Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, crisp blue skies, hands so cold you wonder if you can even button up your jacket to shield yourself from the icy grasp of the cutting wind. Ah winter, we meet again. As Jack Frost descends across the county we want to keep our dear readers inspired and what better way to do so than with our winter themed custom awards that are sure to brighten up these long, cold nights.
Conjuring up garbled phrases such as “reet” and “that’ll do nicely” we celebrate one of Yorkshire’s finest exports - after their cracking tea - with the Flat Cap Award. Truly a staple of any self respecting Northerner or wheeler dealer, the flat cap is nod to winter headwear. Framed in an elegant box, this fashionable award is sure to keep you warm as you brave the cold streets of Humberside. Sadly, we were not able to give out whippets to accompany this one.
Cast Resin Chili Award
Nothing beats some warming food on a cold day. Indeed, our chili award, elegantly cast from resin, is a winter warmer par excellence. Simple, effective and fun the award may be minimal but certainly packs a punch.
Copper Stag Award
If you’re not in the mood for some spicy food then can we, perhaps, tempt you with a wee dram of the good stuff? The clinking of glasses, the pungent aromas of esters, phenols and woods as you inhale from the glass whetting your tastebuds and livening up your nostrils. The Copper Stag is a celebration of one of the finest Scotch whisky manufacturers and is just the thing to turn those chilly frowns upside down. The base is made from hand worked oak barrels which have been used in the manufacture of sherry, giving the award a strong, sweet smell of alcohol and, further in homage to the distilling process, the head of the award is made from copper used in to distill the centuries old drink.
