Local drinks

No matter whether you prefer a warm cuppa or a pint of real ale, our coastline offers something for everyone…

Sandringham Apple Juice – with eight varieties to choose from, this 100% natural drink is a regal as it gets!  Easy to spot in their green bottles too.

King Harry Liqueur – crafted by Sally at Norfolk Saffron, this unique tipple is made using saffron grown within sight and sound of the sea.  With tastes of honey and orange too, it asks for a roaring fire, however we’re sure there must be a summer cocktail just waiting to be made.

Grey Seal Coffee – small batch, artisan coffee roasters based at Glandford near Blakeney, you can buy their delicious coffees from local farm shops and delis, or head to one of their coffee houses at Blakeney, Wells-next-the-Sea and Sheringham.  We assure you that a cup of their coffee is the best way to wake up in the morning.

Local ales – it’s not surprising to find out that North Norfolk has more micro-breweries than anywhere else in the UK, when you know the land here grows the highest quality Maris Otter barley.  The best place to choose your favourite pint is The Real Ale Shop at Branthill Farm on the Holkham estate near Wells-next-the-Sea.  Run by farmer Teddy Maufe, our top tip is the relatively new craft ales from Malt Coast Brewery – best served chilled.

Norfolk Cordial – made in North Norfolk, this wonderful company makes a range of eight cold-pressed, natural cordials, that are enjoyed by locals, celebrities and royalty the world over.  Our favourite is the new Red Gooseberry and Elderflower.  Satisfyingly refreshing!

Wild Knight Vodka – the creation of husband and wife team, Matt and Steph Brown, and inspired by travels to Mongolia, this vodka is expertly distilled from local barley.  You know it’s good stuff when championed by local chefs, restaurateurs and international experts and publications.

Gin – yes, it might be the drink of the moment, but good things like this are usually here to stay.  With the case of Black Shuck Gin, Norfolk Gin and Bullards – three local artisan gin companies – which tipple will you go for?
