Great taste, quality ingredients and natural flavours shine through as premium soft drink and mixer brand receives six stars at the 2018 awards
Premium soft drink, tonic and mixer brand, Franklin & Sons, is celebrating another year of success at the Great Taste Awards, with four of its drinks picking up the renowned accolades this year. Having received Great Taste honours for three years running Franklin & Sons has now truly cemented its status as one of the highest quality drinks brands in the UK. Consistently meeting the exacting standards of the judges, the brand can now boast ‘Great Taste Producer’ status.
Franklin & Sons was the only Natural Indian (non-flavoured) tonic water to achieve the coveted 2 stars within the 2018 awards, whilst the Naturally Light Tonic Water also achieved one star. From the soft drinks range Wild Strawberry & Scottish Raspberry with Cracked Black Pepper also achieved the coveted 2 star status and British Dandelion & Handpicked Burdock with Star Anise also celebrated a one star win.
Calli O’Brien, senior brand manager at Franklin & Sons states “We are extremely proud of our range and to have our flagship variant, Natural Indian Tonic Water, as the only non-flavoured tonic to receive two stars is just outstanding. We are continuously blown away by its fantastic taste & ability to bring out the best in all spirits, not just gin, and are absolutely ecstatic that the expert panel at Great Taste agree!”
Calli adds “It’s been an incredible three years, culminating in achieving ‘producer’ status this year. Natural ingredients with real provenance that deliver exceptional taste experiences have always been a focus for us across the entire range. We have the highest possible standards and ensure that only the best quality products, that also reflect the heritage the brand, make it to market.
