Drinks producer, Raisthorpe Manor, opens second outlet in Yorkshire retailing a range of gins and vodkas.
The new store, located at White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds, stocks the company’s full range of gins and vodkas including its new Stacker gift set range and latest Great Taste Award winners – Oak Aged Dry Gin, Elderflower, Rhubarb and Gooseberry Gin Liqueurs.
Sales and operations director Oliver Medforth is leading the company’s expansion into retail. He said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our award-winning gins and vodkas to shoppers at the White Rose Centre. This is an exciting time for us with new products to show off and a raft of shiny new awards.”
The company sells its good online but has found that having a physical retail outlet is also beneficial. Oliver continued: “Chatting with customers is great for sparking ideas, we love sharing our drinks and the new shop will help increase awareness of our products.”
Raisthorpe Manor Fine Foods began as an accompaniment to Raisthorpe Flyers, providing homemade Raspberry Gin Liqueur from an old family recipe for guests at elevenses. The popularity of the drink grew and in 2008 the company was set up, creating homemade gins and liqueurs out of the farmhouse kitchen. The business continued to grow and with thanks to funding from RDPE via Yorkshire Forward now operates from a brand-new factory facility in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.
