It’s Bellota time: a very special event with Lishman’s this week

Join us at Wednesday’s late night shopping event for the carving of our pure-bred Bellota ham, wine tasting, sherry sampling and much more…

Wednesday 6th December – a true spectacle

We’ve been looking forward to carving into our pure-bred Bellota from Arturo Sánchez for weeks. Join us in the shop on Wednesday evening to see David carve our Bellota for yourself!

David was lucky enough to recently spend time honing his ham carving skills with José Ángel, a world champion Cortador. Although Jose didn’t speak a word of English, he and David communicated through a blend of charades/ ham acting (!) and their mutual enthusiasm for exceptional jamón!

We will be slicing this black label Bellota into packs for you to grab and go. Priority will be given to Ilkley late night shopping customers on Wednesday, but if you want to reserve your own pack via email then drop us a message to get priority access to our ‘sliced bellota waiting list’.


Wine & Sherry Tasting

Wednesday evening’s late night shopping event also brings with it the chance to enjoy a few of the excellent wines we stock from the knowledgeable, happy souls at Pride & Provenance.

They’ll be on hand to offer advice, tastings and pairings for whatever you’ve got planned for the festive season. There’s no pressure and no hard sell: just the chance to enjoy something different to the standard supermarket offering.

We’re open from 8am to 7pm on Wednesday 6th December: come and join the fun from 4:30pm onwards.


Feed me!

Our late night shopping evening on Wednesday will give you the chance to taste products from our Christmas brochure; plus Joe and Jack will be running butchery demonstrations.

Join us at the shop to sample our food, enjoy a drink or two, and make merry with the Lishman’s crew. Plenty of Ilkley independents will be open on Wednesday thanks to Ilkley BID’s late night shopping evening, and we can’t wait to get the town buzzing on Wednesday evening!

Come and join the fun between 4:30 & 7pm on Wednesday 6th December.
