(drinks media wire) Ė In the highly competitive field of global beers, the Scottish based brewer, Tennent Caledonian, has revealed a win of gold, silver and bronze medals at two of the toughest global beer quality challenges: the Monde Selection in Belgium and the International Beer Challenge, which was announced earlier today (20 July 2012).
Three new brands launched earlier this year fared well in todayís results, with five medals awarded for Tennentís Original Export (UK market), Tennentís Scotch Ale and Tennentís Extra (Italian market). This success follows a period of extensive investment in Wellpark brewery over recent years, including the installation of a £4m bottling line and the establishment of the Tennentís Training Academy.
Master Brewer David Shearer commented: ĎOur decision to enter some of our beers into global competition for the first time in a number of years is reflective of a renewed confidence and ambition around the Tennentís brewery at Wellpark. We are really pleased to have been recognised in two of the worldís most prestigious awards this year and Iíd like to commend our team for consistently producing the highest quality products for our home market and abroadí.
The awards are good news for Tennentís and owners C&C Group , as they implement an ambitious export programme for the Tennentís brands, with a focus on key territories including Ireland, Canada, Australia, Italy and the USA.
