Ballathie House win at British Cheese Awards



Ballathie House  at Kinclaven won Best Cheeseboards in Scotland and the UK at the British Cheese Awards in the village of Churchill near Oxford in the heart of the Cotswold hills.

“It was a very pleasant surprise. We weren’t expecting to win such an honour because of the popularity of the Awards and huge number of entrants,” said Ballathie’s General Manager, Jody Marshall 

He added: “It’s the latest example of the great culinary strides we’re achieving at Ballathie to make it a major dining destination. Cheese is part of Britain’s food heritage and an important part of a meal.”


Ballathie offers a minimum of 13 cheeses on its dinner trolley. Head Chef Scott Scorer also makes the hotel’s own soft cheese and biscuits, bread and chutney.

More than 180 makers entered 910 different cheeses in the Awards which this year celebrated their 20th anniversary and launched British Cheese Week.

The award, based on reports from cheesemakers, cheese lovers and diners, is the most prestigious award set up to acknowledge and reward those in the hospitality industry with the best quality, selection and inspiring British cheeseboard

It was the second year in succession that Jody had carried off the top cheeseboard award which he won last year at the Summer Isles Hotel at Achiltibuie in Ross-shire.
