Gold Quality Award 2019: OeTTINGER Weissbier regains its title

For the fourth time in total, OeTTINGER Weissbier (can 24×0.5l) has won gold – Monde Selection’s Gold Quality Award to be precise, which has been handed out each year since 1961.OeTTINGER has therefore regained the title awarded to its Weissbier variant three times in a row between 2015 and 2017.

The original OeTTINGER Weissbier is a naturally cloudy, refreshingly fizzy, top-fermented specialty beer, with balanced fruity notes rounding off the full-bodied taste experience.

“The Gold Quality Award is proof of the pleasure, quality and consistency of our export bestseller”, says delighted Managing Director Dr. Andreas Boettger. “It demonstrates that we truly belong in the Champions League of international beers. The prize also provides us with an incentive not to rest on our laurels while offering consumers the best beer at a fair price in the future, both in Germany and abroad.”

The Monde Selection judging panel is made up of an independent team of 70 international experts. The products are rated according to scientific standards. In addition to taste, the judges also consider appearance, texture and packaging. Chemical and microbiological procedures are also used in order to review quality and product safety. For example, aspects such as bitterness and pH level are factored into the overall result in the “beer” category. Each year, the Monde Selection jury tests more than 2,500 different drinks from manufacturers based in more than 90 countries.
