TWININGS GREAT TASTE AWARDS 2018
May we proudly present the Twinings recipients of the 2018 Great Taste Award.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that amazing taste is key to any culinary experience. The culinary heritage in Britain is incredible and we call one of the world's most coveted blind-tasted food awards our own – the Great Taste Awards.
In 2018 over 500 judges, including specially trained food writers inputting judges’ comments, came together at 65 judging days from March through to early July. Judging took place at Guild HQ in Dorset and at our permanent office, event and judging venue close to Borough Market, London. As ever we have judged at specialist test centres for tea, filter coffee and espresso. The judges, from all corners of the food world, blind-taste in teams of 3 or 4 ensuring we get a balance of expertise, age and gender.
GREAT TASTE AWARDS - THE 'OSCARS' OF THE FOOD WORLD
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 and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. Hundreds of hours are spent tasting more than 12,000 entries to the competition. Only 37% of this year's entries were accredited. So if you spot the golden star, proudly applied to the packaging of any food or drink, then you know you are about to taste something truly amazing.
