With over 14,000 entries to the Great Taste Awards this year, Manuka Doctor astounded judges with its ‘beyond delicious’ Manuka honey.
This is a bouncer of a honey - a mild Manuka with real highs, lows and highs again with the sweetness, dipping to the earthy, savoury tones, then rising again to the heights of flora and fauna, all in a creamy buttery silky honey that just oozes quality and care.Great Taste Judge 2022
This year’s line-up saw food and drink products submitted from 110 countries. Judges included head buyers from Selfridges, Whole Foods, Fortnum & Mason and Waitrose, BBC Good Food editor Keith Kendrick, Delicious editor Karen Barnes, Bake Off contestant and author Chetna Makan, MasterChef Professionals finalist Santosh Shah, food and drink consultant Mallika Basu, the BBC’s Nigel Barden, national journalists and food writers Gill Meller, Melissa Thompson and Georgina Hayden, among many others.
All products are removed from their packaging before being blind tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a Great Taste Award. The judges look for truly great taste, regardless of branding or packaging. They take into account texture, appearance and of course the quality of the ingredients; they will note a good aroma, a decent bite, or a particularly smooth or crunchy texture.
John Farrand, managing director of the Guild of Fine Food, said: “We are chuffed to be unveiling the list of award-winners for 2022. It’s been another exceptional year of high quality, innovation and creativity.”
Out of over 14,000 entries, just 5,556 products received either a Great Taste 1-star award, for “food and drink that delivers fantastic flavour”, a Great Taste 2-star award, for produce that is “above and beyond delicious”, or a Great Taste 3-star award, for “extraordinarily tasty food & drink”.
The Great Taste Awards are recognised as a reliable stamp of excellence among consumers, retailers and major food buyers. They are the largest and most trusted food & drink accreditation scheme.

More amazing reviews from the Great Taste Judges -
Lovely rich, golden colour. the honey has a very powerful and intense flavour. The aroma has notes of flowers and toffee. The texture is very thick, viscous with slight crystallisation visible. A classic Manuka honey with traditional characteristics.
A deliciously thick and intensely flavoured honey with some lovely liquorice notes. Medicinal with bags of Manuka authenticity. Powerful and rich - gently bitter on the finish which leads on to a lingering aniseed-noted, sweet finish.
