Axe Valley drinks firm takes gold and silver at the Taste of the West Awards
Lyme Bay Winery is celebrating after collecting five prizes at this year’s Taste of the West Awards.
Up against some of the most respected wine, spirit and liqueur producers in the south west, the Shute-based drinks producer came away with one gold, one silver and three highly commended awards for a host of its unique traditional recipes.
Top honours went to its rich and creamy salted caramel liqueur, which scooped gold as it impressed the judges with its “lovely colour” and “butterscotch aroma”.
Lyme Bay’s smooth and richly scented fruit liqueurs were also a hit, as damson, elderflower and lemon and cherry brandy all won praise for their tantalising, full-bodied flavours.

Finally, the winery’s well-balanced traditional mead was also highly commended by judges for its deliciously honeyed flavour and deep golden colour.
James Lambert, managing director at Lyme Bay Winery, said: “Creating delicious drinks using locally sourced produce and traditional methods is at the heart of everything we do at Lyme Bay, so it’s very rewarding for our team’s efforts to be recognised by such a prestigious scheme in the region.
