Last year’s winner, Emma Budd, a dedicated NHS worker, had the opportunity of a lifetime as Aldi’s first-ever Official Beer Taster. Emma’s love for beer took her on a global beer-tasting journey, trying out local brews from an impressive 51 countries. She described her title as a “career highlight,” relishing the excitement of tasting and sharing beers before anyone else.

Julie Ashfield, the Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, emphasised the importance of innovation and excitement in their beer range. The previous winner’s opinions were instrumental in shaping last year’s product offerings, especially the flavoured beers. Now, Aldi is eagerly waiting to see what this year’s applicants will bring to the table.
