Noble Isle joins Walpole Brands of Tomorrow & BAFTA 2016

Noble Isle joins Walpole Brands of Tomorrow & BAFTA 2016

On the night of the 18th of January at the Savoy Hotel London, Noble Isle had the honour of winning a place in the 2016 Walpole Brands of Tomorrow programme alongside eleven other British luxury brands. This prestigious initiative acknowledges the trailblazing innovators who have caught the attention of the world of luxury, paving the way for generations to come.

We were also delighted to attend the Walpole 2016 Chairmen & Chief Executives’ Dinner on the 25th of January at the Corinthia Hotel London amongst some of the luxury industry’s most dynamic leaders. It was a glorious celebration of British design and talent. All guests received a bottle of our Whisky & Water Hand Wash as a going home gift in tribute to Burns Night.

This rich fragrance redolent of the finest, oak-aged single malt, features notes of warm vanilla and cedarwood and skin-calming extract of Scottish malted barley sourced from our partners at time-honoured Balvenie Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland.

For the third consecutive year, Noble Isle are privileged to be partnering with BAFTA to support the 69th EE British Academy Film Awards taking place at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden on the 14th of February.
Participating once again in BAFTA preparations is particularly significative to us as it encapsulates everything we are passionate about at Noble Isle, recognising the best of British.

All BAFTA nominees and attendees will leave the event with an exclusive Gift Bag designed by Globe-Trotter featuring a gorgeous collection of goodies including a bottle of Champagne Taittinger, an Atelier Swarovski Crystal Chaton as well as a Noble Isle Rhubarb Rhubarb! duo of hand wash and lotion.

Our iconic collection of Rhubarb Rhubarb! products feature the unmistakeable Noble Isle bittersweet fragrance of rhubarb, juniper berry, rosemary and cedarwood, reminiscent of the dewy wake-up of a Yorkshire spring. Our naturally cleansing extract of ‘forced’ rhubarb is sourced from E. Oldroyd & Sons, a sixth generation rhubarb farm in the Yorkshire Triangle, overseen by the ‘high priestess of rhubarb’, Janet Oldroyd.

My Kind of Country – Noble Isle Founder, Katy Simpson

As seen in Country Homes & Interiors Magazine

You may have seen the interview with our fabulous founder Katy Simpson in Country Homes & Interiors magazine this January, where Katy talks about festive celebrations, country life and all things Noble Isle.

But just in case you missed it, here’s a few excerpts from the feature, that give a seasonal glimpse of the woman behind Noble Isle – the beauty company that blends elderflowers and gooseberries, honey and rhubarb into the luxury bath and body products - that you’ve all come to know and love.

What’s your favourite thing to do in Winter? – “Sitting by the fire”

Favourite Christmas scent? – “The Noble Isle Fireside range, which has top notes of grapefruit and pink pepper, layered with cinnamon, cypress oil, ginger, oakmoss and vanilla – it’s a real Christmas scent” 

Tell us a little about Noble Isle and its beginnings? Noble Isle was the term used in the 15th century for what we know as Britain. The name captures the essence of the brand because so many of our ingredients are sourced from locally celebrated producers throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.”

What inspires you most about living in the country? – “Having studied fashion and trend forecasting I learned early on that all colour combinations and patterns are based on nature – my head is always full of natural colour combinations. I use them to get inspiration for the boxes and ribbons for gift sets.”

What couldn't you live without? – “My friends and family, and woodland walks with Hoagie and Slippers my two Scotland Terriers (half Westie and half Scottie).”

What’s on the stove this time of year? – “My favourite dish for festive celebration is roast goose with a homemade stuffing of roast plum, black pudding and walnut served with carrot and turnip mash.”

What’s Your New Year Resolution? “To cook more. It’s such a therapeutic thing to do – it’s like yoga!”

You can read the full feature written by journalist Sarah Wilson in January issue of Country Homes & Interiors. Wishing you all a Happy New Year – from Noble Isle!
