Out and about
Last week myself, Holly and Martha managed to visit the Farm Shop & Deli show, which is based down at the NEC in Birmingham. This gave us the chance to source and try out any exciting new produce, as well as speak to current producers about any new items they may be launching.
It soon became apparent that the Gin trend currently flooding across the UK is still in full flow, and for good reason. We sampled some delicious new ranges and added them to our ‘definite’ list, which was already pretty great. Let’s just say, it was a good job we were staying over night and had no need to worry about the driving! We tried Toffee Vodka, Kendal Mint Cake Vodka, Pinkster’s Cocktail mix which included Raspberry Gin, Raspberry Gin Jam and Lemonade, Cranberry Cider, sparkling fruit wines, marshmallow Vodka, British Cassis, prosecco Ice Pops and much more.
On the food side we discovered some delicious Salamis, Sauces, Snacks, Spreads, Pickles and we also ordered some lovely new packaging.
We finished the day off with a mini bar crawl round Birmingham and lots of chatter about the exciting goodies we had sampled.
So watch this space for some of our exciting new introductions which will be arriving soon….
