Next week the Buttermilk bus will be hitting the road and heading up to Badminton Horse trials for the first time. We are going to be appearing in the Rural Crafts avenue alongside some other fantastic producers from Wednesday 4th May until Sunday 8th May 2016.
Pop to see us to try some crumbly or smooth fudge, crunchy brittle or chocolate coated honeycomb.
Badminton Horse Trials started in 1949, many years before Buttermilk existed, and has been held in the grounds of Badminton Park ever since.
Buttermilk worked closely with Tarquin Leadbetter, founder of Southwestern Distillery to create limited edition Tarquin’s Gin and Pastis fudge products for Craft Gin Club members. The limited edition treats packs of gin, pastis and vanilla fudge are now available to purchase via the Buttermilk website.
Managing director, Tracy McGoad said: “We have long been big fans and customers of Tarquin’s, and are really impressed by his artisanal skills and passion. Like us, he uses traditional techniques and quality ingredients to create products in small batches.
“It has been great to collaborate with another Cornish producer to create something fun and a little different.”
The fudges have distinct flavours with juniper and orangey coriander notes from the gin fudge, and a sweet aniseed flavour from the pastis.
Tarquin Leadbetter said: “I’ve been buying Buttermilk fudge since I was a child, popping into the Padstow shop during school holidays, so it was a fantastic idea to collaborate with these brilliant confectioners that are only a few miles down the road from the distillery, and produce something really special.
“Tracy and David were really enthusiastic to be involved and we couldn’t be happier with all their hard work. The results are excellent. The proof is in the pudding!”
