Ampleforth Abbey cider brandyAmpleforth Abbey cider brandy

We like our beer here in the North York Moors. With at least 160 independent breweries in Yorkshire, craft beer is on the rise over this side too. Pint glass in hand, keep an eye out for these real ales (cider and non-alcoholic beverages too) in pubs, beer festivals, hotels, farm shops and delis, and gift shops.

You can also taste the fruits of the Skinningrove Country Wine Company. Their wine uses recipes based on traditional methods using homegrown or foraged blackberries, cowslips, elderberries, dandelions and more, and fermented using organic sugars and honeys. Find them at farmers' markets and local country shows.

SLOEmotion is also keen on harvesting the hedgerows to source sloes for their range of gin, vodka, brandy and whisky, and nothing goes to waste, with the spent fruit used to produce chocolate truffles and chutneys.
