With our independent spirit and artisan heritage you won’t be surprised that we are not ones for labels here at Lyme Bay Winery. We don’t care much for putting people, or things, in boxes – unless of course it’s a customer order that we are getting ready to send out.

However, having said that, we have just developed new labels for our award-winning range of luxurious fruit liqueurs along with local design agency Bluesoup Design.

The ideal addition to a pre-prandial cocktail or delicious as an after-dinner digestif, our eight fruit liqueurs also make the perfect accompaniment to a cheeseboard, and to celebrate their new look we have worked with local artisan cheese producer Quicke's Cheese to hand-select some of the South West’s finest cheeses for after-dinner pairing and sharing suggestions.

Made by blending our renowned Country Wines with a complementary spirit to 17% volume, each of our liqueurs now has its own wedge to work with. Whether it’s Apricot Brandy sipped with Quicke’s Goat’s Milk Clothbound Cheese, a slice of mould-ripened Dorset White washed down with our indulgent and smooth Sloe Liqueur, or a sliver of Cornish Blue served with the brooding and intense Elderberry & Port Liqueur, we think these pairings have a match for any mood, occasion or palate – so see which tickle your taste buds.
