Good news! This year's first crop of English Apricot has now been racked off and we have bottled the first batch. 
I know lots of people have been thrilled with the flavour of the Apricots and we will be working hard to make much more during the coming year. I have acquired over three tons of fruit so I hope we will last until next harvest!.

Our latest liqueur. Made from English Apricots this has been a wonderful discovery. We were given 30 kg of fruit in 2014 and asked if we would be interested in buying more. Our test batch of Apricot gin was such a success that we instantly said yes. We acquired 700kg in 2015 and sold all of the bottles by January 2016. After nearly 10 months without any Apricot it is now back on sale.

This year's Apricots were grown in the Isle of Wight as our Northamptonshire growers were hit by frost and lost their entire crop.
We picked them slightly later than last year to get more colour an d flavour and the result is amazing. The nose is very full of Almonds and almost smells like marzipan. However the tatse is a lovely sweet apricot but not in any way cloying.
