What a show this turned out to be! Having just come from the wonderfully busy BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham our stock had taken a hit as people could not get enough of our brand new batch of Gooseberry Gin Liqueur 17%...mmm!
The courier had brought in more stock (I have taken to calling the courier Gimli - the dwarf from lord of the rings - because he is ever so reliable and although he is ultimately a hero in my life, he is always slower than you want him to be) and the next thing I know I was late entering the show ground and had recruited the aid of a sweet little old lady on a mobility scooter to help carry some of the product across the show ground, an absolute angel on wheels - and as it turns out, a rather big whisky fan!
As this was Demijohn's first time at the Cheshire County Show, it was brilliant to meet so many new people and introduce them to the concept of our delightfully tasty ways; I could not even resist enticing the stand opposite (selling Ginger Beer), to try drinking it with our Organic Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur 20.5%, what a success amongst exhibitors and customers alike.
When I thought this show could not get any more fun, I was approached and presented with a second place rosette for best looking ... Stall! Having had a little round of applause and a celebration dance with anyone willing to join in (3 people and an excitable dog) I went on to have a brilliant show.
I look forward to seeing some of you lovely people again at the RHS Flower Show in Tatton park (25-28 July) - don't forget those refills!
