Traditional foods from Scotland shine in Great Taste results

Out of the 10,000 products to be judged, 3,539 were awarded a Great Taste accolade with 194 being based in Scotland, including 3-star award-winning; Donaldsons of Orkney’s “succulent and juicy” Traditional Orkney Haggis, which was applauded for its “clever spicing”.

J Lawrie & Sons’ “meaty, moist and plump” Jaffys Mallaig Kippers, with “woody, smoky and nutty notes, balanced by a lovely sweetness”.

The Gin Bothy’s Mulled Gin, infused with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and star anise, a Scottish grain gin that seduced judges with its “smooth and aromatic Christmas flavours”.

These producers will have to wait to see if they also scoop the top awards for their region. These awards will be announced at the Great Taste Golden Fork Awards Dinner at The Royal Garden Hotel in London on Monday 5 September.
