Hotel strengthens its character with North East supplier base

Hotel Indigo Durham, which opened its doors in spring, has demonstrated its commitment to the region by partnered with several North East suppliers.

Durham Food Hub, Ringtons, Durham Distillery, Sweet Sally Cinnamon and Maddie Alexander are all on the list of suppliers.

Hotel guests can enjoy local produce through the partnership with Durham Food Hub, as 34 products from several suppliers will feature on the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

Sweet Sally Cinnamon handmake a range of baking mixes and sweets and hotel guests will find treats such as popcorn and cinder toffee in the rooms, as well as premium toiletries by North East beauty brand, Maddie Alexander.

Durham Distillery’s managing director Jon Chadwick said: “We are a small distillery based in Durham, supplying gin, vodka and liqueurs to Hotel Indigo Durham.

“We love food and drink and we get very excited when new bars and restaurants open in Durham. We got in touch with Hotel Indigo Durham straight away to see if we could become a supplier as we love the new hotel. Although we live in and around Durham, we are trying to find an excuse to spend a night in one of the hotel’s amazing new rooms!”

Hotel Indigo is located at the Grade II Old Shire Hall on Old Elvet in Durham, which was formerly the home of Durham County Council. The building has undergone a £15m refurbishment to create the four-star, 83-bedroom hotel, which also includes Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, Rotunda cocktail bar, and Tinderbox coffee shop.

Hotel Indigo Durham sales and marketing manager Luke Balcombe said: “The Old Shire Hall is an iconic building in the heart of Durham that is steeped in heritage and culture. The re-design of the hotel reflects the character and history of the city, therefore it was only fitting that we chose to partner with North East based suppliers.”
