AN Aberdeenshire farm store has teamed up with an exclusive champagne restaurant and bar as part of Edinburgh’s annual Fringe Festival.
The Store in Foveran, near Ellon, has supplied the Pommery Champagne Café Bar, located in the capital’s historic Signet Library, with award-winning Aberdeen Angus ground beef to make their burgers for guests to enjoy alongside their champagne.
The champagne restaurant, which runs throughout the month of August (2-26) while the festival takes place, was a sell-out last year and is always a major talking point of the annual event, offering the finest fizz and delicious food in one of Edinburgh’s most impressive buildings.
The Store’s meat for the burgers, is a new addition to the menu and is already proving to be a favourite with customers, often selling more than the lobster.
Launched in 2000, The Store has a passion for high-quality, local produce and prides itself on creating beef that is tastier and natural by rearing the Aberdeen Angus cattle on a grass based diet all year round.
The family-run farm and farm store, which was recently recognised at this year’s Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards, is owned by husband and wife team, Andrew and Debbie Booth.
The business has its own farm and butchery on-site, which allows them to follow a farm to fork approach and gives them 100 per cent traceability on all their products.
Mr Booth, said: “We are really happy that our meat is going down well with festival goers and I am proud to see the The Store produce showcasing in the capital city.
“We always strive to offer our customers only the best quality produce and it is good opportunity to highlight the quality of Scottish produce from visitors across the world attending the festival.”
Ian D’Annunzio Green, executive director of Heritage Portfolio, which manages the Pommery Champagne Cafe Bar, comments: “The burgers have been a popular new addition to our cafe bar this year.
“We find good quality beef goes really well with either a glass of vintage Pommery or with one of our artisan beers and we have already sold over 1,000 burgers.
“They are particularly in high demand with the male visitors – the Scottish rugby team visited recently and really enjoyed them!”
The pop-up Pommery Champagne Café Bar at the Signet Library, situated just off the Royal Mile, will be open from 2-26 August.
