Scottish brewer Tennent Caledonian has won gold, silver and bronze medals at two of the toughest global beer quality competitions – the Monde Selection in Belgium and the International Beer Challenge. Three new brands launched earlier this year fared well, with five medals awarded for Tennent’s Original Export (UK market), Tennent’s Scotch Ale and Tennent’s Extra (Italian market). This success follows a period of extensive investment in Wellpark brewery over recent years, including the installation of a £4 million bottling line and the establishment of the Tennent’sTrainingAcademy.

Master Brewer David Shearer comments: “Our decision to enter some of our beers into global competition for the first time in a number of years is reflective of a renewed confidence and ambition around the Tennent’s brewery at Wellpark. We are really pleased to have been recognised in two of the world’s most prestigious awards this year and I’d like to commend our team for consistently producing the highest quality products for our home market and abroad.”

The awards are good news for Tennent’s and owners C&C Group, as they implement an ambitious export programme for the Tennent’s brands, with a focus on key territories including Ireland, Canada, Australia, Italy and the USA.

The Tennent’s business has been brewing since 1740 at the historic Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow and is today the oldest running commercial concern in the city. The business was purchased by C&C Group in August 2009:
