What is Great Taste?
Recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else. All products in the line-up for judging are blind-tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified, before entering a robust, layered judging process.
This year, the judging took place over 90 days across two judging locations (Dorset and London) with a panel of more than 500 judges. This year’s line-up saw food and drink products submitted from a staggering 110 different countries from across the world.
John Cussons from Ferry Ales Brewery comments: “We are delighted to have won a Great Taste award for our Lincoln Lager. The team are justifiably proud of our award winning pilsner style lager and adding the iconic black and gold 2-star award is brilliant recognition of all their hard work.”
“Great Taste is one of the most recognised accolades for taste and quality in the food and drink world, so it really is a big win for us!” John concludes.
The Lincoln Lager is available from a number of our local stockists as well as our online shop.
