Food and drink festival opens at Edinburgh Airport

A new food and drink festival known as the Scottish Selection has been launched at Edinburgh Airport promoting Scotch whisky as one of the country’s finest exports. And who's to argue that?

Running until the end of September, the Scottish Selection will be forged through a partnership between the airport, World Duty Free and concessionaire Delaware North.

Chefs will prepare Scottish classics such as haggis, neeps and tatties, and venison served with an Auchentoshan whisky sauce. Passengers will also be able to sample a wide range of Scotch whisky at a number of venues including Thermidors Champagne Bar and the World Duty Free Auchentoshan bar. The selection on offer range from classic malts such as Auchentoshan and Glenmorangie, through to a 40-year-old Brora priced at just under £7,000 (US$11,700).

“We’re proud to be working with our partners at Auchentoshan, Delaware North and World Duty Free to launch this amazing celebration of one of Scotland’s most famous products,” said Richard Townsend, head of retail and property at Edinburgh Airport. “Scotch whisky is renowned the world over and we want our passengers to be at the heart of our new festival.”
