National Fruit Show Awards in 2020, 2022 & 2023

The National Fruit Show hold a Apple Juice Competition annually. Their shows have been in existence for over 90 years and their October show is the largest competitive display of commercially grown fruit staged in the UK.

2020 was the first year that we entered the competition. The organisers said that the 2020 competition saw a good number of entries giving the judges a challenging task. With that in mind, we are especially pleased that both of our entries won 2nd place in their respective categories! We were able to enter again in 2022 when we were really pleased to win the Blended Juices Category.


Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Awards in 2021, 2022 & 2023

The Taste Awards are run by Deliciouslyorkshire, the Regional Food Group for Yorkshire and the Humber, who celebrate the very best of Yorkshire food and drink. The Awards enjoy record entries across their hotly contested categories before the products are judged by a seasoned panel of industry experts, chefs, supermarket buyers, writers, consultants and food entrepreneurs, who carefully work their way through each of the entries, before whittling them down to the coveted list of finalists. We are really pleased to have been finalists in 2021 & 2022 before being delighted to win Best Cold Beverage in 2023.

2023 Awards

Great Taste AwardsApple & Ginger Juice – 2*
“This is a visually attractive fruit juice with a zingy ginger bouquet. The ginger lifts the apple flavour and it is not oversweet. The combination of ginger and apples really works. It is refreshing and appealing.”
“A lightly golden, natural-looking juice with an enticing ginger nose. It tastes of lovely fresh, ripe apple, with the perfect level of sweetness and acidity and a delicious kick of ginger.”
“This is so refreshing. It’s crisp, with the perfect dry-sweet balance and a clear hit of ginger. We loved this and were happy to award two stars.”
Great Taste AwardsApple & Blackberry Juice – 1*
“A beautiful, rosy juice juice with an aroma of a blackberry and apple crumble. The acidity levels are spot-on, creating a refreshing, enjoyable drink. The blackberries have been added in the perfect quantity to impart a bramble flavour but not to overpower the sparkly notes created by the apple. A great celebration of British ingredients.”

2021 Awards

Great Taste AwardsCloudy Apple & Strawberry Juice – 2*

“A really beautiful, natural cloudy green with a subtle pink hue. Aromas of cooked jam and orchard. Tart, fresh, clean apple roundness contrasting with a juicy, warm, summer, strawberry sweetness. The fragrant and perfumed character of the apple comes to the fore. Really well balanced. Fully textured on the palate with a smooth finish, apple notes lingering for a while. Delightful and well made. Unique and unexpected. A potential ingredient for a remarkable apple Daquari.”

“This golden juice displays aromas of ripe orchard apples and hints of strawberry. The flavour is full on with lovely apple complemented by vibrant strawberry. We like that it isn’t too sweet and that the natural acidity of the fruit shines through. It’s lovely to see a natural twist on cloudy apple juice.”

“A perfect balance of fruit”

“A cloudy and delicate drink – with a strong and flavoursome Cox’s Orange Pippin – you can tell it’s in there. Lots of perfume and deep apple notes. Fresh and delicious. There are some warm summer notes of strawberry on the finish, which are delightful. This juice has great integrity.”
Great Taste AwardsCloudy Apple & Rhubarb Juice – 1*

“Cloudy appearance with a pink hint. The nose is appley. The apple sweetness comes through at the start and slowly the rhubarb tartnesss integrates itself into the lovely apple flavour. We think this is a fab combination of flavours and a balanced juice.”

“Great looking cloudy juice with gentle aroma. The flavour is very clean, pure and simple – the balance between the apples and rhubarb is spot on to give fruit, sharpness and sweetness in this very refreshing, delicious juice.”

2020 Awards

Great Taste AwardsCloudy Apple Juice – 1*

“Deep golden juice, looks a treat. Bright appley aroma, very inviting – with a hint of pear sweetness. A bold sweet juice, tastes pure and natural, full of vibrant apple flavour. A wonderful consistency to drink, this juice is both clean and refreshing.”
