Rattler Zero has been recognised as the world’s best low alcohol cider as it was awarded Gold in this year’s International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC).
With over 800 entries to the ‘Alternative Drinks’ category, Rattler Zero scored 95 points after being blind tasted by a panel of industry judges.
The product was the highest scoring low alcohol cider in the competition. The judges’ tasting notes nodded to the cider’s “lightweight, refreshing and fruity” style, complimenting it as being “elegant, fine-tuned and finessed, with a lovely balanced sweetness”.
Healeys MD, Joe Healey, said: “To get an accolade like this for Rattler Zero, a product that sits in an incredibly competitive market, is testament to our hunger to disrupt and innovate within the industry.
“We’ve created a unique fermentation process to produce this 0.5% cider which is under a pending patent – this development is just one example of our commitment to pushing boundaries using pioneering methods.
“With this process, and Rattler Zero becoming one of our hero products, we’re continuing to improve and develop our techniques to encourage productivity and growth, in line with market demand.
