We are passionate about maintaining the beautiful environment that we live in.' Becca 

 

Whitby Gin

Taken from Whitbydistillary.com:

 A small still and the start of a business plan. Not exactly what we’d expected to come home with from a camping trip to the Outer Hebrides. A very different kind of souvenir.

So inspired were we by the islands’ artisan gin-makers that we’d soon be swapping our desks for the distillery and trading the daily commute for foraging in the open air. 

Having never distilled anything before, we had a lot to learn. But, what we lacked in experience we made up for with passion and dedication. Our vision was to create a quality gin which would celebrate the diverse natural landscape of the place we’re lucky enough to call home. 

It didn’t take long to establish our signature botanicals: heather foraged from the North York Moors, sugar kelp and local honey, each selected to champion one element of the North Yorkshire coastline.

With our core ingredients finalised we set about developing an extensive library of flavours. Family and friends (bravely) offered to help taste-test until, finally, we found the perfect combination.

Raisthorpe Manor

Nestled in a beautiful dale within the Yorkshire Wolds you'll find our farm, Raisthorpe Manor. We are blessed to be surrounded by the finest natural water springs and wild ingredients, inspiring the creation of our gins, spirits and food.

In 2008 we created our first bottles of gin out of the farmhouse kitchen. Quickly our home made Gin got recognition and a growing demand. Over the years since then our range has grown into different spirits and food items. We have gone from strength to strength and picking up awards along the way, to date we have received 52 awards across our range of products.

We pride ourselves on only using the finest ingredients (locally where possible) and avoiding flavourings. All of our gins and spirits are created using traditional methods and handcrafted in small batches, ensuring the finest quality.

Better still, it will absorb huge amounts of carbon and release oxygen into the water as it grows – making it good for you, good for industry and good for the environment.

The Baytown Coffee Company

In 2013 four friends with a love of great coffee decided to create a brand that filled the coffee void on the Yorkshire coast – a company that would make it easy for people to enjoy really, really good coffee.

It’s a simple idea. We avoid the pretentiousness that’s so often served up alongside good coffee, expose people to better quality than they’ve ever had before, and concentrate on making it fun. After all, last time we checked coffee was all about making you feel good.

We’re hell-bent on helping you enjoy the best quality coffee in a way that works for you. To make sure that happens, we source the highest quality beans, hand roast them and get them to you quickly so you enjoy the freshest, most delicious coffee possible.

Ammonite Soaps by Ruth at the Mounthouse Whitby

Noted from https://mounthousewhitby.com:

Essential oils scent the soaps. Rosemary and lavender grow happily in the garden at Mount House. These plants inspired the choice of scent and a little warming cedarwood was added. The soaps contain bladderwrack (bladderwrack adds nutrients not found in land plants), and the more authentically coloured black soaps have additional black clay and charcoal.

Yorkshire Pudding Beer

Notes taken from www.yorkshirepuddingbeer.com:

The most popular question we get asked about our Yorkshire Pudding Beer is "do you make it with Yorkshire Puddings?" The answer to that is YES

The beer is made with Yorkshire Puddings from the Yorkshire Pudding Pie Co based just down the road from us in Malton.

The Yorkshire Pudding Pie Co are a family-run business and they make their Puddies with the finest ingredients

The eggs they use all come from free range chickens from a farm in East Yorkshire and the milk comes from a single herd farm based on the Yorkshire coast.

You can't get Yorkshire Puddings anymore Yorkshire than this!! There is half a Yorkshire Pudding in every 500ml bottle!!
