An Aberdeen bar is celebrating after winning an award – beating 200 other establishments.
Grape and Grain on Thistle Street picked up the gong for the best wine selection in Scotland.
The accolade was awarded by the Scottish Entertainment and Hospitality Awards at a ceremony in Merchant Square, Glasgow.
The field was narrowed down from more than 5,000 businesses across the country, thanks to 125,000 votes from the public.
Independent judges then attended the 200 bars and restaurants selected as finalists across 10 categories, and were impressed by the 90 different varieties on display at Grape and Grain.
Jeanette Forbes, the proprietor of Grape and Grain, said: “We were up against very stiff competition from well-known and well-established bars from across the country. As a newcomer we were delighted that we had been shortlisted among such prestigious company, but we never expected to win, just to compete as a finalist was an achievement.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us – we would not have made it as a finalist without their support.”
Grape and Grain managed a perfect score with the judges, not dropping a single mark, which is a rarity in the competition, according to Jeanette.
