Congratulations to #nom, Oakchurch Farm Shop and Fletchers Cider for winning 3 star awards from Great Taste.
The judges loved the “thick and smooth, creamy and salty, perfectly pitched” Droitwich Salted Caramel from #nom in Bromsgrove, which is made using a brine salt extracted from beneath Droitwich town and double cream from a nearby dairy.
Oakchurch Raspberry Sorbet from Oakchurch Farm Shop in Staunton-on-Wye near Hereford, described by judges as “raspberries picked at their pinnacle and then preserved in ice, nay not preserved but enhanced, leaving you wrapped up in nostalgic memories”
And the three -year matured Fletchers 1802 Vintage Cider from Fletchers Cider in Far Forest, Worcestershire, was “a drink to be savoured and celebrated” with notes of “toffee and caramel, moving through butterscotch to smoke and bonfires.”
Tailors in Market Place Warwick has recently marked their thirteenth birthday with a refurb. They have new tables, new colour scheme, artwork from a local artists and sewing machines to reflect the building’s former use.
