It has been another fruitful year for us at the Guild of Fine Food’s prestigious Great Taste awards with Luscombe Drink’s achieving a further 15 stars. This staggering number of awards has taken our total to 73 since 2003 – testament to our uncompromising ethos.

What is it about our drinks that make them award winning? We think it’s our obsession with taste, our undivided attention at every step, and our perseverance to source the finest fruit from the best groves, orchards and farms at the right time – some call it obsession, we say it’s all part of our pursuit for perfection.

The judges’ comments confirmed our belief in how delicious our drinks are, with one stating the Damascene Rose Bubbly (available in 32cl and 74cl bottles) as “summery and wonderfully balanced” with another saying it has been “kissed with a rose“!

We had 4 products receive the prestigious 2 great taste stars:

Damascene Rose Bubbly, Lime Crush, Orange Juice and Elderflower Tonic Water.

The further 11 products received 1 great taste star:

Sicilian Lemonade, Raspberry Crush, St Clements, Hot Ginger Beer, Cool Ginger Beer, Mostly Devon Apple Juice, Apple and Pear Juice, Apple and Apricot Juice, Apple Juice with Elderflower, Carrot and Orange Juice and Devon Tonic Water.

The great taste awards are run annually by the Guild of Fine Food and are the world’s most prestigious food and drink awards. the 2017 judging panel consisted of over 500 judges with 62 blind-taste test days. The judges are selected from all corners of the food world, and are helped by specially trained food writers to help translate what they are tasting into a score.
