Following 14 weeks of judging, the results of the world’s most trusted food and drink awards, Great Taste, have been released, and many of our artisan producers are celebrating their star awards.
Founded in 1994 and seen as a stamp of excellence, the Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste awards values taste above all else, and all products are removed from packaging before tasting. The 144 judges – food critics, chefs, restaurateurs, retail buyers, cooks, producers, food writers, journalists and “influencers” – decide which products merit one, two or three stars.
Some 12,777 products were entered this year and we are thrilled to be able to showcase and sell dozens of Irish winners including Achill Sea Salt, Pizza Da Piero, Stonewell Cider, Hompun Foods, Wexford Home Preserves, Ballymaloe Foods, Nutshed, Naturally Cordial, Mella Irish Butter Fudge, Ummera Smoked Salon, O’Neill’s dry Cure Bacon, Feighery’s Beetroot Juice, Wild About Foods, Irish Gourmet Butter, Killowen Farm, Keoghs Crisp and of course the inimitable Flahavan’s Oats
