Javier De La Hormaza to bring the best of Spain to the UK

Spanish-born Javier De La Hormaza is bringing the best of his home country to British shores with the launch of Grey's Fine Foods, a retail and wholesale food business which will offer rare delicacies such as milk-fed lamb, acorn-fed Ibérico ham, marron glacé and 100-year-old brandy.

"French and Italian foods are very established here but people have not been given access to top-quality Spanish foods like this before," De La Hormaza said.

"We want to offer a range of fine foods and wines that have been almost impossible to source in Britain in the past."

Grey's wine portfolio includes a 100-year-old Peinado Reserva brandy, premium Cava, "Spanish Burgundies" from Bierzo and critically acclaimed reds from Ribera Del Duero.

Currently delivering to delis, restaurants and private clients within Yorkshire, Grey's plans to begin deliveries in cities such as Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester in the next few years, combined with the launch of a new Spanish gastro-bar concept.
