Peter Christian wins the “Oscar” of catalogues – ECMOD best brand award

Every high street used to boast a traditional gentleman’s outfitters, they were bastions of masculinity smelling of tweed, leather and furniture polish. You were guaranteed excellent service and good advice based on years of experience, shopping for clothing was a pleasure. The Estate’s resident sartorial guru, Nick Alderton mourned the loss of these high street outfitters and established Peter Christian to continue this tradition online. The hard work of his talented team has borne fruit as they have recently been victorious in a very prestigious award ceremony.

“The award means a lot to us, it proves that men do appreciate an outfitters with individuality and character. We have been careful to recruit only people with a love for traditional menswear and natural aptitude for customer service and it is great that the talent and hard work of my excellent team has been recognised.”

Peter Christian have claimed this year’s Best Menswear Brand at the  ECMOD awards; the online and catalogue “Oscars”  held this year’s at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in West London. Sky news anchor Dermot Murnaghan handed the award to the team who fought off stiff competition from huge brands such as John Lewis, Boden and Charles Tyrwhitt.

Its always fantastic when the diligence of small, highly skilled, family business is recognised and we are so proud that Peter Christian have had their hard work and passion brought to the attention of a much wider audience through these awards.

I couldn’t resist sharing this picture of the pansies by our main gates. Its a couple of weeks old now and Norman is working hard to create the next delightful display as the temperatures creep up and we move further in to Summer…..I’ve been using it as a screen saver as I find it impossible not to be uplifted when I see it. Enjoy!

Raw Chocolate Company

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

We are very much looking forward to welcoming our new tenants in Unit 3 – The Raw Chocolate Company.

Founded in 2006 after chocolatier Linus perfected his raw chocolate skills and came up with a product that had to be shared, the Raw Chocolate Company have devoted themselves to making an ethical, delicious and healthy product.

Cold pressed (using less energy), fairly traded, using pure and healthy ingredients and most importantly of all, completely delicious, the Raw Chocolate Company makes chocolate bars, snacks and also sells a range of “Supreme foods” that are great in smoothies or for producing your own raw, healthy treats.

Their Vanoffe bar would be my personal desert island food (the snap alone makes my mouth water) but don’t take my word for it – their Goji and Orange Raw Chocolate bar won two gold stars in the 2013 Great Taste Awards…..
