Finalists

SLTN Whisky Bar of the Year, in association with Glenfiddich

The SLTN Whisky Bar of the Year Award will go to a venue with Scotland’s national drink at its heart. A balanced and interesting range, knowledgeable staff and innovative promotion were among the criteria. The 2021 finalists are:

 

Glenfiddich
Fiddler's

Fiddler’s
Drumnadrochit

Quality is the top consideration when it comes to selecting which whiskies form part of the 600+ strong range at Fiddler’s. The bar strives to offer something for all whisky tastes, whether that’s a dram from any of Scotland’s working distilleries or a taste of the past from a distillery gone by – all at accessible prices. And it’s not just on the gantry that whisky plays a starring role. It features in everything from dishes on the menu and suggested food pairings through to special tastings and events.

Nauticus

Nauticus
Leith

Accessibility is the watchword when it comes to whisky at Nauticus. Displayed by flavour profile, the range features plenty of whiskies from independent bottlers resulting in a plethora of unusual bottlings on the gantry. That said, the team has curated a range that’s accessible and approachable. There’s a selection of whisky cocktails, ‘half and half’ suggestions, and ‘last dregs’ and ‘hot off the stills’ sections on the menu; and a very knowledgeable team on hand to advise.

Seumas' Bar

Seumas’ Bar
Sligachan Hotel, Isle of Skye

Nestled amid the dramatic Cuillin, Seumas’ Bar offers a warm welcome to tourists and locals alike, with the 450+ strong whisky range the centrepiece of the bar. From rare drams to creative cocktails, food pairings and flights, whisky is promoted in a variety of ways, while the menu’s flavour wheel and colour-coded pricing structure are designed to make the extensive range easy to navigate. And the knowledgeable team is on hand to guide guests on their whisky journey.


SLTN Cocktail Bar of the Year, in association with Bombay Sapphire

Cocktails provide an excellent opportunity to build on the benefits of premium drinks brands. They can help increase both profitability and consumer appeal. In the Cocktail Bar of the Year category, SLTN and Bombay Sapphire were looking for Scottish bars which make the most effective use of cocktails. The 2021 finalists are:

The Adamson

The Adamson
St Andrews

The Adamson certainly didn’t press pause over the pandemic. If the team weren’t filling themed mail-order cocktail boxes, running the ‘cocktails to go’ shop or creating paired cocktail and dinner experiences for guests to enjoy at home, they were busy training staff and developing the venue’s offer. Visually striking ‘cocktail trees’ have been a runaway success, with patrons clamouring to order them as soon as they spot them on another table.

Hey Palu

Hey Palu
Edinburgh

This chic and intimate cocktail spot on Bread Street brings the flavours of Italy to the capital. The bar’s namesake, Alex Palumbo, hails from Salerno and is a master of the aperitivo experience: supremely well-balanced drinks served with flair and scrummy locally-sourced nibbles. Novel ‘garnishes’ – like the Paper Plane’s square of paper, QR-coded ice and YouTube video to DIY your own aeroplane – make cocktails here a truly sensory experience.

Orchid

Orchid
Aberdeen

Innovation is what continues to drive this Granite City haunt. The team launched its at-home cocktail delivery service in April 2020 and – tens of thousands of cocktails later – they have emerged from the pandemic with an expanded and very successful ‘cocktails delivered’ arm of the business, not to mention a brand new set of guests eager to visit the venue in person off the back of their delicious at-home drinking experiences.


SLTN Beer Quality Award, in association with Tennent’s

When it comes to draught beer in the on-trade, quality is king.
The SLTN Beer Quality Award, in association with Tennent’s, will go to an outlet keeping, dispensing and presenting beer to the highest standard.
The 2021 finalists are:

Tennent's
Staggs

The Stag
Forfar

Under husband and wife team Graeme and Susan Campbell, the team at The Stag is determined to serve the best pints in the locality, and the systems the business has in place – both back and front of house – reflect it. The outlet’s beer cellar and bar area are kept spotless and all cleaning and maintenance procedures meticulously recorded. The result is that regulars can be assured that their favourite pint is of the best possible quality.

Thornwood

The Thornwood
Glasgow

The quality of the beer, whether from the fridge or the cellar, is paramount in this busy neighbourhood bar on Glasgow’s Dumbarton Road.
The Thornwood’s staff members are thoroughly trained in perfect dispense and the bar area is well laid-out and maintained so that whatever is being served – whether it’s a mainstream brand from the tap or a craft beer from the bar’s popular honesty fridge – it is in the best possible condition.

Winstons

Winstons
Corstorphine

Loyal customers trust this popular Corstorphine pub to serve them a great pint and it’s not a responsibility the team takes lightly. Staff are trained using a combination of online and in-person training, and thorough systems for activities such as keg rotation, glass and line cleaning mean that regulars are able to enjoy the perfect pint every time they visit, whether it’s their favourite lager or one of the pub’s regularly-rotating cask ales.


SLTN Best Venue to Watch the Match, in association with Sky

SLTN has joined forces with Sky to look for the best venue to watch the match in. The judges were looking to find those on-trade outlets where live sports events are used as a way of maximising business.
The 2021 finalists are:

Cherrybank

Cherrybank Inn
Perth

The team has transformed a beautiful local bar into a wonderful space in which to watch the match. There are ten widescreen TVs throughout and, due to expansion, the scope to create a space with a capacity of 600 for big events. The team pulls out all the stops to create a match-like atmosphere at the venue, including a piper playing before recent Scotland matches. And there are food and drink packages ranging from Champagne with a four-course meal to a tasty burger.

Record Factory

The Record Factory
Glasgow

One of the most unassuming entrances leads to a huge venue, with different ‘zones’ designed to cater for everyone. Spaces from the main bar to the stage area, and the snug to the beer garden are all kitted out with fantastic screens and sound systems to ensure everyone enjoys the best live sport experience. The food menu has been created with sport in mind, with classic pub-style food, burgers and wings on offer alongside a wide range of beers and seasonal cocktails.

Vic's Bar

Vic’s
Prestwick

With a huge investment in equipment including eight 4K TVs and a 4K projector, there is no doubting this venue’s commitment to delivering a top quality live sport experience. Customers get a great view of the action wherever they are in the venue; the team goes to great effort to create one of the best atmospheres around; and the food menu spans homely meals to match day snacks which can all be washed down with a pint of brewery-fresh Tennent’s tank beer.


SLTN Best Outdoor Area, in association with Magners Irish Cider

Beer gardens and outdoor areas have long been an important asset to businesses – and they were a lifeline for many during the COVID restrictions. In this category, judges were looking for an outlet that excels in providing outdoor facilities that are a real asset to the business.
The 2021 finalists are:

Magners Irish Cider

The George Hotel
Inveraray

Tucked behind the hotel overlooking Loch Fyne, The Garden Bar was created in a former car park, which has been totally transformed to incorporate different seating areas, an outdoor bar, and a food shack serving pizzas and burgers. Stretch tents, heaters and outdoor TV screens – coupled with a programme of live music – ensure year-round use of an outdoor area which was a lifeline for the business during the pandemic and continues to make a significant contribution to trade.

The Old Mill

The Old Mill
Killearn

This gastropub’s garden has always been an integral part of the business, and a recent redesign elevated the space further still. A stretch tent, complete with heating and lighting, sits on limestone slabs, while the surrounding space has been beautifully landscaped to incorporate flower beds, a lawned area, fire pit and further seating. The revamped outdoor area has gone down a storm with customers and the space brings a healthy boost to business.

Record Factory

The Record Factory
Glasgow

With more than 20 tables under retractable awnings, outdoor heaters, a sound system and TV screens, the al fresco space at this west end venue is designed to cater for all eventualities. And it has been further enhanced with the addition of a fully-roofed pergola, creating a covered raised seating area. From offering BBQs and suncream in the summer to blankets and hot cocktails during winter, the outdoor area is a true year-round operation.


SLTN Gin bar of the Year, in association with Schweppes

Gin has been one of the biggest success stories in recent years.
In the Gin Bar of Year category, judges were looking for a bar with a carefully-considered range of gins, mixers and garnishes and an innovative selection of serves.
The 2021 finalists are:

Schweppes
56 North

56 North
Edinburgh

With a whopping 350+ gins behind the bar – including its own South Loch Gin which is distilled on site, 56 North does not do things by half. There is no house pour, with the team instead recommending gins to customers based on their own taste preferences and palate. Owner James is constantly looking for new ways to evolve the bar’s approach to gin, including its hugely popular cheese and gin pairing experiences, online tastings, and recently-introduced gin trees.

Gallery 48

Gallery 48
Dundee

This light and airy gin and tapas bar easily transports its customers to Spain – all without leaving Dundee city centre. There’s an extensive range of gins on the gantry at Gallery 48, and gin and food pairings are promoted in the venue in a bid to showcase the best Scottish gins as well as those from across Europe and around the world. The knowledgeable, professional team delivers top notch customer service and recommendations to customers.

Masonic Arms

The Masonic Arms
Kirkcudbright

Husband and wife team, Simon and LG, have successfully created an oasis in the Kirkcudbright countryside when it comes to the Masonic Arms. The 265-strong gin range is complemented by a truly outstanding tonic selection, which is designed to offer something for everyone. Staff training is a huge focus, with all full-time staff undertaking off-site cocktail training; and there’s a gin bible behind the bar for busier evenings to ensure every drink is garnished and served correctly.


SLTN Rum Bar of the Year, in association with Bacardi 

The SLTN Rum Bar of the Year award will recognise a venue with rum at its very heart – from the range stocked and serves offered to the passion of the staff who work there.
The 2021 finalists are:

Bacardi

Boteco Do Brasil
Edinburgh

This Edinburgh city centre venue is alive with Latin spirit, with the music and food perfectly complementing the dazzling rum and cacahca selection. With over 60 different rums on the back-bar, customers are spoilt for choice. And there’s a drinks menu bursting full of classic cocktails, all designed to transport customers to a more exotic land.
It is safe to say that customers will have a party to remember in this vibrant cocktail bar.

The King of Islington
Dundee

Rum is the beating heart of this cosy city centre bar, where every evening has the potential to turn into a rum masterclass. Bottles from around the world line the back-bar, which is organised geographically, with every style of rum represented. Customers are able to choose from a flight tailor-made to their specific tastes, a spirit and mixer, or delve into the bar’s cocktail list, where each section is inspired by a different rum-producing region.

Tiki Bar
Glasgow

Enter this Glasgow bar and you will find yourself in another world. Hawaiian shirts, bamboo and Easter Island heads bring this venue to life, paying homage to the great Tiki bars of old. The enormous rum range lines the walls behind the bartenders as they skilfully create the drinks from the classic-forward cocktail menu. The sweet and sour smell of the East Asian cuisine that this bar serves fills the room and rounds off an authentic experience.


SLTN Barperson of the Year, in association with Smokehead

Open to all bar staff across Scotland, the SLTN Barperson of the Year award seeks to recognise the knowledge and passion of the country’s best all-round barperson. This award will go to a barperson with a real passion for pubs, who has the skills, knowledge and desire to make a real difference to enhance the experience of their customers. The 2021 finalists are:

Marty Salkauskas
The Lovat
Fort Augustus

Marty’s passion for hospitality, knowledge, skill, and fastidious attention to detail have helped redefine The Lovat’s Waypoint Bar. With a focus on local, sustainable ingredients, he has curated a drinks offer that showcases his passion for foraging, barrel-ageing and creating infusions. Marty is continually broadening his knowledge and skill-set through regular training sessions; and he passes that on to the team to ensure consistently high standards are maintained.

Argiris Veniamin

Glasgow

Born into a hospitality family, Argiris honed his skills in his native Greece working in some of the top venues in Athens before moving to Glasgow last year and heading up new cocktail bar Fly South.

Breagha regularly competes in cocktail competitions and gets involved in as many tastings, trainings and trips as she can to broaden her knowledge further still.


SLTN Licensee of the Year, in association with Kopparberg

Licensee of the Year is a category open to owner/operators who hold a personal licence in the Scottish on-trade.

The 2021 finalists are:

Ian Bloomfield

Ian Bloomfield
The Meadow Inn

He has completely refurbished the venue and introduced events such as comedy nights, live music and drag bingo at the same time as perfecting the food and drinks offer and nurturing the close-knit team.

Marc Ferrier

Marc Ferrier
The Thornwood
Glasgow

Having worked in and run some of the most iconic venues in Glasgow, Marc took that knowledge, experience and passion and ploughed it in to his own business.

An experienced bartender and mixologist, Alex began his hospitality career in London and has gone on to work in a variety of roles across the UK and overseas. In 2019 he opened Edinburgh cocktail bar Hey Palu with wife Rachel, where he mixes a range of Italian-style aperitivi as well as modern twists on classics. Though he takes his drinks seriously, there’s a sense of fun to Alex’s cocktails – reinforced by the props they are often accompanied by.

Kat, Uno Mas

Kat Stanley-Whyte
Uno Mas
Edinburgh

When Edinburgh cocktail bar Uno Mas was forced to close its doors just weeks after its launch, Kat’s bartending career could have stalled. Instead, she spent the past year creating new recipes, competing in cocktail competitions and developing an initiative that could see bars around Edinburgh growing their own ingredients. Passionate about hospitality and quality drinks, Kat is as happy producing high-volume drinks on a Saturday night as intricate one-offs for a competition.

Charlie, Orchid

Charlie Wilson

The Ship Inn

The Ship Inn
Elie

Quality, local produce is at the heart of the constantly-evolving food offer at Elie’s Ship Inn.

Edinburgh

Craft beer is at the very heart of this Edinburgh bar. The 11 craft taps feature beers from a range of different breweries on rotation and there’s an extensive range of craft cans in the fridges.

New businesses and business ideas are the bedrock of Scotland’s vibrant hospitality industry.

The 2021 finalists are:

Hatch
St Andrews

When the owners of this St Andrews venue didn’t feel it was achieving its full potential, the team pivoted to a new concept. The venue was overhauled and became Hatch, a stylish bar and restaurant offering a regularly-changing menu of small plates, quality wines and cocktails. A few months later and – despite the disruption of the pandemic – Hatch is proving popular with the town’s diverse local customer base as well as visitors.

Inn at Dollar

The Inn at Dollar
Dollar

The creation of this village bar restaurant was a massive undertaking for owners, the Hendersons.
A former traditional pub, the property was gutted and then extended into an adjoining flat to create a spacious pub and restaurant over two floors.
Despite the numerous closures and reopenings forced by the pandemic, the Inn at Dollar has since established itself as a valued part of the local community and a welcome addition to the village.

Redhurst

The Redhurst
Giffnock

The Redhurst has been a fixture in this Glasgow suburb since the 1960s, but by late 2019 it was in need of a refresh. The subsequent £3 million refurbishment was a huge undertaking by parent company Manorview Hotels, involving a complete overhaul of the property. Research was conducted locally to find out what people wanted from the venue and those insights incorporated into the project to create a hotel, bar and restaurant as popular with locals as it is for events.


SLTN Independent Pub/Bar of the Year, in association with Brown-Forman

The SLTN Independent Pub/Bar of the Year Award, in association with Brown-Forman, will go to an outlet which relishes its independence.
Marketing, product range, staff training and customer service were among the criteria.
The 2021 finalists are:

Howlin’ Wolf
Glasgow

There is something for everyone in this unique venue. From live music to casual after-work drinks to chicken wings served at 2am – it’s easy to see why this Glasgow institution has been so incredibly popular for the past seven years. It is said that ‘The staff makes the Wolf’, and the unparalleled levels of training undertaken by the team not only support this notion but contribute hugely to the venue’s success and ensure everyone is still smiling into the early hours.

MacGregors

MacGregor’s
Inverness

Very much a local pub first, MacGregor’s also regularly dazzles visitors from further afield – something which was reinforced during lockdown when the bar attracted a global audience whilst hosting a music show ‘Live at Five’, which thousands tuned into throughout the pandemic. It was the latest success for the bar since it opened in 2017, despite being told it wouldn’t be able to compete with the larger pub groups. It’s clear the MacGregor motto of ‘Despite them’ has paid off.

Palais

The Palais
Glasgow

A true community pub through and through, The Palais has the Dennistoun regulars who are so loyal to their local at its very heart. All walks of life are welcomed, with an event (and cocktail!) to suit everyone. The energy of the team at The Palais is infectious, and their synergy coupled with their dedication to customer service and determination to continue to build upon their success is what makes this Glasgow east end neighbourhood bar so special.


SLTN Hospitality Hero Award

When COVID-19 took hold in Scotland and pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and hotels were forced to close, people across the hospitality industry thought of others – from their staff and regulars to local charities and groups – and went the extra mile to help those who needed it. The SLTN Hospitality Hero Award will recognise an individual in the Scottish trade who went above and beyond to help others during the pandemic.

The winner of this award will be revealed at the SLTN Awards
on 18th November 2021
