The winners of Produced in Kent’s Taste of Kent Awards have been revealed, after being recognised as Kent’s ultimate food and drink champions at this year’s black tie event, which was held at the Kent Event Centre, Kent Showground, Detling.
Leading accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy, sponsored the Cider and Perry of the Year category and the winner was Kentish Pip’s Skylark cider which is made at Woolton Farm in Bekesbourne.
Stephanie Durling of Produced in Kent, comments: “We would like to congratulate the winners and all the finalists. This year’s awards have once again attracted thousands of votes from across the county and beyond and the results were once again extremely close.
“We would like to thank everyone who nominated and took the time to vote. It’s fantastic to see just how much people appreciate the produce of Kent.”
Paul Nixon, Partner at Wilkins Kennedy’s Ashford office, commented: "We are thrilled to have been part of the largest gathering of Kent’s food and drink producers at The Taste of Kent Awards. The contribution that food and drink make to Kent's economy should make everyone involved with this industry proud. It was inspiring to see the diverse range of business represented from taste and flavour through to categories incorporating business contributions associated with conservation and the countryside."
