Great selection of drinks for you this year –why not try the local Four Acres Estate English sparkling wine, both white and rosé; Corney & Barrow’s fine red, white and sweet wines as well as a range of craft ales and beers.

The ever-popular gins –local One Time Gin whose bottles carry such eye-catching art, Pinksters Gin and their Christmas cracker is certainly well worth pulling with its mini gin jam and dinky bottle; smooth Warner & Edwards Gins made from the farm’s natural spring water and homegrown botanicals and Two Birds, again with flavours inspired by the country have added their own branded gin goblets.

James Eadie’s single malts and Trade Mark X the renowned blended whisky recently revived from an 1850s recipe.

Moonshine spirits and liqueurs too, handmade with sweet potato in copper stills, they pack a punch but don’t burn as you sip.
