Cisk Strong awarded Gold in Women’s International Trophy

Cisk Strong has just been awarded a Gold medal in the German-style Heller Doppelbock category in this year’s edition of the Women’s International Trophy held in Mainz, Germany.

This is a unique top-level competition in which the international jury is made up entirely of women. All the tasters, sommeliers, oenologists, etc. are experts in the field.

The competition is recognised by the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Agriculture and is certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard. Thanks to this certification, producers are assured of the highest standards of quality and perfectly organised tastings.

With nearly one thousand samples tasted in the 2024 edition, the popularity of this competition is clear. Wines, beers and spirits are awarded medals only after a rigorous selection process with high added-value. Each sample is blind-tasted by an international jury composed only of women, all experts, and marked on the basis of sensorial analysis criteria. To guarantee a selection of only the best products, the competition awards medals to no more than a third of the samples presented.

“We are extremely proud of this recent award for Cisk Strong. Owing to its high alcohol content, Cisk Strong is not a mainstream beer, however it is brewed to very high standards and is of a very high quality, testament to the care that we put into brewing it, as stated by the competition jury. Being recognised as one of the best in its category for any of our beers is an honour that is always appreciated,” commented Mr Eugenio Caruana, Chief Operations Officer at Simonds Farsons Cisk plc.

Cisk Strong is an outstanding premium lager brewed from barley malt, with a full-bodied flavour and a distinct sweet taste. With an alcohol content of 9% ABV it is not for the faint-hearted.

Mr Michael Farrugia, Deputy Chief Executive (Beverage Business), said that “Cisk Strong is a key player in our international strategy and these achievements help to boost significantly our efforts in this direction.”

Cisk Strong is part of the Cisk portfolio, all brewed, distributed and marketed by Simonds Farsons Cisk plc, and is a recipient of other international awards.
