We’ve teamed up with fabulous artisan gin producers in East and North Yorkshire to source spirits for our range of Hearty’s branded gins.
After a lot of research (it’s a hard job!), our buying team selected two family-owned businesses to produce the premium spirits for Hearty’s signature gin range. The range comprises premium and fruit flavoured gins from young business, Hooting Owl Distillery near Pocklington in East Yorkshire and fruit gins and gin gifts from established artisan producer, Raisthorpe Manor near Malton. Two of Hooting Owl Distillery’s premium gins and two flavoured ones plus six Raisthorpe products will make up the initial Hearty’s ‘lovingly made’ gin range.
Tong’s Head of Food, Sarah Dwyer is excited about the new addition to the Hearty’s range: “Hooting Owl gin tastes amazing and the story of how they found a recipe for gin when renovating their former coaching house and the provenance of their ingredients made it a natural choice.
“The team at Raisthorpe craft delicious gins and liqueurs using old family recipes and the finest ingredients, often foraged from the local hedgerows. We’re thrilled that they will be making a range of products for us, including their award-winning gins and innovative gin liqueur stackers that make great gifts.”
