The Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards is an annual competition run by the sector for the sector and which is aimed at celebrating all that is great about local food and drink, recognising excellence within the county’s dining and drinking venues and rewarding those who work so hard within the culinary sector.

Launched in the spring each year, the Awards attract hundreds of entries from restaurants, pubs, chefs, cafés and producers as well as nominations and recommendations from the public and following seven months of judging – including tasting panels, mystery shopping visits, cook-offs and public voting – the competition culminates in a spectacular Awards Dinner in the autumn at which the results in all categories are announced.

This year’s launch took place at award-winning craft gin distillery, Warner’s (formerly Warner Edwards) in Harrington, sponsor of the ‘Artisan Local Drink’ and ‘New Local Drink of the Year’ categories, on Thursday 14th March.

For more details on the launch, please visit our ‘News’ page.
