Deliciouslyorkshire Awards 2018

As a Yorkshire based business with strong connections to the brewing industry we are delighted to sponsor the Best Yorkshire Beer category in the Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards, 2018.

Living in the Yorkshire Dales we are lucky enough to experience and sample so much of the fantastic food and drink that this foodie county has to offer, as well as to meet many of the artisan producers who dedicate so much of themselves to their craft in a difficult and competitive market.

The Deliciouslyorkshire taste awards are a celebration of the vibrant food and drink scene that exists throughout Yorkshire and the Humber. Entries are judged by a panel of industry experts, with all the products being blind tasted. The Deliciouslyorkshire award is a mark of quality, achievement and recognition. We can’t wait to discover the category winners – especially in the Beer category – and attend the awards night black tie event on the 7th November at the Pavilions, Harrogate. Good luck to all the entrants!

Price Increases

David and I are very sorry to have to finally give in. Given current conditions in the industry we’ve had to increase our prices with immediate effect.

Over recent months our sector has been hit with multiple and significant price increases in our raw materials. We’ve had at least three price increases of between 7% & 8% each time. Furthermore, suppliers are planning to increase the cost of corrugated board even further. This is due to an acute shortage of paper and board, with paper mills struggling to keep pace with demand and the upsurge in online trading during the lock-down.

The situation has been widely reported on and does not seem set to improve significantly any time soon.

By planning ahead and making arrangements with our suppliers we have managed to mitigate the impact on availability and lead-times, and have pretty much traded as usual, with only slight delays in most cases.

Until now we have held our prices and tried to absorb the impact. Unfortunately, this cannot continue.

We thank you for your understanding and for your very valued business.

David and Bernadette
