not necessary) and just drink! Thinking of new cocktails now..."

Culinary Guide article
Those lovely people at the Culinary Guide have written a beautiful article about us this week.
Here is an excerpt:
"There’s nothing quite like a glass of full bodied red and cheese, fruity
crumble and custard, or a roast with all the trimmings to warm the
heart and cockles on an ice cold eve. When two of Womersley Food’s
vinegars arrived last week – Blackcurrant and Rosemary and Lemon, Basil,
Bay & Juniper (£6.00 each for 250ml) - they seemed perfect for this
seasonal transition and the luxurious deep flavours I crave from now
