We’re celebrating the news that our American Pale Ale & Bourbon Milk Stout have wowed judges in Great Taste 2013 by being awarded a 2 star and 1 star respectively.
Great Taste is the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme. It’s simply about taste, no branding or packaging, involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting. The judges were presented with our beer in a glass, no bottle or label, and they tasted, conferred and re-tasted before making the decision to award the beers stars. In total more than 12 judges tasted and commented on the beers.
American Pale Ale was commended by the judges for its hop flavour that ‘really delivers’ whilst the Bourbon Milk stout was highly praised for its ‘lovely nose’, comprising chocolate, oak & liquorice aromas.
We entered after only a few months of brewing as we were confident our beers are exceptionally flavoursome and individual – thankfully the judges agreed with us! Out of almost 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2013 just 645 have been awarded 2-star and around a quarter gained 1-star meaning that Sonnet 43 are amongst a mere handful of producers with this coveted recognition. The Great Taste stars are the mark of a quality product and we’re thrilled the beers have received this accolade!
Our now award-winning beers are available to buy online via the online shop.
