The Little Red Berry Co has scooped a 2-Star award at this year’s 2017 Great Taste Awards.
Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink, has announced the Great Taste stars of 2017. Out of over 12,300 products to be judged, The Little Red Berry Co was awarded a 2-star Great Taste award, which means judges dubbed it outstanding for the Elderflower and Cucumber flavoured Gin.
Some of the judges’ comments included “once tonic was added, magic occurred”, “Very clever”
Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.
“We were delighted with our win”. Says Rachel Jamieson, owner of The Little Red Berry Co.
“We’ve known that the Elderflower and Cucumber flavoured Gin was something special the minute we did our first trial, at its launch we sold out within 8 hours. It’s a favourite among our customers and we had to invest in a 300L tank to maintain production. The award is the icing on the cake for us.”
