Jeff Lawrie and his son, also Jeff, collected the coveted title for the family's 'Jaffy's Oak Smoked Mallaig Kippers' at the glitzy award ceremony at Fortnum and Mason in London on the 5th of September.
After three rigorous tasting rounds the Kippers were awarded a top prize of three gold stars by judges including celebrity chefs and food critics.
To win three Gold Stars the Guild of Fine Food require a room of forty judges to unanimously agree that the food is "faultless and utterly superb" in taste and texture.
The judges at the awards described the kippers as, 'One of the very best! Excellent appearance - well presented. Flakes beautifully from the bone. Not oily, not dry. Only very lightly salted.
Owners, Jeff and Shona said: To win three stars was fantastic but to win Scottish Speciality and be one of the four finalists in the British final is truly an honour. Sainsbury's are the first of Britain's quality supermarkets to recognise the growing demand for this premium shellfish product amongst it's increasingly more discerning customer base.
This remarkable coup by the Scottish Langoustine Project follows months of discussions with senior Sainsbury's personnel during which time a formidable Supply Chain Analysis was undertaken along with rigorous testing of the North-west Highland langoustines by Sainsbury's team of Food Technicians.
Uppermost in Sainsbury's commercial criteria were the sustainability of the fishery coupled to the continuity of supply in to their stores on a daily basis. Sainsbury's commitment to freshness and quality dovetailed neatly with North-west Highland fishing practices, these revolve around daily landings from a fleet of predominantly small boats with that day's catch entering the logistics network culminating in the langoustines reaching Sainsbury's Fresh Fish counters with the minimum of delay and handling.
Further communication between Messrs. Such was the success of this initial meeting that a list of objectives were quickly identified and acted upon leading to a further meeting in Mallaig in August.
This meeting witnessed the introduction of two further participants; Phil Nickells - Account Director for Young's Seafood, acting for Sainsbury's Sainsbury's purchase all their Fresh Fish produce through Young's, who also undertake all quality assessment measures on behalf of Sainsbury's ; and Tony Kenning of Kenning Fishing, a Mallaig based but nationally recognised langoustine buyer and processor, completing the Scottish Langoustine Project team.
The enthusiasm from all parties to construct a lasting commercial partnership whereby Sainsbury's customers' would be offered the choice of purchasing North-west Highland whole fresh langoustine was evident at this meeting.
Stringent product quality assessment and logistics trials were successfully undertaken throughout late August and early September, resulting in the Scottish Langoustine Project's partnership with Sainsbury's being announced to the Scottish Parliament on 22nd September.
For some months the Bank has opened only three days a week on reduced hours because of staff shortages here an din Fort William. On Wednesday 12th October, the bank was due to be open from 10am - 1pm, but when customers turned up the door was shut with no explanatory note.
Colin MacDougall of Denholm Fishselling said 'I called the Call Centre and they had had no notification that the branch would be closed. It's closed tomorrow Thursday and supposedly open Friday.
Are they supposed to wait for their pay because the Bank can't get on with recruiting more staff? The application will now be heard on November 1st after a site visit by the Planning Committee.
Stuck for the first time this winter. Yes - winter or so it seems. The crazy warm wind of last week has gone and we're all getting ready to hunker down for the gales. And the weather does still have some bearing on the visitor season. Doune is shut down with Frances and Steven away back to Eigg preparing for the housewarming and Luke on a break before coming back to help de-rig Eda.
Lauri, who was working at the pub and fish farm, has also departed and I think the peninsula is down to those who are staying for at least most of the winter. The departure of the Humphries to the States where Matt is already ensconced in his new job is now imminent.
Sam, Jasmine, Daisy and Felix are heading out within the month. I think they are looking forward to the new ways, the challenges and the pool yet slightly sad in the leaving. But they will be back. Continuing on the travel front the Millers, or at least Isla and Rhona are about to embark on their own American adventure leaving the T-Room in Britta's hands.
Tommy too is off on a trip for a couple of weeks - taking the time no doubt to recover from the excitement of the Heroes and Villains party he had the other week - what is it about Knoydart and dressing up parties.
Many remarkable outfits on show some of which actually made me cry with laughter. Paul Williams is his new replacement on the post round. The social calendar continues to be full with a disco and the continuing film nights all taking place in the Hall.
These types of events generally pass off without incident - if only the same could be said for the most recent riotous pensioners' night. Many a youngster was sat at the bar shaking their heads at the harebrained antics of the oldest crew there are at least five crews on Knoydart:Fortnum And Mason is an upmarket department store in London with many branches in different states.

She has strong Asian features and one of Jammy Toast’s readers has even mistaken her for an Asian Ladyboy. So, bearing this in mind, we decided it was time to reveal the truth concerning the origin of The Chimpton.
