Winners of the 2016 awards
presented by Antony Worrall Thompson on 26th April 2016 at the Royal College of Physicians in London
Down the pub and the bar – Sponsored by the Food and Drink Innovation Network
‘Wow! The light colour is deceptive – wonderfully rich – a real treat with rich foods. Deep flavour for a light coloured beer but not overly robust; well balanced with an accessible depth of flavour and a satisfying finish.'
‘Great gluten-free puff pastry! Yummy, cheesy flavour and excellent that you can eat them straight from the pack. Crisp and delicious – excellent savoury snack.'
Stringers Beer Outlook Amber
‘Rich chestnut colour, lovely aroma. Slightly acidic on tongue but also sweet. Very drinkable on a warm day – enjoyed the flavour.'
Kent & Fraser Cherry, Pecan & Poppy Seed Toast
‘Lovely concept. Nice flavour combination, and beautiful colours. Different textures very pleasing, a good bit of crunch here and chewiness there, and the fruity sweetness would be nicely matched with cheese.'
Tesco Free From Onion Rings
‘Wow! Gluten-free onions rings - what a find that would be in a pub!! Onions quite sweet but the batter is crunchy and light – a very nice coating. And how good that they can be heated in the oven – no cross contamination issues with deep frying oil.'
CELIA Dark Czech Lager
‘Very light, slight citrussy note. Green colour more like an old ale than lager – sweet notes with caramel – deep and refreshing.'
St Peter’s Brewery G-Free
‘Very nice for easy drinking. Good fresh, hoppy aroma – maybe a little more carbonisation for more texture?'
Organico Realfoods Luke’s Organic Kale, Multigrain & Seed Chips
‘These look great – crisp and crunchy – good ingredients and great that they are dairy, gluten and soya free. Quite plain but lots of good grains.'
