More international awards for our beers!

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

We are celebrating again this week after winning more international brewing recognition in the International Beer Challenge (IBC) Awards 2016. We are particularly pleased to win our first ever award for design and packaging with SaltaireXS Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) receiving a Silver award.


Managing Director Ewen said, “We are delighted to have received bronze awards for SaltaireXS Imperial IPA and our famous Triple Chocoholic stout in the tasting category of the IBC awards – particularly when we were up against such strong competition from across the UK and internationally.”


“Our SaltaireXS brand of beers, first brewed in 2014, is aimed at those discerning and inquisitive beer drinkers who are on the lookout for new flavour experiences. This is a third international beer award for SaltaireXS Imperial IPA, and is another fantastic endorsement from the industry, customers and our peers.”


SaltaireXS Imperial IPA’s two new awards join its 2015 World Beer awards when it was voted Europe’s, and the UK’s Best Imperial IPA. Triple Chocoholic (4.8% ABV) has won numerous industry and trade awards, including an International Brewing Awards Gold medal in 2015.
