Ross’s August roundup

Here at Ross’s it feels like August has passed us by in a flash.

The City of Edinburgh was thriving with visitors from around the world coming to the Capital for the 70th Edinburgh International Festival. The Festival was launched at the start of August with an immersive light show in St Andrew’s Square. After a record breaking box office it ended on Monday with a spectacular fireworks concert and music from the Scottish Chamber orchestra.

Ross’s also celebrated 70 years of our yellow and tartan Edinburgh Castle Rock box. The box was created and introduced for sale for the first Edinburgh International Festival in 1947. The silhouette of the Castle on the front of the box is from the doorway of a greengrocer’s shop in the middle of Princes Street. The owner agreed to launch the packaging with a prominent window display in exchange for exclusive rights for the first summer. Our Edinburgh Castle Rock can be found in many of the shops in Edinburgh.

Looking forward, September will be bringing the opening of the Queensferry Crossing, with 50,000 pedestrians set to walk across it this weekend in a once in a lifetime opportunity. September also brings Scotland’s Food and Drink fortnight to support Scotland’s produce and producers. #onethingfortnight is about encouraging people to change one thing about how much Scottish produce they eat and drink.

We will be embracing some of Scotland’s traditional produce such as Haggis and Whisky, by introducing new hard rock flavours for the Autumn. Keep an eye on this page to find out more!
