Our Milnthorpe store has resulted in the creation of over 60 jobs and offers a complete shopping experience for customers who can purchase all their groceries, fresh produce and beer, wines and spirits in one place. The exterior design of this store is unique to Milnthorpe, exhibiting an extraordinary piece of artwork produced by local sculptor, Katie Edwards.
It contains fresh food counters, including a butchers, fishmongers, delicatessen, hot food and cheesemongers. Booths is renowned for its artisan quality and sourcing fresh, seasonal produce and its fresh food counters will be pride of place in store. Many shoppers choose Booths for its unrivalled selection of local produce and Booths Milnthorpe is no different. The new store is perfectly placed to take advantage of suppliers from all of Booths regions (Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire), including products such as Holker salt marsh lamb raised on the Cartmel peninsula and Morecambe Bay potted shrimps.
On taste throughout our stores this weekend (21st & 22nd November) we have:
From our Hot Counters we have hot Cumbrian Chicken which is sourced locally from one of our long standing suppliers & our Booths Pork Sausage one of our original favourites from our Booths Sausage Celebration.
As the nights are drawing in why not choose between a Chicken, Ham & Leek Pie or our own Roast Squash & Mrs Bells Blue Quiche; a shortcrust pastry case with TRUEfoods creamy custard which envelopes sweet & chunky oven roasted sweet butternut squash with sage & olive oil, sautéed white onions, dotted with Shepherds Purse Mrs Bells blue cheese which are both available from our Deli Counter.
From the Cheese Counter why not try Mrs Kirkhams Smoked Lancashire; the only unpasteurised Lancashire Cheese traditionally Oak Smoked by Chris Sandham.
In Grocery why not try our Heavenly Bakes Very Berry Flapjack or OMG Slice?
Within Licensed enjoy Rekorderlig Winter Cider either cold over ice or hot with a slice of orange for a perfect winter warmer. Or even serve as a hot toddy by mixing with a combination of rum, honey, lemon and Rekorderlig hot Winter Cider served with a cinnamon stick & an orange wheel.
We also have Chateau Dereszla Dry Tokaji; Tokaj (formerly Tokaj-Hegyalja) has long been Hungary’s most famous and respected wine region, thanks mostly to its nectar-like, botrytized Tokaji dessert wines. The region and its wine are held in such esteem in Hungary that the Hungarian national anthem thanks God that Tokaj szőlővesszein nektárt csepegtettél (“into the vineyards of Tokaj you dripped sweet nectar”). Alternatively why not try Chateau Cesseras Minervois Cuvée Olric; One of the world’s most diverse and successful grape varieties, Syrah wines can display myriad dark-fruit flavors. Varietal Syrah can be quite floral in its youth, developing more peppery and herbaceous notes as it ages. Some examples show tanned leather and smoky scents, while the fruit in these wines tends towards the very dark flavours of blackcurrant and liquorice.
With all of these delights on offer why not pop in this Saturday or Sunday and give them a try.
