Off-licence celebrates with special ale
A DECADE of devotion to fine wine, beer and food is being celebrated by Louise and Doug Smith, owners of The Jug & Bottle, Bubwith’s specialist off-licence and delicatessen.
And the anniversary, next Tuesday, will be a double celebration for the couple as it sees their son Charlie’s third birthday.
To mark ten years of being at the top of their game, and to wet Charlie’s head – if a little late – a specially brewed draught beer – Tenth Anniversary Ale – will be launched at the sixth Bubwith Beer and Cider festival on Saturday.
Brewed by Brown Cow at Barlow, only 250 bottles of the beer will be produced and numbered by hand.
This limited edition beer will only be on sale for a month and will make the perfect gift for anyone with their own special occasion!
During the whole of October, customers spending £20 or over will be entered into a free prize draw to win £100 to spend in the shop, and on Tuesday every tenth customer will receive a £10 voucher for The Jug & Bottle.
Over the last decade, it is not just beer, wine and cider that The Jug & Bottle has provided for the people of Bubwith.
Louise has helped raised almost £20,000 from organising the beer and cider festival as well as giving away over £4,000 in prizes to support local charities and organisations in the village. She also helps run activities for the local tennis club, church and the village’s pre-school.
The shop has won numerous awards since 2002, and also became the quickest outlet to win York CAMRA’s Outlet of the Season award within just seven months of opening.
Other gongs grabbed by the Jug & Bottle include National Community Off Licence of the Year in 2009 and the offie became the first shop ever to retain the Independent Cider Retailer of the Year prize.
Louise said; “It has obviously been tough in the current economic climate to keep going, but we are committed to offering the best possible range of products for our customers as well as a high quality buying experience.
“We have always strived to be different from other outlets by stocking beers, wines and ciders that can not be found in mainstream stores.
“We have been rewarded with a loyal band of customers and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the last ten years. Cheers!”
