Gluten Free 6X Gold gets The Vegan Society stamp of approval

Wadworth’s gluten free and vegan beer 6X Gold has received a stamp of approval from The Vegan Society awarding it the Certificate of Registration Vegan trademark.

6X Gold was originally brewed as gluten free and went vegan in 2018.  The beer was certified by Coeliac UK in 2017 and has also won the Taste of the West awards and achieved Bronze in the International Beer Challenge.

Speaking about The Vegan Society recognition, CEO for Wadworth, Chris Welham said, “we are delighted to receive this recognition for 6X Gold.  It’s a fantastic beer that vegans can enjoy too and we are proud to receive this accreditation”.

6X Gold is brewed using Caramlat, Pale Ale and Munich malts with Flaked Barley and Pioneer, Admiral, Cascade and Pilot hops. Gluten derived from the barley is removed during the brewing process. The beer is hoppy and refreshing with sweet malt and spicy notes on the palate and has a zesty citrus aroma.
