You may have noticed that my social accounts were buzzing last week with photographs of Christmas decorations, foods and drinks… I was living it up at the Booths store in Penrith experiencing the launch of their fabulous Christmas range of products. I absolutely love Christmas so I was in heaven!
I was greeted with a glass of prosecco on arrival and bumped into a fellow blogger Kiri, from Kizzy and Izzy. Although we’d never met, we have spoken online for some time so it was nice to put a friendly face to the name! We bonded over a glass of prosecco and enjoyed the stream of delicious canapés that were brought from the kitchen.
Booths is a family-owned supermarket with stores throughout Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cheshire, that provides high-quality products by a selection of passionate producers from across the North West and beyond. The Christmas range at Booths has always had a fantastic reputation, although I’d never tried it personally before now.
I picked up a copy of the Booths Christmas catalogue to flick through at home and mingled with others, finding out about the products and their producers. It was great to find out that Bell’s of Lazonby, a Cumbrian company, provide a whole range of baked goods to Booths. Their mini Stollen bites and chocolate orange brownies are incredible and very moreish!
The range of wines, beers and spirits on display made me wish I had brought a designated driver! There were bottles of local ales, spirits by The Lakes Distillery and a particularly impressive Elephant Gin at 45% ABV. I’m not the gin connoisseur in our house, that would be the husband, but I was surprised by the number I hadn’t heard of before. It’s certainly opened my eyes to a world of locally-produced spirits to
buy people for Christmas gifts try.
To make Christmas that bit easier, Booths offer a heritage vegetable box with all the veggies you’d need to make a stunning Christmas dinner. The range supplied by True Foods, of Yorkshire, is a perfect place to start for a Christmas buffet with delicious quiches, parfaits and tartlets.
All of this, plus the ability to order all of the Christmas range by 15th December to collect at your convenience; Booths really do offer it all. After all, t’is the season to be jolly – and the Christmas range at Booths definitely jingles my bells! What’s your favourite Christmas food/drink product?
Disclosure: I was invited to the event by Booths, however was not asked to write about it on my blog. All words and opinions are my own. Apologies for the terrible Christmas pun, also.
