Belhaven Brewery has scooped three prizes at the prestigious 2022 Monde Selection Awards. Belhaven Scottish Ale and Belhaven Scottish Oat Stout both won Golds, while Belhaven Wee Heavy clinched a Silver medal.
The Monde Selection awards are judged on five elements – taste, global judgment, visual effect, odour and packaging with all three beers impressing the Jury.
These three classic Scottish beers received the awards in the Beers, Waters and Soft Drinks category and follow a successful 2021 for the Brewery, who opened a brand new Visitor Experience, and won a Country Winner award for Scottish Oat Stout at the World Beer Awards.
Upon hearing about the prizes Matt Starbuck, managing director, Greene King Brewing & Brands said: “We are delighted that our beers continue to be recognised by experts as top in class for consistently great quality product and marketing. Our brewers are passionate that every beer that leaves our brewery is of the finest quality.
“All three of these beers form part of our Belhaven Discovery Range which offer the drinker quality products, but also the chance to explore different beers from the norm. It is great to see them clinch such prestigious awards and I hope many people will continue to enjoy them for years to come.”
Belhaven Brewery, Scotland’s oldest working brewery has been producing a diverse range of delicious and vibrant beers from its historic brewery in Dunbar since 1719. These include Scotland’s best-selling beer, Belhaven Best. From traditional ales to its easy-drinking stout, Belhaven Black, all Belhaven’s beers are brewed with 100% Scottish barley malt, water from its own well and its unique Belhaven yeast.
Belhaven was acquired by Greene King in 2005.
