Award winning Distillers sauce range

Gary Stewart’s talent lies in taking simple ingredients and turning them into extraordinary dishes. His presentation is stunning, and his food tastes incredible, leaving a lasting impression. By sourcing everything from local farmers and producers, Gary has become an award-winning producer in his own right with his range of Distillers sauces. He launched his Distiller’s Pickle sauce, perfecting the flavour during the lockdown. Made with Armagh apples, spices and a generous measure of Black Bush Irish Whiskey, this condiment is perfect for cheeses, charcuterie, burgers and sandwiches. It won gold in the Irish Food Awards / Blas na hEireann 2021 and 1 gold star winner at the Guild of Fine Food’ Great Taste Awards’ 2022, an incredible achievement considering the challenges facing the hospitality industry during that period and he has just welcomed the news that his Distiller’s Pickle Sauce was awarded Silver at the Great British Food Awards, announced November 2023.

He now has added a  delicious Distillers Raspberry and Apple Sauce, perfect for scones, granola, Eton mess, desserts such as the stunning lemon posset featured on Tartine at Distillers Arm’s menu or a moreish twist when added to a refreshing summer cocktail which also managed to win bronze at the Great British Food Awards 2023.. And if two delicious award winning products weren’t enough he has launched a Cranberry chutney and is busy working on an exciting range of new products to add to the collection.
