We’ll drink to that!

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Monty’s Brewery has won another three Great Taste Gold Stars at this year’s prestigious awards.

The local brewery has followed up its 2017 three stars for their gluten free oatmeal stout Dark Secret in the beer and cider section by receiving the same accolade in the gluten free category, the only three-star winner in the whole of the gluten free category!

Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world, so to win three gold Stars two years running is exceptional.

Over 500 judges, including specially trained food writers inputting judges’ comments, came together at 65 judging days from March through to early July. The judges, from all corners of the food world, blind-taste in teams of three or four ensuring a balance of expertise, age and gender.

Russ Honeyman, Commercial Director for Monty’s, said: “We are ecstatic about this, when we won last year with Dark Secret we thought it was incredible, and knowing how strong the competition is we thought we wouldn’t do that again. But here we are, unbelievable, this time in the gluten free category.

“It has certainly opened a few doors for us in the last year, now we shall have to see what it brings us this year. I know we have an order for going out to Finland, and after Taste of London in Regent’s Park and the Royal Welsh more people throughout Wales and the UK will be aware of us too.

“It was great that Masquerade got one star also, our other gluten free beer.”

So what do the Gold Stars mean:

Three stars – Exquisite. Less than 3% of all products are awarded 3 gold stars. Don’t leave the shop without buying it!

Two stars – Outstanding. Above and beyond delicious.

One star – Simply delicious.
