Sponsors & Partners

The Lymington Seafood Festival would not be possible without a little help from our friends and sponsors…and we would like to thank them all for their support for 2019

We take two things seriously at Ringwood Brewery- our ale and our leisure time. Along with creating quality craft ales, we are relaxation enthusiasts. Our motto is “Visit the Winding Downs”- a place to enjoy some quality time with friends.

Ringwood will be producing a limited edition festival ale that will be available at the event, keep an eye on our social media and news page for the ale naming competition!

Exton Park Vineyard is an award-winning English Sparkling Wine producer located in Hampshire’s South Downs National Park, just outside Winchester. Our 55 acre single-vineyard is planted on pure chalk soils, producing vibrant and mineral wines with a distinctive style and complexity. Our wines have been awarded multiple Gold Medals and are listed in some of the top restaurants around the UK.

As a single-estate producer, we control the entire winemaking process; from growing all of our own fruit through to vinifying and bottling the wine. The wines are vinified plot by plot, with a certain amount being held back in reserve each year, to guarantee the consistency of the award-winning Non-Vintage cuvees. From time to time, Exton Park will also release ‘Special Cuvees’, such as the unique Pinot Meunier Rosé. Exton Park: English excellence from the heart of Hampshire’s chalk downs.

We are Dorset’s first gin distillery, opening our distillery doors in Bournemouth back in April 2015. We believe in genuine craft, quality-focused, innovative spirits. Today you’ll find a team of 8 Conkerers handcrafting our award-winning spirits in tiny batches, without the shortcuts.

We are the real deal – the distillers, bottlers and botanical foragers – handpicking gorse flowers from the clifftops of Bournemouth for our bright & refreshing Dorset Dry Gin. Conker Cold Brew Coffee liqueur is a dedication to the coffee lover – no imitation, simply Grade 1 forest-grown Speciality coffees from Brazil and Ethiopia. Our RNLI Navy Strength Gin is distilled in honour of the RNLI.

We raise a glass to the courageous men and women who have worked selflessly over two centuries to end preventable loss of life at sea. For every bottle you enjoy, gift or squirrel away, we give £5 to the RNLI.

Lymington Harbour and its strong maritime heritage has been at the heart of the Town and its community for hundreds of years. These days, the harbour is one of the most popular leisure boating destinations in the UK, playing a key part in bringing marine tourism to Lymington as well as providing around 650 moorings for local people.

Visiting yachts have plenty of choice between harbour moorings at the Town Quay near the high street, the Dan Bran Pontoon close to the Royal Lymington and Lymington Town yachts clubs, or the privately owned Berthon and Yacht Haven marinas with their excellent facilities.

The harbour also supports many other marine businesses generating local employment. These include the Wightlink ferry service to the Isle of Wight, dry boat storage, many marine services and boat yards, boat sales, chandleries, river trips, and a small but important fishing fleet that lands its catch at Lymington quay!

You’ll be able to find out more by visiting the Lymington Harbour Commissioners stand at the Seafood Festival.
