At the end of March and in the midst of shutdown we were delighted to see our vacant showroom in Kiltonga have a spark of life back in it. Our Friends from Hellbent tackled the opportunity to use our showroom kitchen to film and photograph some of their wonderful new products.
Their South African styled Boerewors are now stocked in Spar and EuroSpar stores accross Northern Ireland. Aldi lead the way in Repuplic of Ireland with their South African flavours now permanently in stock and also Aldi in Scotland are joining the game too. It kind of feels like Louis and Schalk are building their own 6 Nations!!

Those clever Danes at Hwam have done it again with their beautifully designed and co-ordinated outdoor stoves, fire pits, modular log stores and planters which have all been constructed from premium corten steel sheet. That's the trendy metal that looks like it's already weathered bright orange with rust, but in actual fact isn't.
