Aeithalis

Aeithalis (Ayy-tha-lis) means ‘evergreen’ in Greek, and comprises Ilias Panagiotakopoulos, a Greek farmer who inherited a neglected olive grove near Kyparissia in Southern Greece, and William Uden.
“It wasn’t long”, says Will “before we had won a Great Taste Award for our first harvest. Aeithalis operates as transparently as possible. Last year we gained PDO status, this year we have applied for organic certification and we regularly dispel myths on olive oil production through social media. Many expensive oils still use vast amounts of weedkillers which completely wreck the ecology of the groves for example.” says Will. “We pay our workers a living wage and excess profits go back into maintaining the grove without the use of chemicals.”

A Muswell Hill-based speciality coffee roasters, Fireheart has two coffee obsessives at its heart, Thomas and Paul, who built a coffee roastery during lockdown from which they produce small-batch coffee that’s always seasonal and hand-roasted to order.

Minor Figures

Based in E17, Minor Figures is an unlikely mob of painters, jazz musicians, basketball players and barbers, who make plant-based, 100% vegan teas, coffees and oat milks particularly developed to accompany their coffee. So, it doesn’t split in the lightest roasts and textures to the perfect foam, keeping the focus on the coffee. They are also a certified Carbon Neutral brand with some of the best branding we’ve ever seen. Sadly lost on refills!

Gin 58

An eco-conscious distillery based ‘under the arches’ in Haggerston.

We bring our Italian heritage and skills to create artisan pasta of the highest quality, slow dried at a low temperature allowing the nutritional value and natural taste of the grains to remain intact.”
Artisan made in East London, Pastifichio Carleschi use ancient wheat varieties like spelt, emmer and einkorn, making their pasta a particularly popular vegan choice through its superior nutritional values and high protein and fibre content – up to twice that of industrially produced white pasta.

Cycle of Good

Our delivery bike, Eric, is an Elephant bike – a decommissioned Royal Mail delivery bike that has been literally ‘upcycled’ by Cycle of Good. This amazing company donate up to three bikes to Malawi for every one that they sell in the UK – a country where a bike can increase a household income by 35% and make education accessible to children in far flung villages. Not only that, but they have set up a workshop to restore the bikes, which trains young offenders the skills of bike maintenance and a potential trade. Meanwhile, in Malawi, they have set up a parallel workshop for the restoration of the bikes that they ship over, which again teaches local people a skill and a trade. Incredible work!

On the Farm at Dove's

Doves’ Farm

Dove’s Farm was founded in 1977 by Clare and Michael Marriage, with the simple idea of making quality flour from their organically farmed grains. This means that it has been produced with higher levels of environmental and animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides and no genetically modified ingredients or artificial fertilisers. Still family owned and based in the North Wessex Downs, their multiple award-winning range continues to develop, milling heritage flours too, including rye, spelt, einkorn and emmer.

Duchess Rapeseed Oil

Duchess Farm has been family run in Hertfordshire for six generations. The name comes from current custodian Oscar Harding’s great grandmother, who was known as “Duchess”. Their oil is grown, harvested, bottled and pressed on the farm. There is no mass production. Protecting their soil and the farm’s environment is central to their ethos and they have worked with Friends of the Earth to stop the use of harmful insecticides and dedicated 150 acres of their farm to conservation. Even the pressed seeds don’t go to waste – they are fed to the cows. We receive your oil in 20 litre vats via eco-electric-delivery-supplier Planet Minimal, who collect, clean and reuse them when empty.

Shipton Mill

Set in a beautiful Cotswold valley near Tetbury, the mill in Shipton Moyne Wood has been producing flour since the time of the Domesday Book. Today it produces a wide variety of speciality flours, using both traditional grain and traditional methods. They mill a range of organic flour of exceptional quality, without haste and with scrupulous care, using only the best ingredients; and all ground with traditional French Burr millstones, retaining all that organic goodness – just as they would have been in medieval times.

A restoration project since 1981, the mill, its river and millpond have also become home to a thriving and diverse ecosystem, including wild brown trout, kingfishers, damselflies and otters. And now that the millwheel is restored and the sluice gates can close to create the beautiful millpond, they are working on generating our own electricity from the millwheel.

Jiddler’s Tipple

Jiddler’s Tipple is a multi-award-winning, carbon positive, Turnpike Lane-based brewery. The man behind the curtain there is Jacob Liddle …

“After falling in love with homebrewing in 2017”, says Jacob, “I launched Jiddler’s Tipple in October 2019, with the aim of creating perfectly balanced, delicious, session strength craft beer.” 

It’s not just the flavour that differentiates his brews, their striking design is inspired by vintage shirt patterns, “so they look as good as they taste!”

Why vintage shirts, Jacob? “When creating the labels, I was wondering what to use for the design. Then it clicked – I have a wardrobe full of awesome designs! In this way, Jiddler’s Tipple is a marriage of two of my greatest passions in life – beer and vintage shirts!”

He’s also committed to an environmentally friendly business. “This is why I decided to package all our beers in cans (rather than bottles) and with paper labels (not plastic) and use materials that are as environmentally friendly as possible wherever I can. I wanted to build in carbon offsetting from the start, so it’s part of Jiddler’s Tipple’s DNA.”

That includes offsetting a whopping 25% more carbon than Jiddler’s Tipple produces, “so that we can not only “wipe our face”, but also give something back”. 

They also work with TIST – The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program – whose carbon credits have been validated and audited so that the carbon has already been captured and removed from the atmosphere.

“Unlike other projects, where offsetting is pledged or promised and you risk it being unfulfilled, ” explains Jacob, “and the TIST farmers receive 70% of the net profits from the sale of the credits. This ensures the money from carbon offsetting goes back to the farmers local economy, significantly helping their standard of living.”

So very many reasons to enjoy your Jiddler’s Tipple!
