Premium Suffolk juice maker, Maynard House has picked up gold star awards for three of its juice varieties. The recently launched Egremont Russet received a 2 star award in blind taste testing from the panel and the Discovery and Cox & Bramley both received a 1 star award respectively.
The Great Taste awards are judged by a panel of over 400 of the world’s most discerning food experts over a 45day period which took place this year in Tipperary, Ireland.
Maynard House Egremont Russet was judged to be “A delicious apple juice with an excellent balance of sweetness and gently rounded acidity. (It has a) gorgeous full-bodied flavour (with) a great mouthfeel (and) has a syrupy richness to it.”
The judges commented on Maynard House’s signature blend Cox and Bramley juice, “It tastes as if you are biting into a fresh apple. This is the sort of juice you would buy again very specifically because of the flavour rather than just to have an apple juice in the fridge. The balance of sweetness and acidity is perfect. It has a pleasant, long fruity finish. Both apples sing from the glass. Sweet Cox in balance with tart Bramley, (it is) refreshing and pure. Excellent.”
The Maynard House Discovery apple juice was found to offer: “The true flavour of Discovery apples. (It is) a very refreshing juice with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. (It has) a nice bright colour, good consistency, (with a) decent clean and refreshing flavour. (It is) a fresh and lively apple juice with great notes of orchard and apple peel.”
Maynard House has recently undergone a full rebrand. With new varieties, smart new designer labels and carafe bottle designs which have created a fresh new looking range for the luxury multi-award winning juice producer Maynard House Orchards.
Owner Clive Williamson says “It feels like a nice reward for what has been a big year for the company; we have undergone such a huge rebrand and the doubling of our range from just five varieties to ten different juices including two non-apple varieties which are Vine Tomato juice and Orange & Clementine juice. We’re totally delighted with the results, especially the comments about our signature Cox & Bramley juice, which always seems to be the juice that people remember us for.”
“We’ve had the most tremendous reaction to our new look. Our bottle labels have been designed to reflect the terroir of the region and include a flavour appreciation scale, gauging dry to sweet to help our customers to choose, enjoy and savour our juices. Quality is absolutely our principle concern. Our clientele is highly discerning so the flavour, quality and experience is paramount. We sell exclusively to the on-trade and only to the top end of the market, the 5-star establishments such as The Ritz, RAC Club, the Mandarin Oriental and Le Manoir aux Quat’Saison.
Maynard House Juice range is available in three easy pour bottle sizes including carafe-style (750ml), single serve (240ml) and mini-bar (200ml).
To complement the rebrand, Maynard House launched a smart multi-platform compatible website which allows for the full range to be purchased online, (except 200ml, for mini bar use only). Visit www.maynardhouse.co.uk
