Great Taste
Award Winners

The Great Taste Awards are the world’s most coveted blind-tested food and drinks awards, often described as the ‘Oscars of the food and drink industry’.

Franklin & Sons premium soft drinks range was awarded three Great Taste Stars in total. The Brewed Ginger Beer with Malted Barley and a Squeeze of Lemon was awarded a coveted 2 stars and the British Dandelion & Handpicked Burdock with Star Anise was awarded 1 this year.

Franklin & Sons tonic and mixer range, launched in December last year was also brilliantly received with the Ginger Ale, Natural Indian Tonic Water and Sicilian Lemon Tonic Water, each awarded with 1 Great Taste Star.

‘Love it! Brings back memories – made very well with good carbonation, sweet and with spices – a delicious blend’

Comment from the GTA judges (Dandelion & Burdock, 1 Star)

‘A very fresh ginger juice mouthful followed on by warming barley.The carbonation is very gentle but delightful. Beautifully balanced with heat and sweetness perfectly married’

Comment from the GTA judges (Ginger Beer, 2 Stars)

“Good level of carbonation with a pleasant slightly cloudy appearance. Lemon and quinine bitterness stand out beautifully and last on the palate. Works as a standalone drink but would now like the gin to go with it”

Comment from the GTA judges (Sicilian Lemon Tonic, 1 Star)

Quality Foods
Award Winners

The Quality Food Awards (QFAs) are judged by renowned industry experts and cast a spotlight on products with fine ingredients, beautiful packaging and value for money. All products are first blind tested, then picked up and analysed by hand, as consumers would, meaning that they hold real value in the grocery sector. The QFAs are a real testament to a product’s quality, both inside and out.

Franklin & Sons Cloudy Apple and Yorkshire Rhubarb with Cinnamon was announced as winner of best Cold Beverage-Carbonates at the Quality Food and Drink Awards 2016.

“We will never look at G&T in the same light again!”
