Otter Brewery


We are extremely proud to have been 'Highly Commended' in the ‘The Grichan Partnership Sustainable Business Award' at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.

Described as "the Oscars of great British business" by the Prime Minister, this year's prestigious award ceremony took place in front of 1,200 people on Tuesday 15th November at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane.

The criteria for this category specifically looked for initiatives that have embedded ethical or sustainable business practices, helped staff deliver better customer service, increased market share or customer loyalty and supported strong leadership and management. These will also have created competitive advantage, contributed to significant growth, transformed the organisation or wider industry, improved overall financial performance and achieved operational excellence.

We finished second in our category of 10 shortlisted businesses and received one of only three ‘Highly Commended’ accolades given by judges across the 18 categories. Apparently we missed out on the top spot by a whisker - 2 points in fact! We're so proud of all our boys and girls who make Otter what it is. To be up against the rest of the country and get such recognition for our approach to sustainability is a real coup.

From humble beginnings that really came about through Mum and Dad's pioneering vision, the brewery today remains true to those engrained family values, strong eco credentials and a desire to support the local community. Everything we do comes from the heart and that is one of the biggest ingredients to successfully maintaining Otter Brewery for now and the future.
