3 bottles of gin, one blue, one pink, one red Dinnewell’s Gin

Dinnewell’s Gin

Husband and wife team Chris and Sarah Dinnewell create an elegant range of gins in the heart of Yorkshire, hand-picking their signature botanicals as well as hand-peeling and hand-drying all the citrus botanicals. Their spirits are made with the utmost care and attention and if you’re looking for something a little different, we recommend Dinnewell’s orange and ginger Old Tom gin with hints of vanilla and a warming ginger finish.

handmade chocolate treats Cocoa Drop

Cocoa Drop

For those with a sweet tooth we recommend stopping by Cocoa Drop’s stand for handmade luxury treats made from the finest Belgian chocolate. Creating exciting new flavours, as well as putting their own creative twists on the classics, shop everything from bars, chocolate lollies and decorated buttons to hot chocolate stirrers, chocolate shards and decadent truffles. Plus, Cocoa Drop make a range of vegan treats so everyone can enjoy their delicious chocolate creations. 

The Slow Vinegar Company

Using roots, fruits, berries and blossoms through multiple stages of fermentation and ageing, The Slow Vinegar Company create small batch vinegars full of flavour. If you’re cooking lamb and roast vegetables, try their award-winning wild garlic wine vinegar. For something a little sweeter, drizzle their blackcurrant vinegar syrup over salads or over ice cream – this one makes a great bread dipper too! 


Influenced by their travels around Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, Spicymonkey have developed a range of unique and delicious home-cooked curry sauces, spices, pickles and chutneys which are easy to use, yet bring a whole range of new flavours to your food. Using their own original recipes, the sauces include everything from a mild Persian curry sauce which goes perfectly with lamb, fish or veggies, to a spicy Jamaican-style sauce delicious with chicken or pork dishes.
