The Little Red Berry Co were delighted to bring home an award win at the local Deliciously Yorkshire awards last week. Their Damson Gin Liqueur fought off tough competition to be crowned ‘Best Yorkshire Spirit’ at the black-tie dinner held at The Pavillions, Harrogate on 1st November 2017.
Founded by Rachel Jamieson in 2011 the award win came at a wonderful mile stone in the company’s 6 year history. With new owner Claire Norton at the helm who took over the business just two weeks earlier.
Founder Rachel says ‘it’s been a fabulous 6 years, but with growing commitments to other family businesses, we made the decision to hand over the baton of The Little Red Berry Co. I was delighted we won this year’s Best Yorkshire Spirit, not only for me to go out on a high, but for Claire to know there is such great support for the products going forward.’
Claire, who now owns the business with partner Peter, their family and the aptly named Wellington the dog, says ‘When we saw The Little Red Berry Co we fell in love with it. It’s just what we’ve been looking for and last week’s award win has given us a great starting block. We are really looking forward to being a part of the Yorkshire food industry and think it has so much to offer’.
The Little Red Berry Co will continue to operate at its rural Ripon base and will be attending a number of Christmas fairs and markets including York St Nicholas festive market in the centre of York starting 16th November, Wynyard Hall 16th – 18th November and many more.
