We are delighted that two of our brand new Troughtons Premium range products scooped both a silver and bronze award at this year’s Blas na hÉireann, the Irish Food Awards – the biggest competition for quality Irish produce on the island of Ireland.
Over 2500 products were entered into the competition to win awards in a broad range of food and drink categories. The standards were very high and we are delighted that our new Cucumber & Mint Tonic won silver and our new Cloudy Sicilian Lemonade secured bronze in the carbonated drinks category.
The Blas Awards are the biggest blind tasting of produce in the country. To receive these prestigious awards from such a distinguished and knowledgeable panel of expert judges – chefs, food writers and retailers – in a blind tasting is a great stamp of approval for us.
The Blas award logo is the guarantee of a top quality Irish product and a tremendous boost for an artisan company like us and our products and will no doubt help our continued growth in Ireland.
It is wonderful to win such a prestigious awards for our new products during such an unsettling time and it is a great acknowledgement of the incredible hard work of all of our wonderful staff who have helped make our award-winning drinks, ensuring the high quality we demand is captured in every drop.
So why don’t you try our delicately balanced, refreshing cucumber and mint tonic! We have blended sparkling County Armagh spring water with a refreshing combination of cucumber, fresh garden mint and African quinine to make this revitalising tonic for your drinking pleasure. It contains no artificial sweeteners, flavourings or preservatives. The judges loved it and we’re sure you will too.
We are so proud of our Cloudy Sicilian Lemonade. We have blended fresh, sparkling County Armagh spring water with the best Sicilian lemon to create a zesty and refreshing traditional lemonade that is naturally delicious and there is not a drop of anything artificial. It is perfect for parties, but you might not want to share!
