Christmas All Wrapped Up

Christmas All Wrapped Up

One of the awesome things about developing ecommerce websites is that we get to be involved with companies offering ground-breaking products and owned by people who are truly passionate about what they do. We have selected 10 of our clients’ offerings that we believe will help you make the most of this crazy time of year, get organised and calm those festive stress levels.

We have ideas for everything from your festive night out to stocking fillers and gifts, and we’ve even thought about the dreaded festive food shop!


Tempest Brewing Co.

Tempest Brewing Co can help you get the festive party started with a decadent evening at Abbotsford House on the 4th of December. You will be guided through samples of Tempest’s limited edition beers, complemented with gourmet canapés from The Orde Food Company in the stunningly beautiful surroundings of Ochiltree’s Dining at Abbotsford House in Melrose. This evening really is NOT to be missed so start your festive season with a little treat but please do book your tickets ASAP. This event has gathered a lot of interest, not only from those with an appreciation for fine craft beer, but also from those who are looking for a Christmas night out with a difference.

Tempest at Abbotsford

Can’t make it on the 4th? Fear not, you can buy your favourite Tempest beers straight from the source. Whether you are having a few friends round at Christmas or a New Year party to remember, get your beer delivered direct to your door with simple, secure online ordering from Tempest Brewing Co. Last chance to order for Christmas delivery is midnight on the 21st of December!
To tempt you even further, Tempest have been busy brewing some brand spanking new beers and have very kindly given us a sneak peek;

  • Saison du Pomme – An apple harvest ale brewed with Scottish apple juice.
  • Old Parochial – A returning favourite, this is a scotch ale barrel aged in ex-bourbon Craigellachie barrels
  • Marmalade on Rye – Yet another old favourite, this is a seriously jammy double IPA brewed with fresh oranges
  • Saison Cider – A collaboration with Thistly Cross Cider, brewed a saison and added Thistly’ s lovely cider and fresh blackcurrants; very tasty!
  • A Face With No Name – An ambiguous amber ale somewhere between that and a red IPA

We are also chuffed to bits to let you know you will soon be able to get your craft beer-loving paws on some pretty awesome Tempest goodies including clothing and glassware. This is a website you really want to be keeping an eye on over the next week or so!
