At a time when supporting local businesses has become even more important, a new online store specialising in supporting local West Country businesses has just launched. Elston & Son elstonandson.co.uk specialise in West Country Artisan Food and Drink, supporting and celebrating great local Artisan producers.
They’re a small family-run online shop who want to share their love and passion for the hundreds of small, local and independent Artisan food and drink producers across the West Country. They offer a carefully curated collection of all the best producers, where you can buy cheese to compliment your Cider or Beer together with West Country Spirits or Mixers and have them delivered together to you wherever you are in the country.
The online store aims to link the past, present and future by celebrating traditional methods still being used today by championing the best West Country producers and the brands of the future. They have chosen producers and products that are all genuinely made in the West Country, showcasing the region’s Artisan Food and Drink at its best. They have deliberately started small with their favourite West Country products and will be adding more products and producers as they move forwards.
Dave, who started the venture, is an entrepreneur with a background in retail and eCommerce. The family have lived in the West Country for the past 12 years, having moved to Somerset to work at Clarks where Dave ran the eCommerce and Digital business for Clarks shoes, who are headquartered in Street. They ended up falling in love with the area and its amazing range of food and drink as well as beautiful countryside, beaches and lovely people.
They currently have a great range of beers, ciders, spirits and delicious artisan cheeses. They are also very pleased to be selling Shrub, a traditional West Country cordial used as the perfect mixer for Rum , which is a drink Dave is very passionate about bringing to as many people as possible.
For Christmas they have launched a fabulous range of Hampers: elstonandson.co.uk/hampers, available to pre order as festive gifts for loved ones, or to indulge yourself with gorgeous West Country Artisan Food and Drink.
