Biddenden Special Mead Wins at Great Taste Awards

Biddenden Special Mead Wins at Great Taste Awards

This year’s Great Taste award winners have now been revealed, with Biddenden Special Mead scooping a 1-Star Great Taste award.  Regarded as the world’s largest food & drink awards, over 500 judges including chefs, restauranteurs, food critics and bloggers taste 12,500 products over 60 days before deciding on the winners.

From the 12,500 initial entries only 3171 were awarded a 1-Star award, which indicates a food (or drink) which delivers fantastic flavour, and the judge’s comments on Biddenden Special mead included “A sumptuous body with good layering of complex notes and rich grape skins…Would be enjoyable lengthened with sparkling apple juice/wine or over ice.”

Julian Barnes, Managing Director, commented “We are delighted to have been recognised at the Great Taste Awards once again, especially with one of our newer additions to the Biddenden range.  We have worked hard to produce a Mead that delivers on taste whilst keeping to our roots of wine & cider making and it is wonderful to see this reflected in the judges’ comments”.

Biddenden Special Mead is produced using modern methods from fermented fruit and honey, sweetened with fine honeys, giving a deep amber colour and deliciously rich, full flavour.  Available direct from the Vineyard shop, online and from selected independent outlets throughout the South East.
