Great Taste 2015 announces new stars and The Kettle Shed is a winner… with not one but two stars!
The world’s largest blind-tasted food awards, Great Taste, has just released the Great Taste stars of 2015 and The Kettle Shed is amongst the producers celebrating as its Bang On Breakfast is now able to proudly carry the little gold and black Great Taste logo.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and 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 tirelessly to discover the very best, through hours and hours of blind-tasting a total of 10,000 different foods and drinks.
Were ecstatic to know that our Bang on Breakfast has been awarded the coveted Great Taste award! We entered this year because we know the pedigree of the judges, if they liked our tea and awarded us well it put’s us in good stead to know our tea is a great tasty addition to any hotel, cafe or deli! This is what they said about our blend: “An interesting blend. Clean, bright liquor alive and with good, distinct flavours.” On the 18th August we will be hosting a Great Taste tasting event at Detour cafe (135 Askew Rd, London W12 9AU) to showcase our tea to all between 12pm-6pm!
Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with branding and packaging ignored. Whether it is cheese, ale, steak or chutney being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.
The panel of judges included Masterchef judge and restaurant critic Charles Campion, TV presenter and cook, Aggie Mackenzie, Great British Bake Off winner, Frances Quinn, Masterchef the Professionals finalist, Adam Handling, food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, and chefs including James Golding, Chef Director of The Pig hotel group, who have together tasted and re-judged the 3-star winners to finally agree on the 2015 Top 50 Foods, the Golden Fork Trophy winners and the new 2015 Supreme Champion.
