Dorada Especial celebrates its recent awards with a new image (Translation)

27 July 2011

With this campaign, Compañía Cervecera de Canarias wants to highlight its latest international achievements

- Distinctions such as gold medals from Monde Selection, the International Institute for Quality Selections, and two stars from the International Taste & Quality Institute are part of the emblems added to its new label
- The careful brewing process and the quality of its ingredients are the other pillars highlighted in the new campaign

Santa Cruz de Tenerife, July 26th, 2011 - Compañía Cervecera de Canarias has launched the new Dorada Especial image to celebrate its recent quality prizes, awarded by some of the most important international organisations.

The changes materialised in Dorada Especial's new label are a reflection of recent achievements accomplished by the brand, such as the 2011 gold medal from Monde Selection, the International Institute for Quality Selections. This award is a distinction coveted by many Spanish beers, one which no other beer has been awarded, and it corroborates with the recognitions of Dorada Especial in two other editions.

This award is in addition to the recent recognition by the International Taste & Quality Institute, an independent organisation formed by chefs and sommeliers based in Brussels, which has given two stars to Dorada Especial in its Superior Taste Award.

Dorada Especial is one of the most emblematic brands from Compañía Cervecera de Canarias. This translates into the careful brewing process made from high-quality ingredients and 100 percent selected malt, hops and yeasts. Also, its fermentation and ageing time are longer, giving Dorada Especial a more rounded body and allowing it to become a balanced beer, with 13 percent original extract, an intense golden colour and an easily recognisable taste of hops and tropical fruits.
