At the beginning of 2019 we welcomed a new business to Old Bolsover Yard - Cup & Saucer is a small independent business owned & run by Gail Hannan which is based in the heart of Derbyshire; just a stones throw away from the beautiful Peak District which influences many of their products.
On their website - www.cupandsauceronline.co.uk – Gail tells us that - "Cup & Saucer are passionate about good-quality tea, and providing our customers with a variety of unique flavours".
In joining the Old Bolsover Yard community, Gail is a good example of what we were hoping to achieve as part of the Yard – providing small business premises for craft businesses who are looking to expand to the next stage in their development.
In 2018 Gail & Cup & Saucer were the winners of the Chesterfield Food & Drink Awards - Food Producer Year 2018.
Commenting on her success, Gail said - “It feels great to win the Food Producer of the Year award, but totally unexpected. It was a surprise to get through to the tasting session but, to win it, is just amazing. When I realised that people enjoy our teas, that really motivated me to just keep working hard to provide great products.”
So, next time you are in Castle Street, why not pop in & see if Gail is open & find out what your favourite ‘tea tipple’ is.
