Whether you are buying as a gift or to drink to celebrate a special occasion you will find the finest selection at Lyme Bay Winery. We just love their Brut Reserve and if you haven’t tried Mead before you need to hop over to their website and see the Mead selection on offer, from Rhubarb Mead and a Chilli Mead right through to Waking the Demon Mead! But of course we have Chosen the Christmas Mead because it’s just heavenly.

We can’t say Gin without putting Conker in front of it. Dorset's finest Conker Gin is always a winner, smooth and with 10 selected botanicals including marsh samphire, elderberries and hand picked gorse flowers, all foraged across the Jurassic coast, We are proud of the fact this is distilled in beautiful Dorset.

But brace yourself because amongst the other fabulous things they are brewing up here in Dorset, is Conker Coffee Liqueur, YES! And it is FAB..U..LOUS! But don’t take our word for it, grab yourself a bottle ready for the season of good cheer, and one for the rest of the year too!
