Womersley is a small, design-led, family run artisan food business, concentrating on high quality condiments. The story began in Womersley, Yorkshire, where the rather flamboyant Martin Parsons planted his large kitchen garden with an array of fragrant herbs and delicious fruit. . . In 1979, Martin and his wife, Aline, started a local craft shop which also included their homemade jams, chutneys, fruit vinegars and jellies in the village shop. Martin's flair for concocting cocktails in his rakish youth was put to further good use with the elaborate vinegars he devised. Their sons, Rupert and Richard, were quickly enrolled into the business, during school holidays, when they picked endless raspberries - rain or shine! Rupert took over in 2010 and concentrated on the fruit vinegars for the first few years, but there is more to come. . .
