Muntons Malt customers clean up at Scottish Beer Awards
Muntons, the maltster and malted ingredient manufacturer, recently hosted a table of Scottish craft brewing customers at the annual Scottish Beer Awards held in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on 19th September, an event organised by KD Media, attracting over three hundred brewers and representatives at the ceremony.
Breweries and beers made using Muntons malts dominated the winner’s podiums, with eleven of the possible fifteen gold awards going to their customers. In addition, eight of the nine business awards were picked up by Muntons customers.
Muntons sponsored the “Product Development Team of the Year” award and hosted representatives on their table from Ferry Brewery, Drygate Brewing Company, Fierce Beer, 71 Brewing and Stewart brewing.
Of the 24 awards in total (15 beer awards & 9 business awards) there was a resounding success for Muntons customers, who won a total of eleven Gold awards, five Silver awards, nine Bronze awards and picking up eight out of nine of the Business Awards.
Fierce Beer picked up ten awards with their head brewer, Dominique Bongers, picking up the highly coveted “Brewer of the Year” title. Stewart Brewing also perfumed exceptionally well collecting the prize of “Brewery of the Year”
David Hannah, craft brewing area sales manager remarked: ”A great night was had by all who attended and this event clearly demonstrated that the Brewing Sector in Scotland is still going from strength to strength with great beers truly beginning with Muntons Malt.”
