Galway woman Brigid Brophy won gold at Blas na hÉireann, The Irish Food Awards, for her Galway Hooker Pale Ale mustard.

Brigid produces eight varieties of mustards under The Lodge Barna Mustard brand name which are sold across Galway and also in Kerry, Sligo and Dublin.

Her quirky mustards also feature on the menus of many Galway restaurants and flavours include the Gold-winning Galway Hooker Pale Ale mustard, a Dingle Gin, Juniper and Lime mustard and a Prosecco and Tarragon Mustard.

Speaking after the win Brigid Brophy said: “I’m so delighted to have won gold in the Irish Food Awards especially as it’s my first year entering the competition.

“I’ve had amazing support from my suppliers, stockists, customers, family and friends with The Lodge Barna Mustards since I started making mustard in 2014.

“Since retiring from running our family business O’Beirn’s Pharmacy in Galway I’ve really enjoyed the new challenge of growing this company taking it from a dream to a thriving business with eight original home-made mustards. It’s amazing to have national level recognition for my mustard.”
