Premium juice brand, Frobishers, has scooped three coveted stars in the Great Taste 2017 Awards for its juices, juice drinks and cordials, standing out as a star player within the soft drinks category.
The Great Taste Awards, delivered by the Guild of Fine Foods, are the largest and most trusted awards scheme for the speciality fine food and drinks industry. Over 12,000 products were entered this year, with only 35% of those credited with an award. Judged by some of the country’s best-known foodies, including food journalists, buyers, restaurateurs and top celebrity chefs, the awards are affectionately known as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world.
Frobishers newest product range, Frobishers Cordials, available via Waitrose stores and online, Ocado, farm shops and delis, gained recognition for its Peach & Lychee. The innovative flavour was commended on its ‘bold aroma of lychee and peach’, whisking judges away with its ‘tropical notes and hint of the beach’. This accolade adds to the range’s ‘Taste of the West’ win earlier this year, with 3 of the Frobishers Cordials flavours gaining recognition, including Pomegranate & Rose, Lemon & Mint and Sloe & Raspberry.
Frobishers Classics Sparkling Ginger, launched in 2015, maintained its award for the second year, delighting judges with its ‘lovely lasting warmth’ and ‘wonderful aroma of fresh root ginger and galangal’. Whilst Frobishers Bumbleberry Juice, a signature blend of strawberries, raspberries, tart blackcurrants and blackberries won for the second time, congratulated on its ‘beautiful colour’ and ‘wonderful aroma’ along with its unique ‘woodiness’ flavour from the forest berries.
