We’re delighted to continue to be re-accredited with a “Taste Our Best” award by VisitScotland for the provenance and quality of our produce.
This accreditation ensures that our customers eat quality ingredients of Scottish provenance and only the freshest seasonal produce. As a Taste Our Best establishment, we strive for sustainability, sourcing food locally to ensure we keep food miles to a minimum. Taste Our Best also helps to raise the profile of Scottish food as an important part of tourism, giving credit to those who are achieving high standards and encouraging others to aspire to them.

FreeFrom Eating Out Awards 2015 & 2016
Heaven Scent was delighted to be shortlisted for the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, which were launched to raise awareness of the huge opportunities offered by ‘freefrom’ food within the food service sector now that the new allergen regulations affecting food service have come into force.
We’ve been the only Scottish finalist in this UK-wide competition for the past two years, up against stiff competition (Pizza Express and Crowne Plaza anyone?!), but we’re confident that our delicious range of gluten and multi-allergen-free dishes will give us a great chance among the big guns from south of the border yet again in 2017.

This category, designed to recognise an individual who has become a staple in the Scottish hospitality scene and encompasses everything hospitality needs to be, was new for 2016 and one of the most hotly contested awards of the evening.
Star Awards 2015
Not only did we win the highly coveted “Excellence in Business Innovation” award for our fabulous Heavens Above venue, our very own Hollie Millar walked away with the trophy for “Employee of the Year”.
