Following on from our massive success at Great Taste receiving 4 Awards, it has just been confirmed that we have been shortlisted for 3 Awards at Blás na hEireann, the Irish food awards.
This means we are in the final 5 in revelation category, with 3 awards being granted, gold, silver and bronze, in each category.
1) Ballyhoura Farmhouse Cider
2) Orleans Oak Spiced Vinegar
3) Apple Chai Shrubs Sweet Drinking Vinegar.
Being in the finals with 3 products, is, in itself a great achievement, as the number of entries and competition has become huge, for the coveted Blás na hEireann Awards in Oct 2017.
Ballyhoura Original Mulled Apple Juice was a Silver Award winner at the 2010 Blas na hÉireann National Irish Food Awards which were held in Dingle in October 2010. Blas is aimed at bringing increased attention to the high quality of Irish foods, especially to the Irish public.
Speaking after the award Maurice Gilbert said: “it is a great honour to have received our first award for our Original Mulled Apple Juice and we look forward to many other awards in the years ahead”.
