An Aberdeenshire brewer has been recognised with an award.
Six°north was awarded a two star Great Taste award for its Wanderlust Wheat beer and a one star for its Omnium Session IPA.
Judged by more than 500 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers 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.
More than 12,700 products were sent in from 100 different countries.
Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging
Robert Lindsay, founder of six°north said: “This is the first year six°north has entered the Great Taste Awards and we’re honoured to have Wanderlust and Omnium recognised by one of the most coveted food and drink awards in the world.
“Our team will be celebrating this weekend, offering tastings of both beers at The Turriff Show and at our bars in Aberdeen, Stonehaven, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.”
The judges savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a one, two or three star award.
There were 12,772 entries into Great Taste this year and of those products, 208 have been awarded a three star, 1,326 received a two star and 3,409 were awarded a one star accolade.
The panel of judges this year included cook, writer and champion of sustainable food, Melissa Hemsley, Kenny Tutt MasterChef 2018 champion, author Olia Hercules, chef and food writer Gill Meller, Kavi Thakar from Dishoom, food writer and stylist Georgina Hayden and author and chef Zoe Adjonyoh. Food buyers from Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Sourced Market and Partridges also participated.
