London-based raw fermented foods start-up, Bottlebrush Ferments has been named among the top food producers in the UK this year, picking up a highly prized 3-star Great Taste award for its “vibrant, crunchy and balanced kimchi”, The Red One, along with a 1-star Great Taste award for its “showstopping sauerkraut”, known as The Yellow One. Standing out from the crowd as a record breaking 12,772 products were put through the competition’s rigorous blind tasted judging process, Bottlebrush Ferments was dubbed a “marvel of fermentation” at the world’s most coveted food and drink awards.
Packed with fresh Chinese cabbage, mooli, carrot, spring onion, garlic and chilli, all selected for their natural health properties and naturally fermented using pink Himalayan rock salt, The Red One was one of only 208 products to receive a 3-star Great Taste award in 2019. Commended for its “mouth filling heat, supple vegetables and funky complexity”, this spicy and versatile vegan kimchi was a big hit with the Great Taste judges.
Adding more stars to Bottlebrush jars, The Yellow One impressed with its “eye catching colour” from “comforting and warming turmeric”, which is added to white cabbage, pineapple and fresh ginger, then naturally fermented in pink Himalayan rock salt. Sunshine yellow in tribute to Australia’s beaches, this sauerkraut is “subtle and smooth” with “bite, balance and beauty”, bringing together the sourness of a classic sauerkraut with a summertime twist.
Rich in gut friendly enzymes and probiotics, which feed the gut’s microbiome, as well as vitamins and minerals, The Red One and The Yellow One bring a lip smacking, mood enhancing and immune boosting accompaniment to any dish, from breakfast to dinner. Whether dolloped on a burger, scattered over seafood or served with salad, these two Great Taste award-winners lift the health credentials of any dish.
Both The Red One and The Yellow One are available from Whole Foods Market and Planet Organic, as well as online at bottlebrushferments.com. RRP: The Red One, £6 - £6.50 (250g) or £7.50 - £8.50 (500g), and The Yellow One, £5.50 - £6 (250g) or £7 - £7.50 (500g).
