Isle of Skye Sea Salt receives Great Taste Award 2014
We are really delighted to be able to tell you that we have received a Great Taste 2014 award for our Fine Grain salt.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, farmers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.
Great Taste is simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging. Judges are presented with a product with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making the decision on whether a product should be a winner. In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.
On our Fine Grain salt the judges commented: 'lovely flavour', 'we feel it would be good for sprinkling whole to add texture and flavour without being overpowering. After eating for a few minutes it is just nicely there at the back of the throat with no harshness'.
This award, together with our being a finalist in the Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards 2014 and our short-listing for the Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Environmental Award 2014 underline our commitment to producing a top quality product while minimising our environmental impacts.
