KEEPING IT …
We aim to support independent local producers who are honest about their ingredients and transparent about their methods of production. The drinks are sourced from local ingredients and made with artisan attention to detail which can’t be matched on an industrial scale.
Some of the producers have organic accreditation but many are unable to afford costly Soil Association Accreditations but still use little or no sprays and no artificial fertilisers in the management of their fields, orchards and vineyards.
The resulting products are handmade to the highest standards with modern hygienic equipment, resulting in contemporary individual drinks but crafted with time honoured traditional methods
