27 Apr Made in Scotland Award Winners
Scotland Food & Drink Company of the Year
The moment the news arrived that WEST had been named Scotland’s Food & Drink Company of the Year at the RBS & Business Insider ‘Made in Scotland Awards’, our hearts leapt. What an honour, and what a title!
Here at WEST, we could not be more thrilled to be given such an award. It truly is a testament to the persistence and dedication of the team we have, with the company’s Founder and Managing Director Petra Wetzel the force behind it all.
Petra accepted the award at a ceremony held in Edinburgh on April 21st. When presenting her with the award, the panel of independent judges referenced the recent expansion of WEST, which they said made the company the stand-out winner.
WEST recently completed work on a state-of-the-art new brewery housed in WEST’s original site in the Templeton Building that will increase brewing capacity ten-fold, as well as a new events space, the Courtyard, which hosts a variety of events from conferences to gigs and weddings.
With WEST’s 10th birthday celebrated in March, the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot, and WEST On The Green being named Scotland’s Pub of the Year, 2016 has been a year of great milestones already. We look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring.
