Raisthorpe Manor’s Julia Medforth was full of hot air this week as she organised a quick fly-by at Drewton’s Farm Shop!

Owner Katie Taylor was one of two Yorkshire suppliers who took delivery of a big bunch of helium balloons this week for Valentine’s Day, which will be given away to customers who buy one of Raisthorpe’s delicious, handmade liqueurs, preserves or chocolates in the run up to February 14th.

Drewtons’ Katie Taylor said: “We were delighted to receive the gift of balloons from Julia, though the bunch was so large and it was so windy we were worried that we might float away too! We’re sure our customers will love to take one of these home with them when they visit our shop.”

Julia added: “Whether it’s bags of chocolate clusters for a sweet-toothed sweetheart, a fruity fancy for a fiancée, or one of our luscious liqueurs for a loved one, we hope we’ll have a tipple for all tastes. And, what better way to say ‘I love you’ than with a romantic balloon!”

To get a feel for Raisthorpe’s Valentines gifts and goodies, pop along to one of two tastings between 11am-3pm at Castle Howard in York on Saturday February 9, and Drewton’s Estate Farm Shop near Brough on Wednesday February 13, where you’ll get a chance to sample Raisthorpe’s new Wild Vodka Liqueur range, including Toffee & Caramel, Chocolate and Green Apple, or be in the pink with a sip of its Raspberry Gin, Sloe Gin and Sloe Port.
