Natural Umber was thrilled to be awarded the coveted three stars at the 2018 Great Taste awards, from the Guild of Fine Food in London.
Not only that, Natural Umber was also awarded the Golden Fork for Northern Ireland!
Celebrating the very best in food and drink, Great Taste is considered to be the most respected food accreditation for food producers. Judges examine the texture and appearance, quality of ingredients, and most importantly the taste of each entry.
Out of a record breaking 12,634 products entered, Natural Umber was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region.
The Great Taste Golden Fork for Northern Ireland was presented to Natural Umber for its bold and well-rounded organic apple cider vinegar.
Judges commented Natural Umber is “Smooth and easy to drink with water”, has a “syrupy viscosity, sweet apple character and a sharpness, making a grown up and refreshing soft drink”.
The judges’ comments also included:
“…Almost delicious enough to treat like sherry and drink…”
“…Very pure and it feels simple and fresh…”
“…Beautiful colour and fabulous apple aromas. Flavour of apple sings…”
“…This a delicious appley wonder! Simply yummy…”
“…A delightfully rich and sweet cider vinegar with quite firm acidity, but in balance with the depth of flavour…”
