We had a lovely evening at the 15th annual Free From Food Awards virtual ceremony last night.

Made all the more exciting by the fact that Bax Botanics Sea Buckthorn won a Gold Medal!

Both Bax Botanics flavours were finalists in the Low & No Alcohol drinks category and we were proud to be featured amongst some excellent competition.

Sea Buckthorn not only won a gold medal, it was also runner up in the overall best drink product of the year.

Here is what the judges said;

“Some of the most exciting and innovative developments in the drinks space are in Low & No.”

“Bax Botanics Sea Buckthorn. A delicious and inclusive botanical alcohol-free spirit. It makes you want to go back for another sip, and the judges thought it an excellent substitute for a G&T.
Free of all top 14 allergens, sugar free, and zero alcohol.”

The Free From Food awards are truly unique and all at Bax Botanics are jumping with joy at our success.

They are the only UK award dedicated to free from food and drink.  They have an unrivalled heritage and credibility in this space with their team having worked within the industry collectively for many years and many having experienced first hand what living with food allergies and intolerances really means.

The awards recruit judges for specific categories and always ensure a diverse mix which can include chefs, manufacturers, product developers, dieticians as well as allergy reactors. 

All products are blind tasted by the specialist panels and judged on taste, aroma, texture, ingredients, free from claims & compliant labelling, innovation and the consumer need/occasion they are meeting.

Above all the awards offer entrants a level playing field where small producers and supermarkets compete alongside one another for the coveted awards.
