WESTERHAM BREWERY WINS NATIONAL TRUST FINE FARM PRODUCE AWARDS
British Bulldog, Scotney Pale Ale, Scotney Best Bitter and William Wilberforce Freedom Ale from Westerham Brewery are four of the 43 products from across England and Wales to win a prestigious National Trust Fine Farm Produce Award, the highest number of products to ever receive this much sought after ‘stamp’ of quality.
The awards, supported by Freedom Food and now in their seventh year, celebrate the breadth and quality of produce grown, reared or made on special places owned or managed by the National Trust, including tenant farms, orchards and gardens.
Winners this year include the four bottled beers from the multi-award winning Westerham Brewery in Kent. They will all now be able to use the coveted Fine Farm Produce Award marque to help market their products.
Robert Wicks, managing director and founder of the Westerham Brewery said: “We are proud to win this prestigious award for the fifth year. The judging panel is very rigorous and to come through the process with all four beers winning is a red letter day.”
This year’s judging panel included Henrietta Green, food writer, broadcaster and founder of FoodLoversBritain.com; Lizzie Kamenetzky, food editor of Delicious magazine and Richard McGeown, chef patron at Couch’s Great House Restaurant in Cornwall.
