We have won the highly prized two-star Great Taste award for Eyton Gold! The brewery also won one star for their Old Magic dark mild and Border Bitter, a traditional best bitter. 

More than 14,000 products were put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process; and Eyton Gold was dubbed a “well balanced, well presented and an elegant golden ale”. 

A total of 4,078 products were awarded a Great Taste one-star – ‘food and drink that delivers fantastic flavour’, 1,237 were awarded a Great Taste two-star – ‘above and beyond delicious’, and 241 were awarded a Great Taste three-star – ‘extraordinarily tasty food and drink’. 

Described as “fully flavoured, balanced, very satisfying and tastes as good as it looks”, the Eyton Gold ale was a big hit with the judges. 

The Eyton Gold was one of 5,556 products to receive a Great Taste award in 2022 (which is only 39.1% of the total products entered). 

Recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else. All products in the line-up for judging are blind tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified, before entering a robust, layered judging process.

Judging took place over 90 days across two judging locations (Dorset and London) with a panel of more than 500 judges. This year’s line-up saw food and drink products submitted from a staggering 110 different countries from across the world. 

Our mixed cases of 6 and 12 500ml bottles of beer give you the chance to taste our award-winning beers. They come in an attractive box which is great for gifts. They make the perfect Christmas gift for the beer lover in your life. What’s better than waking up to Welsh beer on Christmas morning and knowing that you’ve supported a small local brewery too!
