The award means that The Little Red Berry Co’s Blackcurrant Vodka Liqueur will now able to proudly carry the little gold and black Great Taste logo,

Rachel Jamieson,  owner of The Little Red Berry Co: “We were thrilled to be a winner at the 2015 Great Taste Awards. Having worked hard over the last 4 years to ensure we create not only a great brand, but a great product too, sourcing fruit from local producers. It was our customers and stockists who have supported us and given us the encouragement we needed to enter the awards this year”

“It is an even sweeter win for the The Little Red Berry Co when we know the hard work that goes into picking the blackcurrants. Blackcurrants are becoming harder to get hold of due to the work involved in picking them, for the last few years we have had kind permission of local growers who no longer require as much of their yield, which has enabled us to continue making the delicious flavour, however we hand pick most of these ourselves. So we now know all those nettle stings have been worthwhile!”Great Taste Logo 2015
