Lyme Bay Winery Partners with Hawkchurch Resort & Spa


Darwin Escapes are delighted to announce that we now offer Lyme Bay Winery Products at our 5 Star Hawkchurch Resort & Spa in Axminster, Devon!

Your next visit to Hawkchurch Resort & Spa is sure to be even more enjoyable thanks to a new partnership we have formed with their nearby Lyme Bay Winery in Axminster.

We now stock many of their class leading wines, meads, ciders and liqueurs at our 5* resort in the Axe Valley. Lyme Bay Winery are famous in the industry and have won numerous awards in different categories thanks to the efforts of their small but dedicated team who have been setting new standards with their bold and innovative approach for the past 25 years.

To give you an indicator of how good they are, they added a further 35 awards to their rather extensive trophy cabinet in 2016 alone! This included awards from prestigious competitions such as the International Wine and Spirit Competition and the International Cider Challenge. They are real masters in various category of beverage and you can sample many of their best products the next time you visit Hawkchurch Resort & Spa.


Lyme Bay Winery Traditional Mead


The brand is perhaps most synonymous for its traditional meads including the Traditional Mead Flagon which is a Lyme Bay Winery best seller. It is a delightfully sweet and full bodied concoction which has won a Great Taste Award. It is perfect for entering the winter months, as it is sure to warm the cockles and a must try for any of you honey fans out there.

We also highly recommend the Lyme Bay Winery Ginger Liqueur which won a 1 star gold award from the Great Taste Awards in 2013. It offers a delightfully spicy after taste and subtle kick from the whisky mixture. It would work really well in a Hot Toddy, so we recommend that you stock up ahead of the Christmas season. We stock the beautifully presented, rounded 300ml bottle of their Ginger Liqueur in the Hawkchurch farm shop.


A Personal Favourite


From personal experience, I would recommend that any brandy lovers like myself try out their fantastic Cherry Brandy which is also available in the Hawkchurch store. It is an absolute treat for the taste buds, with the sweet taste you would expect with a cherry brandy but also with hints of sour cherries to help ensure a long lasting taste.

The 200ml square bottle is stocked here which is beautifully presented, as is the case with the vast majority of Lyme Bay Winery Liqueurs. This means that it can be re-used for household presentation purposes and guaranteed that my finance didn’t offer too many objections when I last stocked up on the product.

Just when you thought holiday breaks in Axminster at Hawkchurch couldn’t get any better…
