Ginger Baker’s/Shed 1 Gin Clementine and Cranberry Fruit Cake

Ginger Baker’s/Shed 1 Gin Clementine and Cranberry Fruit Cake

In 2019 we collaborated with the talented Lisa Smith and her team at Ginger Bakers. All the hard work was down to her, we supplied the Gin and then had the very pleasant task of tasting the samples!
We are very pleased to say that both Ginger Bakers & ourselves are National Finalists in the Rural Business Awards (Best Food Producer and Best Drinks Producer). We’ll find out the results in February, 2021. Fingers crossed!
