The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Cisk Pil­sner, brewed by the Far­sons brew­ery, has been voted the World’s Best Czech Style Pale Lager in the World Beer Awards 2017 at a judg­ing event held in Lon­don ear­lier this month. In win­ning this pres­ti­gious award, Cisk Pil­sner beat 18 other coun­tries, in­clud­ing the Czech Repub­lic it­self.

Orig­i­nally brewed by Far­sons Brew­ery in the late 1940s, Cisk Pil­sner was re­launched just last year and has al­ready gar­nered a num­ber of in­ter­na­tional awards in just 12 months. Cisk Pil­sner is a pre­mium Pil­sner com­bin­ing a tra­di­tion of brew­ing ex­cel­lence and pas­sion with the finest qual­ity Pilsen malt and No­ble hops of the Saaz va­ri­ety. Cool, crisp and im­mensely sat­is­fy­ing, with an al­co­hol con­tent of 5.5%, Cisk Pil­sner of­fers the dis­cern­ing beer con­nois­seur a re­mark­ably crisp and well-hopped flavour with a rich white head, a del­i­cate bit­ter­ness and a su­pe­rior aroma orig­i­nat­ing from the rich es­sen­tial oils present in the No­ble hops.

“This lat­est award is a sig­nif­i­cant and ma­jor achieve­ment for Cisk Pil­sner and a won­der­ful trib­ute to the brew­ing team. We are ex­tremely proud of our her­itage and tra­di­tion as well as our un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to the high­est brew­ing stan­dards, us­ing only choic­est raw ma­te­ri­als and ap­ply­ing strict qual­ity stan­dards, and this has once more given us results to be proud of,” said Martin Pol­i­dano, head brewer at Far­sons Brew­ery.

Pre­sented by TheDrinksRe­, the world’s no. 1 on­line re­source for drinks pro­fes­sion­als, the World Beer Awards are global awards that se­lect the very best in all the in­ter­na­tional recog­nised beer styles and award and pro­mote the world’s best beers to con­sumers and trade across the globe.

The process lead­ing up to the an­nounce­ment of the fi­nal results is ex­ten­sive and in­volves an in­ter­na­tional and highly re­spected judg­ing panel iden­ti­fy­ing the best beers in each of the 72 styles. Over 1,900 beers from more than 36 coun­tries en­tered this year’s awards. All en­tries are blind tasted by an in­ter­na­tional panel of ex­perts with heats in Canada, Ja­pan, UK and the USA. Each heat has its own chair who acts un­der the guid­ance of World Beer Awards world chair, Adrian Tier­ney-Jones, who com­mented: “The win­ners in this year’s World Beer Awards demon­strate that the global beer revo­lu­tion is not go­ing to go away any time soon. We have win­ners from the tra­di­tional brew­ing coun­tries of Bel­gium and Germany, while the brew­ing pow­er­house that is North Amer­ica is also rep­re­sented.”

Su­san Weenink Camil­leri, head of Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, com­mented: “We are proud of the results achieved in these global and highly re­garded com­pe­ti­tions. These global awards fur­ther em­pha­sise the world class qual­ity of our beers and boost aware­ness both among our loyal Maltese con­sumers and be­yond our shores.”

Cisk Pil­sner is the pre­mium beer in the Cisk port­fo­lio which is spear­headed by the award-win­ning Cisk Lager and also in­cludes Cisk Ex­cel, Cisk Ex­port, Cisk Strong and the Cisk Chill range.

All beers are brewed, dis­trib­uted and mar­keted by the Far­sons brew­ery.
