Here at Hamper Lounge we rely on our incredible suppliers to help provide the amazing goodies that we add to our luxurious hampers. In this blog we’ll take a closer look at one such supplier, Raisthorpe Manor Fine Foods…
Raisthorpe Manor Fine Foods first got started back in 2008. This Yorkshire based company originated when the founder Julia Medforth, began offering an old family recipe for raspberry gin to visitors at their popular shooting lodge. The fantastic response to this beverage led to a lightbulb moment, and soon enough the stunning range of liqueurs, which Raisthorpe is now well known for, began to take shape. As well as creating the UK’s very first sloe port and sherry, they have since won a number of taste awards – solidifying a well-earned reputation as leaders in the field of UK-based luxury produce.
Growing the Company
Raisthorpe Manor received funding to create their very own, state-of-the-art gin factory, which enabled a much more detailed gin-making process and boosted the company’s profile. This in turn has allowed the business to really focus on creating tasty treats with an artisan edge, working alongside some of the local area’s finest producers and branching out into the world of fine food alongside beverages. Whenever ingredients cannot be sourced from the estate itself, the company endeavours to support local businesses in Yorkshire.
The Raisthorpe Estate has been frequented by country pursuits enthusiasts for over twenty years, and the idyllic landscape helps lend a quintessentially British flair to everything the company creates, with a taste for the luxurious which is unparalleled.
Exploring the Raisthorpe Range
Raisthorpe Manor creates much more than just liqueurs. The estate draws on its natural surroundings to produce some equally stunning jams, jellies and fruit cakes using fruits foraged from the many miles of hedgerow which surround the manor itself. Amongst Raisthorpe Manor’s award-winning products is the delicious Sloe Port Jelly, as well as the Damson Port which received three gold stars in the Great Taste Awards. Since 2012, the estate has also produced a variety of different flavoured vodkas including the 9ct Toffee Vodka with a delightful shimmering sparkle, ideal for bringing something a little different to your drinks cabinet!
