Customer at the Heart visits Raisthorpe Manor

The roadshow team were today at Raisthorpe Manor, celebrating local produce and innovation. Founder Kate Hardcastle is shown here presenting our award recognising excellence in customer service to the team.

Raisthorpe Manor Fine Foods began as an accompaniment to Raisthorpe Flyers, providing homemade raspberry gin for guests at elevenses. The popularity of the drink grew and in 2008 the company was set up, creating homemade gins and liqueurs out of the farmhouse kitchen. The business continued to grow and with thanks to funding from RDPE via Yorkshire Forward now operates from a brand new factory facility in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.

From there, their products have gone on to win numerous awards and two of the liqueurs are currently being used in the cocktail bars of Harvey Nichols nationwide. All products contain only the finest ingredients (locally sourced where possible) created using traditional methods to create their delicious ranges.
