Topic: #LOCALLOVE

Flavors: Local Yorkshire whisky ganache, with orange gel and caramelized pecan crisp.

The inspiration comes from my Yorkshire born father, who’s favorite drink was whisky and orange, and would enjoy roasted pecans with his drink. In 2019 I discovered the farm in Filey Bay Yorkshire which is completely self-sufficient, they grow their own barley, bore their own water from the ground and generate their own electricity to power the farm where they distill the whisky. They are only one of two completely self-sufficient farms in the whole of the UK. I couldn't believe this company was literally on my doorstep and I had to use in the WCM.
