Carbon Law Partners are thrilled for Leanne Johns, creator and director of Sloane Home who has just been awarded a Great Taste Award for her boutique artisan liquor, Lone Stag Zesty.

This handmade clementine, lemon & lime vodka based spirit was recognised for being “sparkly & lively, an intoxicating mix of aromas – accompanied by a cheeky cocktail recipe card, which adds a bit of humour to the brand.”

Leanne, who we recently featured on Carbon Curated is delighted to have been recognised by Great Taste.  “I am thrilled beyond words that Lone Stag Zesty has won such a well-regarded award. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating the Lone Stag Family of boutique artisan liquors.  This has been a passion that I have been able to develop around my family life and friends, all who have given me tremendous support and encouragement – especially in their role as expert testers for our new spirits and cocktails! I am sure that this prestigious award will open up further opportunities for the Lone Stag Brand to be more widely available from discerning retailers and licenced establishments who love quality, niche brands”.

Lone Stag Zesty is one of a selection of quality Sloane products from a brand, who as well as producing other delicious Lone Stag artisan liquors, creates beautifully fragranced hand-poured candles and hampers which incorporate a combination of the very best Sloane creations.

The Great Taste Award is recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike. The panel of judges included the esteemed palates of: TV chef and author, Valentine Warner, MasterChef judge and restaurant critic, Charles Campion, fifth generation baker, Tom Herbert from Hobbs House Bakery, and Great British Bake Off winner, Frances Quinn; food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols and Waitrose and chefs including, James Golding, chef director of THE PIG Hotels, and Kevin Gratton, chef director of HIX Restaurants.
