Edinburgh Airport becomes Scotland’s first Provenance Airport

L-R: Richard Lochhead, Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Food, and Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, enjoy a glass of Scottish whiskey


Edinburgh Airport has become Scotland’s first ‘Provenance Airport’ by signing up to a Scottish Food and Drink Pledge that demonstrates the airport’s ongoing commitment to ensuring it continually works with its retail partners to use authentic, sustainable Scottish food and drink where possible.

The airport is committed to showcasing Scotland’s finest food and drink and has recently opened the World of Whiskies shop in the airport’s new 14,000ft² walkthrough World Duty Free store. The World of Whiskies shop is the largest of its kind in the World Duty Free estate and stocks an unmatched selection of malts. To mark the signing of the pledge, it is promoting two new Glenlivet Master Distiller Reserve expressions, both of which are available as world exclusives at Edinburgh Airport from today (October 1) for two weeks. 

Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said, “Scotland’s vast array of incredible produce deserves to be celebrated, and in what better way than at Scotland’s global gateway. We are delighted to sign the Food and Drink pledge and commit to continuing to work in collaboration to promote Scottish food and drink.”

The pledge comes after Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Food, Richard Lochhead, wrote to transport hub operators across the country asking them to commit to sourcing more local produce. He said,

“Scotland’s outstanding food and drink is a massive draw for visitors from around the world and, with more than 10 million people passing through Edinburgh Airport last year, it is the ideal place to showcase the unrivalled quality and provenance of our produce.
“I very much welcome Edinburgh Airport showcasing the Scottish food and drink on offer – the first of Scotland’s airports to do so. As Scotland celebrates our Year of Food and Drink, I would like to see more operators to follow this good example and make a commitment to playing a part in Scotland’s journey towards becoming a Good Food Nation.”
