This new collection brings together four of the very best Great British gins in four unique recipes, drawing inspiration from classic cocktails and our favourite serves.

Academy of Chocolate Award Evening 2018

A big thank you to the Academy of Chocolate for hosting another spectacular evening to celebrate the 2018 awards.

The party was held at Claridges Hotel in London, and with the awards now attracting entries from all over the world, it was an opportunity to catch up with chocolatiers from the UK and abroad. It’s also a great chance to try some of the newly awarded chocolates. Unfortunately, the awards fell on the UK’s hottest couple of days in the past 40 years, so chocolate supplies were slightly limited as most people (including us) didn’t want to risk presenting chocolate puddles.

BBC Good Food Show Winter in Birmingham

Phew, the BBC Good Food Show Winter 2015 has come and gone, and we survived a hoard of some 80,000 visitors over four days! This was by far the biggest show we’ve ever exhibited at, and a heck of an experience (if not an absolutely exhausting one).

We continued the feeling with a stand full of Continue reading So much chocolate, so little time

Paris, The City of Love (and cake)

It’s hard to get away when you’re running your own business, especially if it’s food related. Somewhere between production, planning, stock management, juggling orders, dealing with suppliers and the constant feeling that there’s always more to do, it’s hard enough to find time to sleep, never mind jet off on holiday and leave it all behind.

Sometimes, though, it’s great to just stop and take stock of where you are at. Even better is if you can add a little “research” to the mix, combining work and pleasure so you feel a little less bad about leaving your business baby on the back burner for a few days.
