"Our recent collaboration with Wooden House Design and Media to redesign the bottle labels and pump clips has had measurable results.
"The new designs have really worked to help push sales, attracting the trade, and therefore the customer, to our beers.

John Balodis, of Wooden House, said: "We're pleased that our designs have been rewarded with product recognition.
