Duncan and Eli were delighted to be a winner at Northamptonshire Awards and collect the award for ‘Best Local Product’ at this years Food & Drink Awards for our new Balsamic Vinegar Dressing. This is the third year we have entered, and to take the title at last is wonderful, especially with a product launched only earlier this summer. Although we sell nationally and internationally, our greatest following is here in Northamptonshire and so to receive this local award from those wonderful supporters is great and we would like to say thank you to them.

The award was presented at a formal dinner held at Holdenby House by its owner James Lowther and award-winning broadcaster, food writer and editor of Waitrose Kitchen, William Sitwell. The 250 guests were treated to a mouth-watering Northamptonshire menu prepared by Michelin star chef Adam Gray, co-owner of The Red Lion in East Haddon, and the Shires Cookery School. Runner up for Best Local Product was Sauls of Spratton for their Diamond Pork Pie, with Beckworth Emporium winning Best Local Restaurant.
