We are so very proud of our suppliers, the team spends a lot of time finding the right people with a similar mindset to our own.
We talk, we taste, we visit and once we are convinced they believe in sustainability, ethical values and care for their environment, we get very excited! So we wanted to share with you a little bit about why we think they are so great!!
We love bees!! We love honey, we love gin. This was a match made in heaven. These guys supply us with a premium range of spirits, with all the profits reinvested in their bee colonies. They have created a “bee forest”, a pollinator-friendly planting scheme to promote biodiversity.
Drink gin, help the bees, save the planet!
Look out for the soon to be iconic bottle on our bar. We are very excited to be a part of their venture.
LES CAVES DE PYRENE
We focus on natural, organic and highly sustainable vineyards when we select our wines. They have to be of a stunning quality and the growers and producers have to show a passion for sustainability and the local ecosystem. Whilst we work directly with some suppliers (more on them later) for all our non-UK wines we work with Les Caves De Pyrene.
Like us, they believe in promoting ‘natural’ wines, wines that are an expression of their winemaker and their homeland. Made by hand with minimal chemical intervention, and where the wine making shows respect for the environment.
