Our apple juice, Cotchel, wins prestigious three stars in Great Taste Awards
Cotchel, our brand of apple juice made with apples grown on our farm has won three stars in the renowned Great Taste Awards 2018 announced on 1 August. Two other Cotchel juices - Opal and Braeburn - won one star. This is the third consecutive year that we have achieved Great Taste Awards for our apple juice. Great Taste judges described as a “crisp, fresh and well balanced”.
Cotchel is made with apples and pears that would otherwise go to waste because they are too big, too small or too ugly to be sold.
The annual Great Taste Awards organised by the Guild of Fine Food received a record 12,634 entries this year of which under 3% (192) received the ultimate accolade of three stars. The easily identifiable black and gold Great Taste logos have become a stamp of quality recognised by consumers and retailers alike.
We’re delighted to receive this receive this recognition for the quality and taste of our Topaz and Evelina Apple Juice. The award demonstrates that we are making a great tasting fruit juice at the same time of fulfilling our ambition to use fruit we grow but can’t sell into retail and taking steps towards reducing food waste.
Cotchel Topaz & Evelina juice is a medium sweet and cloudy apple juice made from two unusual red apple varieties which are used as pollinators in the orchards.
Cotchel and three other East Anglian products go through to the Great Taste Golden Fork Awards in London on 2 September where one will be crowned regional champion and one 3-star product will be named Supreme Champion. We wait with baited breath to find out who wins!
