TIPPLESWORTH

Tipplesworth is a small drinks business that specialises in making fabulous cocktail mixers and kits plus beautiful vintage-style cocktail cases for the discerning tippler. Based in Teddington, Lady Tipplesworth and her team are cocktail enthusiasts, and completely look the part in their elegant mid-century vintage dresses. Their raspberry mojitos are particularly delicious!

BECKETT'S GIN

Neil Beckett produces his distinctively smooth Beckett's London Dry Gin using just six botanicals, including juniper berries harvested locally from Box Hill in Surrey, and mint grown in his own back garden in Kingston. The Box Hill juniper distinguishes Beckett's from other gins as virtually all others source their juniper from overseas, but the Surrey berries lend Neil's gin a unique, slightly tarter flavour that is beautifully balanced by the sweet mint. Beckett's Gin is very popular locally and is stocked by many local shops and bars.

URBAN VILLAGE CHOCOLATES

After a 25 year career in PR, Deborah Newbury decided to turn her hand to chocolate-making. Since then, she and her husband Mark have produced beautiful, multi-award winning chocolates from their base in St Margaret's. Made with fresh, natural ingredients and free from artificial flavour and preservatives, her delectable chocolates are a work of art, and taste just as good as they look. Everything is handcrafted, sustainable and made in small batches.

CHIMNEY FIRE COFFEE

Chimney Fire Coffee produce responsibly crafted speciality coffee, selling a more-ish range of single origins and espresso blends. The business originated in the Kingston-based lab - cabin (or 'The Labin') belonging to founder Dan Webber, and was borne of his several years experience working in coffee and cocoa traceability in Africa. The business has grown since Dan's early experimentation and now sells to local retailers and online subscribers.

FOLIE MACAROn

Fabienne originates from Paris but is based in Kingston. She first began selling her delicious macarons, madeleines and tarts at the Surbiton Food Festival in 2013. They proved so popular that she decided to turn her hobby into a small business. Fabienne's objective is to make tasty produce using only natural ingredients, and her incredible flavour combinations are testament to that. She also caters for special events such as weddings, birthdays and parties.
