Lifting the Spirits
Want to buy a gift for someone as a thank you or for a birthday? What about lifting their spirits with a bottle of local crafted gin, delicious fruit liqueurs or a bottle of Hampshire fizz?
Or perhaps you would like to relax with a local ale or refreshing cider after a hard week home schooling or remote working with frustratingly slow connections!
Please consider raising a glass to the health of our local economy. By buying a bottle of something delicious and local, you will be helping to support a local drinks producer who has lost income streams overnight with pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels ordered to close and events cancelled. Many have turned to online sales with local delivery or collection points. Others continue to be available through delis, farm shops ,village stores and delivery schemes (such as Farmers’ Choice).
Stay safe; support local; drink responsibly
