A Great Taste in our Mouths....

A big hello to you all. I hope you didn't miss us too much last week. We were all working hard on the shop floor for one of our larger orders, so no time for blog writing and Social Media updates.  Anyway, some exciting news for you all right here; This years #GreatTasteAwards are out and we are pleased to announce that we have won an award for our fantastic tasting #RhubarbandGingerGin. To quote the judges; "fresh and complex aromas", "a lovely indulgent mouthfeel with a slightly syrupy texture". (To you and me, it's simply a great tasting drink to...

A Day at the Races!

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be taken to the races on behalf of the company. We are all very grateful to Tori and Hannah for organising this and had a fantastic time. It's fair to say we're feeling a little jaded today, and have lighter purses and wallets, (all apart from Aaron who appeared to be racking in the wins), and a kitchen full of biscuits to help us through this day! Honestly, it's tough having a hangover and working in an alcohol fuelled environment, but we wouldn't change it. The picture shows a 2 thirds of our dedicated team and was...

World Chocolate Day. I literally couldn't be any happier.

So technically this was on the 7th, but I'm going to take on the World, and change that to today! It's only 4 days late after all. (And if you celebrated it on Saturday, then lucky you, 2 days in one week). It's not like I need an excuse to eat chocolate. My brain tells me every day is World Chocolate Day. But at least today I am going to give myself a break and enjoy all things chocolate, guilt free!!  I have an absolute treat of a cocktail for you all today to celebrate! ***Chocolate Vodka Frappuccino***. This is...

A New Partnership

A New Partnership

As you all know by now, because I keep banging on about it, we have been working closely with Lilley's Cider, just across the road from us. Convenient!! Also convenient, is that the 10th July is apparently "National Don't Step On A Bee Day" If you say this out loud to yourself, it sounds like "Don't Step On A Bidet" Lols. I mean, personally I don't think you should step on either, on any day of the year but we all love a National Day to remind us of these things, right?  Whilst not stepping on bees (just don't do...

Summer Has Officially Started!

21st June saw the official start of the Summer, and what a glorious week it has been so far. Blue skies and blazing Sun a plenty. But I'm hearing you, it's lovely if you're able to cool off in the pool, or take a leisurely dip in the Sea but working 9-5 all day, glaring out of the window wishing you were somewhere else...not so fun.  We recommend you make the most of these long, clear evenings by sitting out in your garden, feet dipped in the paddling pool, winding down with a Lilley's Bee Sting Cider and Raspberry Mint...
