Absolutely thrilled our Sussex Beef Bresaola and Sussex Venison Bresaola are winners of Great Taste 2017: the world’s most coveted food awards.

There were 12,366 Great Taste entries this year and our Sussex Venison Bresaola was one of just 1,011 products (8%) to receive a 2-star award – judged outstanding.

“Nicely balanced flavours, restrained smokiness and gentle spicing, which allows the venison to shine through.”

“A long finish”

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.

Our Sussex Beef Bresaola was awarded a one star, which stands for ‘simply delicious’ with judges comments including:

“Extremely well judged spicing; bold but not so much as to overpower the beef.”

“Lovely smokey aroma, winey colour and good fat distribution.”

“The herby aroma is really appealing… lots of smells of the countryside.”

We strive for the very best quality at Sussex Gourmand and these awards are recognition of that commitment.
