Local gin producers, Sloemotion, will be serving up a treat with their cocktails at this year’s Malton Food Lovers Festival, working alongside Malton’s much-enjoyed Brass Castle Brewery and the artisan cider producers, Orchards of Husthwaite.
There will be two Festival Bars; one will be located at the back of the wonderful Paley’s fruit and veg shop, along with a range of tempting street food sellers, with an astro turf lawn set up with deckchairs and tables to create a summer’s garden picnic-style atmosphere. The second bar will be set up with a big seating area, as last year, outside the Milton Rooms.
There will be a delicious range of cocktails on offer, some of the old favourites, but some new ones too; each created using their own hedgerow spirits and all distilled at Sloemotion HQ, at Barton-le-Willows, down the road from Malton. Continuing their ethos of respect for the environment, they will be aiming to use as many enviro- conscious cocktail techniques as possible such as keeping waste to a minimum, using recyclable drinkware and using innovative dehydrated garnishes and as ever, capturing Yorkshire produce in a drink!
Their popular Hedgerow Gin and it’s pink cousin, with Rhubarb and Raspberry will be available, both in cocktails and to buy in bottles from their bottle stand in Taverners Yard.
Keep an eye out this year, for the new addition to their Hedgerow range; Hedgerow Botanical Vodka – this sits on the Sloemotion shelf, in the same eye-catching bottle. This is an exciting, new drink, that blurs the lines between gin and vodka. Think Hedgerow Botanical Vodka and a premium tonic, with plenty of ice and a slice of apple, or try a punchy Bloody Mary to set you up for the festival day.
