As a prestigious event in this year’s calendar, the Great Taste Awards is one you don’t want to miss if you’re a fan of the finest food and drinks around the world. Every year, fine food producers from around the world enter their food and drink products for the judging panel to decide on their star rating. Judging takes place over the next two months and involves both sampling and discussion with a varied mix of guests on the panel.

For this year’s event, we’re delighted to announce that Fine Scottish Hampers’ joint owner Bruce Bennett has been specially selected to appear as a judge! Bruce will be joining the rest of the panel at the Great Taste Awards headquarters in Gillingham, Dorset for a number of sessions during May and June. He will be demonstrating his expertise in the food and drink industry to form a valuable opinion whilst sifting through the products at the tasting event.


The Great Taste Awards are very well known within the food and drink industry and have even been considered as the ‘Oscar’ awards for food. Winning one of these awards is an honour for a producer to receive as it sets them apart from others in the industry. From a customer’s point of view, a product with an award is an indication that it has had a reliable seal of approval for its taste. Another important part of the judging role is that feedback is provided for improvement and praise is given to those which really stand out. Every winner and judge at the event is a genuine food person who truly has a passion for good food and drink.


Here at Fine Scottish Hampers, we are food geeks first and foremost and love nothing more than to offer our customers the very best food and drink we can get our hands on. One of the many things that sets us apart from our competitors is the expert knowledge and experience we have gained in the food and drink industry. This gives our customers the confidence that when you buy from us, your hamper will contain the finest food and drink currently available. We are always on the lookout for something interesting and different to add to our award-winning produce and to give you the best possible choice. Sampling food is not an easy task, but everything we sell has been tried, tested and above all, tasted by us. So as a result of this expertise and experience, it is no wonder our very own Bruce has been invited by the Guild of Fine Food to judge at this year’s awards!

Our owner Bruce Bennett will be informing us of his progress over the next few weeks so make sure you visit our Facebook page and Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news.
