What Makes a Golden Turkey the best choice at Christmas? When you order a festive bird with the Golden Turkey mark, you can be sure of an exceptional quality Christmas turkey, with rich flavour and succulence. You won’t find these Golden Turkey accreditation birds in a supermarket or large commercial stores! What is The Golden Turkey Quality Assurance Guarantee? The Traditional Farm-fresh Turkey Association (TFTA’s) ‘Golden Turkey’ Quality Assurance Guarantee is the highest UK standard for the very finest quality free-range Christmas turkeys for their eating quality, welfare standards, and environmental responsibility. Golden Turkey Farmers choose slower-growing breeds and rear them as free-range on their farms to full maturity – approximately 6 months. The turkeys are dry plucked, finished by hand, and then dry aged, (matured in chilled rooms) like a game bird, for at least seven days. In keeping with proven traditional practices ensures the finest texture and flavour for the most special meal of the year. Recognised by the EU as qualifying for the award of ‘Traditional Specialty Guarantee’.

Stroud Brewery

(All Organic, & Vegan Friendly)

 

Alederflower Organic Pale Ale (4.9% ABV)

Shortlisted for the Soil Association BOOM Awards. Refreshing aromas from Organic New Zealand Taiheke & Nelson Sauvin Hops, delicately balanced with organic, rubbed elderflowers.

 

Big Cat, Organic Stout (4.5% ABV)

Winner of a 2 star Great Taste Award, 2017. Rich and luscious, this satisfying stout has an intricacy of dark malt flavours. Aromas of burnt treacle, espresso coffee, roasted grain and spicy hops sing through. A full mouth feel is dominated by smooth chocolate coating the palate and a long, flawless finish.

 

Hop Drop (4.5% ABV)

Gold winner at Taste of the West 2018. Hop-forward, juicy pale ale with a complexity of flavours on the palate. Big citrus and tropical notes interweaves with delicious malt flavours. Three separate post-boil additions of Citra, Simcoe and El Dorado hops deliver a punchy, satisfying finish.

 

Nelson (4.2% ABV)

A crisp refreshing pale ale with organic Nelson Sauvin hops providing a fresh and delicate floral aroma.

 

Organic IPA (5.6%ABV)

A big blast of citrus fruit on the nose with lemon, grapefruit and blood orange to the fore. Our hop-driven IPA has an ever evolving recipe to showcase the very best of organic new world hops. The heady, floral aromas are backed up with honey malt flavours on the palate, balanced by bittersweet juicy fruit, with a long, creamy finish.

 

Premium Organic Lager (4.9% ABV)

Stroud Brewery's award-winning pilsner starts with a delectable lemon fruit on the nose, followed by a clean, quenching palate and subtle hop bitterness. It has a five week cold fermentation and maturation regime, brewed with Lager and Munich malts and hopped with Saaz.

 

Tom Long, Organic Bitter (3.8% ABV)

Full bodied session bitter, redolent of heady marmalade flavours with warming spice and perry hops, brewed using British hop varieties, Golds and First Gold. The palate is well balanced with rich, crystal malt delivering a deep amber colour, culminating in a dry, fruity, moreish finish.

Woodchester Valley Vineyards 

(All Vegan Friendly & Low Sulphate)

 

Bacchus 2019

A quintessential representation of the varietal style. Aromatic yet dry, with both early and late harvested fruit. This wine offers complex flavours of zesty citrus and gooseberry, subtle lychee and pineapple, with a distinctive elderflower aroma. The finish is mouthwatering and incredibly refreshing.

 

Pinot Rose 2019

Decanter Bronze medal winner 2019. An intriguingly flavorsome, yet delicate and dry rosé. The ripe raspberry and strawberry aromas and flavours are pronounced due to the cold maceration of the fruit for 4 hours before fermentation. This wine has excellent balance with a fresh lingering finish.

 

Reserve Cuvee 2017

A blend of 75% Seyval Blanc and 25% Pinot Blanc. With fresh citrus notes, aromas of red apple and subtle stone fruits, this wine has a great mid-palate structure and a balance that is nicely rounded with good effervescence. The lees ageing bring aromas of pastry and brioche, reminiscent of a delicious apple pie.

A TIME FOR GIVING

Alongside all our fantastic produce, our online shopfront also has a local donations section to offer direct support to the food hubs in & around Stroud.
