Scran season 5: Starting out - exploring new Edinburgh ventures

The latest episode of our podcast Scran is now live.

Welcome to the first episode of Scran for 2022. As this time of year brings to mind new starts and fresh beginnings we've been having a look at some of the newer faces on the food and drink scene in Edinburgh.

Host Rosalind met up with Louise Maclean, Director of Sales and Marketing with Signature Group and Luke Bryant a Brewer at Cold Town House to hear more about bringing brewing back to the Grassmarket and what it takes to build an attractive business and make award-winning craft beer in the capital today.

Rosalind also met Michael Lynch, Manager at Superico, formally the very popular 99 Hanover Street.

Superico is extended over two venues; the bar and lounge serving unique cocktails and tapas and the restaurant at 83 Hannover Street serving up a unique menu of South-American influenced dishes.
