Burren Balsamics, the award-winning producer of infused balsamic vinegars, has won its fourth order from Harrods, the iconic department store in London, in less than six months.
The company, which is based at Richhill in County Armagh, has received significant new business for its range of balsamic vinegars infused with local fruits, including Armagh Bramley apples. The balsamics are on display in the Knightsbridge store’s vast food halls, which draw customers from Great Britain and many other parts of the world.
“We were absolutely thrilled to receive our fourth order just a few months after we won our first business to supply an initial nine lines to the luxury store,” says Susie Hamilton Stubber, who founded the business in February 2014.
“Harrods is proving to be an immensely important customer for us in London, a market we’ve been targeting for some considerable time.
“Harrods has given us an important springboard in Great Britain.”
Burren Balsamics has won a host of accolades for its vinegars, including UK Great Taste and Blas na hEireann food awards.
In addition, Burren’s Irish Peat Smoked was recently awarded Best New Product at the Great British Food Awards.
Mrs Hamilton Stubber creates the novel products with business partner Bob McDonald, an experienced development chef.
The vinegars are blended from natural ingredients, including quality fruits from local farmers such as blackcurrants, strawberries and blueberries.
The company also produces chutneys and jams.
Other customers for the vinegars include Aldi Ireland.
