There is no love sincerer than the love of food – George Bernard Shaw
Speyside Specialities had a fantastic time at the Taste of Grampian food festival last month. The annual event aims to showcase the wide variety of food and drink the North-East of Scotland has to offer.
From the finest Scottish salmon and authentic shortbread, to Aberdeen angus beef and top quality scotch whiskey, we were privileged enough to showcase our traditional Scottish produce alongside the best of Grampians drink and cuisine.
Over 15,000 visitors from all over the world attended the festival –now in its 15thyear – bringing in more than £1 million to the local economy!
The sector giant that is the oil & gas industry often over shadows the northeast of Scotland. People sometimes forget the region has more than just energy to offer. The Scottish food and drink sector is worth over £13 billion to the economy with the number of exports growing year by year.
In fact, did you know that Scotland exports 36 bottles of whiskey a second? That doesn’t even include our massive fishing industry, and top quality beef, lamb and dairy. We ourselves were just recently named the worlds leading supplier in oatmeal-based whitepudding!
Check out some of the fantastic photos we’ve found from this year and last years Taste of Grampian festival. Can you spot the Speyside Specialities stand?
