Ben's Biltong

The Butchery, Church Farm, Church Lane, Budbrooke, CV35 8QL

 

Ben's Biltong was born out of the need to keep my South African wife in good supply of her favourite high protein snack. As more family moved over from South Africa and friends becoming hooked, biltong production was quickly becoming  a full time job - so a full time job it became. Family, friends and an array of loyal customers are now enjoying my meaty goodness, and (hopefully) so will you!

 

I use the finest British, European and African meat, gently spiced by hand and slow dried for quality and flavour. I only accept the finest silverside cuts.

 

Based in the Warwickshire countryside, my small facility is ideally situated to distribute Biltong around the country. Over 25 years in the food industry I have developed a keen eye for detail and can ensure that Ben’s Biltong will reach you in the finest condition.

Comesto Elizabeth Court, Church Street Stratford upon Avon, CV37 6HB

 

Comesto is a new digital platform for the hospitality industry, bringing together buyers and suppliers.  Hospitality tech is big news, with current industry solutions centred around pulling in more customers, looking after them and getting return visits - the obvious and more glamorous approach. But the market is also actively asking for business solutions to drive the back end - ordering, invoicing, delivery scheduling. How to source the best goods and services at the best prices and not just F&B, but everything needed to run the business.

 

If you supply the industry as a wholesaler, or a producer, Comesto connects you to your customers via the same platform. Receive enquiries and orders, arrange deliveries, market your new goods and special offers and with the Comesto app, do business on the road or at your client’s premises compiling orders on the fly.

Empress Ale was Born from the founder wanting to give consumers the opportunity to order a truly unique craft British ale (with a modern twist) when visiting his favourite restaurants.

With a passion for craft beers and ales, founder Surj Virk wanted to provide an alternative choice to the culinary habit of lager with spiced foods and was inspired to create a refreshing, easy drinking ale that truly complemented his favourite dishes.
 

Proud to be a premium ale brewed here in the UK, Empress Ale has taken its inspiration from both Indian and British Heritage. Based on the traditional recipes of old, we have used a unique blend of malts, hops and wheat to provide the perfect pairing for even the richest of curries and spiced dishes.

Shakespeare Distillery is an artisan spirit producer. Everything we produce is in small handcrafted batches, ensuring we can devote our time and attention to creating the best tasting spirits around. Being based in Stratford upon Avon, we wanted to create something true to our area and what is more authentic than the Tudor period in which Shakespeare lived?  A significant time for spirit production, it was a time of change; and thanks to Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries the Tudor period became a time of great discovery, experimentation and innovation within the world of spirit production.

 

At Shakespeare Distillery we aim to recapture this period of innovation by fusing traditional, and in some cases forgotten ingredients with modern techniques to create exciting new spirits. Our award-winning Stratford Gin captures the flavours and herbs from the Tudor knot garden, combining them with the boldness of juniper and sweetness of citrus. The Mulberry tree is synonymous with tudor Stratford and our Mulberry Gin celebrates this history; fantastic when drunk with sparkling white wine as a gin fizz! Rhubarb was commonly used to cure ailments in Tudor times, has since become a British favourite.

 

We extract Rhubarb juice using a fruit press and blend it with our award-winning Stratford Gin to produce a deliciously sweet and tangy Rhubarb Gin. March 2019 also sees the opening of our new Distillery Tours and Gin School at our new base in Stratford upon Avon. Corporate gift ideas are also our speciality. Truly Gins with a twist of history!
