Top-Quality Artisanal produce from the super southwest
Black Cow Vodka
Organic beer, brewed with integrity – that's what you get from Stroud Brewery. Their speciality is cask-conditioned beer brewed with malting barley grown in the Cotswolds. This hoppy drop makes us very happy indeed.
It's all very well having an awesome gin, but what to serve it with? Lixir would suggest one of their distictivem naturally flavoured tonics. Made with no artificicial sweetners, flavours of perservatives, these are imaginative tonics are the perfect complement to your favourite spirit. Or sip them straight up as a very sophisticated soft drink.
Quality ingredients – many of them locally sourced from around Dartmoor, others from further afield – bubble together in Clare's kitchen, transforming into imaginatively flavoured marmalades, jams, jellies, chutneys and relishes. Awards have come thick and fast, with Clare's Seville Marmalade with Dartmoor Honey being recognized as best artisan-made traditional marmalade in the World, 2018. Not bad going, Clare.
The Somerset Cider Brandy Company
Boasting the UK's only licence to distil cider into brandy, the Somerset Cider Brandy Company produce a range of drinks that can truly be called unique. While their barrel-aged cider brandy is undeniably the star of the show, don't overlook their sparkling ciders, pamonas and liqueurs.
Hog & Tallow
Traditionally, soap was made using fat. Finding they had excess fat from their homegrown pigs, the brains behind Hog & Tallow decided to put it to traditional use. Locally sourced ingredients (many of them by-products) and foraged botanicals go into the range of thrifty but luxurious soaps.
Little Jack Horner
Somerset-based Little Jack Horner makes sausage rolls the way they should be – packed full of meat and wrapped in thin, buttery shortcrust pastry. Ingredients are locally sourced and high welfare, and every sausage roll is handmade by a team of dedicated bakers.
Made in Devon, ghees from Happy Butter are hand churned using organic ingredients. Ghee is a healthy alternative to veg oil and though it's most associated with Indian cuisine, this clarified butter is a delicious choice for any dish.
