Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C., the London brewer and premium pub company, has given a special recognition award in its Master Cellarman of the Year competition, by awarding a Fellowship of The Master Cellarman of the Year 2016 to Angus McKean and Claire Morgan of the Red Lion, Barnes.
This Fellowship has been awarded to Angus and Claire as they have won Fuller’s Master Cellarman of the Year competition three times – a record in the competition’s history – and they are going from strength to strength. As part of this award, they have been promoted to the judging panel of the annual Master Cellarman of the Year competition.
John Keeling, Fuller’s Brewing Director, said: “This special award is to recognise how much Angus and Claire do for Fuller’s and how much they do to promote the Master Cellaman competition. They are certainly a force to be reckoned with, not only a textbook example of best-practice, but the passion and flair they both have for their pub is something I very much admire.”
Angus McKean and Claire Morgan, managers of The Red Lion, said: “This is a great honour and it is a privilege to be able to get involved with a different side of the Master Cellarman competition. I have always regarded this competition as something to really aim for. To win it just once is feels like a massive achievement as the standards of the other competitors are so high, however, to win it three times shows just how much my team really pulls together and I am so proud of what we have achieved.”
