From a delightful cottage just inside the Wiltshire border, Tiffinie Pride and her partner Christopher have developed a distinctive collection of delicious liqueurs.
Made with far less sugar than traditional liqueurs and introducing unusual fruits such as wild strawberries from France and blood oranges from Sicily, these liqueurs really allow the fruit to dominate the flavour.
Tiffinie has set out to transform the way we think about liqueurs, encouraging new experimental ideas about how to mix and cook with them. Her current favourite ideas include pouring new blood orange liqueur over crepe suzette and adding a few glugs of wild strawberry liqueur into Eton mess – to make a “Drunken Mess!”
These liqueurs look really stylish too. The William Morris inspired labels echo the blend of the traditional with an original twist. And at no extra cost, the labels can be personalised with a name, phrase or event; perfect for a shooting party, wedding, house warming or birthday gift.
There are plenty of inspiring recipe and cocktail ideas on the website as well as lots more information about the range of liqueurs and how to order. Order online and postage and packaging is free.
There are some great summer fairs and shows in and around Wiltshire -Marlborough Feast of Food in the Autumn is a good example. It’s a great opportunity to chat to people who enjoy our liqueurs and hear new ideas. Last time someone suggested adding sloe gin to gravy – brilliant!
