We respect the past, but we do not believe that leaves no room for experimentation and improvement. The twist of excitement we add to each of our products brings these spirits firmly into the modern era, without ever ignoring the glorious heritage these products have to offer. Call in and see our wide range of spirits and related gifts.

Angela is delighted to welcome visitors to her studio throughout the year by appointmentt. Her beautiful historic Grade II listed building is easy to locate opposite Cromwell’s House in the heart of Ely.
