Boutinot Wine

Founded in 1980 when the Boutinots opened a restaurant near Stockport. They had trouble sourcing quality wines from their native France meaning their son Paul would have to go and collect the wine from the continent. Over the past 20 years Paul Boutinot has grown the company from these humble beginnings, not only supplying French wine to restaurants across the north west, but is now an international producer and distributor with vineyards in France and South Africa, and has distribution companies in the UK and the USA.


A family owned company who can trace its history back to the 1850s when it was a grocer's shop in central Manchester. Over the years it changed from retail to concentrate on wholesale food supply. Since the 1930s the company has been owned by the same family and remains proudly independent to this day.

Cheshire Saffron

A family run business (Dr Peter Gould and Douglas Gould) nestled in the hills of the mid Cheshire sandstone ridge, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Having sourced the perfect location for their prized spice and the finest crocus corm they have spent several years using meticulous levels of detail and experimentation to ensure their Saffron is perfect in every way. They painstakingly harvest and process the saffron by hand extracting the vivid red stigmas and then removing the yellow styles giving three strands per flower.
