Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’.
Here at Iberian Deli we are extremely proud to announce that our Spanish Ham picked up a two-star award at the 2014 Great Taste. Following what is the world’s largest blind-tasted food awards, where taste trumps fancy packaging and reputation, our Cárdeno Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (Acorn-Fed Iberico Ham) is now able to proudly carry the little gold and black Great Taste logo.
It takes a lot to decide the worthy winners. Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, farmers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. When a product wears a Great Taste label it carries a badge of honour but more importantly, the Great Taste logo is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product – and hundreds of judges have worked hard to discover the very best through hours and hours of blind-tasting a total of 10,000 different foods and drink.
We always knew that our products had winning qualities. Now it’s official! You can have our award-winning ham delivered direct to your door, or you can come and join us at any of the various food markets we attend for a free taster.
