Brilliantly British: Howards of Kent
I met Claire from 'Howards of Kent' on Twitter and had been curious to try their flavoured spirits for months.
She started making Limoncello to give as presents for christmas and birthdays to friends and family. When she got her own cherry tree, she started to make cherry brandy. As her friends told her she had to start selling it, after a while she decided she would and Howards of Kent was born. All the flavoured fruit spirits are made with vodka and the fruit used comes from fruit farms in Kent.
You can only find Howards of Kent at Craft Fairs so check their website here to find out where they are so you can get some boozy treats to put in this years christmas stockings.
Great British Pizza Company serves Howards of Kent's Limoncello, 'Rhubarb with attitude' and 'after dark'. Lovely of them to serve a British alternative!
So what did I think of the flavours I tried? I loved the fact that they only use the fruit to flavour the spirits, no chemical tastes here just real flavour. I can't wait to try them all!
