Lyme Bay Winery takes five awards for its country wines and fruit liqueurs

Corks have been popping after an Axe Valley drinks company won further national acclaim.

Lyme Bay Winery picked up five medals for its country wines and fruit liqueurs at the Quality Drink Awards - considered the most prestigious accolades for wine, spirits and beer products on sale in UK grocery outlets.

Receiving a Gold for its warming Ginger Wine and a Bronze for its medium sweet Peach Wine in the Fruit Wine Category, as well as three bronze for its Ginger Liqueur, Elderberry and Port and Cherry Brandy, the Shute-based producer was praised for its great tasting products.

The judging panel comprised of chefs, food writers, food technologists and restaurateurs on the hunt for the finest flavours, textures and aromas.
