Mourne Mountains Brewery & Deli Lites Winners of the Great Taste Awards

Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food & drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.

Mourne Mountains Brewery achieved a 2 star rating for an incredible 3 products including their Mourne Mist Pilsner, East Coast IPA & Big Rock Wheat Beer whilst Deli Lites achieved a 2 star rating for their delicious Seeded Ginger Cake Traybake.

The winners are all genuine food people who care about the quality of food and drink they produce. Those producers entered 12,366 products with only 165 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, 3 stars. We had 1011 foods grabbing 2 stars and 3171 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 35% of entries were accredited – it’s tough & this makes the success of these two local businesses all the more impressive.
