award following recognition of the continual improvements the team at Eriska has put in place to reduce our carbon emissions as we work towards more sustainable operations from the resources we use right through to the end product.
These sustainable operations have not only been implemented in the kitchen but have also been transferred and embedded throughout other departments improving our hotel wide environmental operations.
Being the only hotel in our category made being shortlisted for this award an achievement in itself, so winning the award really does seem like an achievement. This achievement would not have been recognized if it was not for the staff here at Eriska and their hard work and commitment which has helped us implement and improve our operations not only for our guests but for the benefit of our local community and environment.
However, as ever, these awards do make us sit back and relax as we believe there is always room for improvement which spurs us onto our next challenge. We will keep our fingers crossed and ask you to watch this space…
