A Skilled Photographer and a New Cocktail Recipe, Just For You.

Things are going so well here at Friary, that last month we hired 2 more staff to assist with the influx of orders, and help with the ever growing, liqueur consuming society that you are. They're a brilliant and positive addition to a growing team. And who knew, one of them came with previous photography experience? This got me off the hook with my ropey imagery, and severe lack of creative skills. So I'm looking to learn a thing or 2 and build up the skill bank with some assistance from Claire. Meanwhile, she's been beavering away, creating some stunning...

A Trip to Cheddar

Today I've been lucky enough to be out and about meeting some of our lovely customers in Cheddar Gorge. It's a beautiful part of the country and it's on our doorstep.  The Original Cheddar Cheese Company is a family run business offering lovely cheeses and carefully selected local produce. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to be stocked in their shop! They've also included our Star Gift Bottles in their gorgeous hampers they have created. It really is a glorious place to visit, with mountain goats, cliffs and caves to explore. Unfortunately my photography (non) expertise doesn't spread to the mountain goats....

A Busy Month

A Busy Month

Here at Friary we've been very busy bees, working away on our busiest August on record! We've even had to bring in the original Master Blender (picture above) for assistance. I think you'll agree he looks rather fetching, if a bit grumpy, in his get-up.  We have had some big customer orders, as well as preparing for some up and coming shows. Not forgetting trying to get ahead of (dare I say the dreaded word?) Christmas (sorry).  This is just the way we want it! And we'd like to say a huge thanks to all our past, present and existing...
