Shaken And Stirred For Christmas
Blood Orange Daiquiri
Artisan drinks producer Raisthorpe Manor has partnered with The Star Inn The City, York to showcase its award-winning gins, liqueurs and ports which make the perfect cocktails this Christmas.

Based at Wharram, deep in Hockney country in the Yorkshire Wolds, Raisthorpe Manor is celebrating its 10th anniversary as well as winning five Great Taste Awards this year for its oak aged dry gin, its elderflower, rhubarb and gooseberry gin liqueurs and its gooseberry gin jam.

Founder Julia Medforth started the business producing homemade gins and liqueurs in her family kitchen. The company has grown over the last decade and now operates a production facility on the farm.

The Star Inn The City, York – one of four Yorkshire venues headed by Michelin star chef Andrew Pern – has collaborated with Raisthorpe Manor to produce a series of sparkling cocktails ideal for the festive season.

Andrew said:
“The Star Inn The City is all about bringing a taste of the countryside to town, so Raisthorpe’s range of country liqueurs are a great fit for us.

“Our bar manager Jamie Castle and his team always offer a very special range of Christmas cocktails to complement festive celebrations and Raisthorpe’s products work especially well at this time of the year.

“Congratulations to them on their ‘first decade’ and compliments of the season to one and all!”
