Lakeland Artisan are returning to the Farm Shop & Deli Show in 2021 after such a positive experience and great collaboration with fellow Cumbrian producers at this year's show. The show helped us to increase our brand awareness and showcase our award winning products, all handcrafted in the Lake District, to a wider, more targeted audience. The publicity we received from the show was fantastic and generated new business for us, so we will be back next year to showcase our new gift ranges and products. It will be wonderful working with our fellow producers again, we make a fantastic team and are a great support to one another!

Brewers of bold, innovative beers since 2002, based in the heart of the Lake District. Our range is an eclectic mix of beers inspired both by the flavoursome hops of the new world and classic European styles and flavours. We use local Lake District water that falls on the hills and is filtered through mineral rocks which are great for brewing. The fresh mineral rich water which enhances the unique and refreshing flavour of our beers today. Our Flagship, awarding winning beer, Windermere Pale Ale is a refreshingly hoppy Pale Ale bursting with hop flavour from the signature hop - Citra. Brewed with soft Lakeland water, Maris Otter malted barley and whole cone hops.
Pennington’s Spirits & Liqueurs wasn’t the result of board room meetings or spreadsheets but rather conceived “by accident” after owning Burgundy’s Wine Bar in Kendal for over 30 years. On a quiet Winter’s evening in 1990, I had the idea to create my own products with as much provenance as the selection of wines and spirits from around the world behind the bar – I recalled the recipe for Kendal Mint Cake that I would make with my grandfather and set about creating Kendal Mint Cake Liqueur. I never dreamt that it would leave the confines of the bar and certainly not develop into a whole new business.
