The world’s largest blind-tasted food awards Great Taste, has just released the stars of 2014 & we are celebrating! Tipple Tails Ginger Tingle fruit cake is now able to proudly carry the little gold & black Great Taste 2014 2 Star logo.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, farmers & a host of food writers & journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan & speciality food producers. When a product wears a Great Taste label it carries a badge of honour but more importantly, the Great Taste logo is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product – & hundreds of judges have worked hard to discover the very best through hours & hours of blind-tasting a total of 10,000 different foods & drink.
I entered the Great Taste Awards last year for the first time & was delighted to receive a 1 Star Award for Tipple Tails Cherry Orchard fruit cake. The Ginger Tingle wasn’t successful last year but the Great Taste feedback I received confirmed my own plans to enhance the ‘tingle’ in the cake so this year Ginger Tingle – with lots more tingle – was entered for the awards & it seems to have tickled the judges taste buds! Now I have two products sporting the prestigious Great Taste 2014 badge & a 2 Star award to boot!
I’ve worked very hard to produce a product that is a truly delicious experience from beginning to end so it is fabulous to receive another such well-respected accolade. I think this definitely calls for a celebration!
