Crosby Coffee to return to Aintree Racecourse

Micro artisan coffee roaster Crosby Coffee backs another winner with Aintree racecourse and Jockey Club Catering. The 2017 Randox Health Grand National will see the local independent business supply coffee to the entire site during the 3 day festival as well as serving their delicious drinks to lucky race goers on the Queen Mother Lawn in this year’s festival zone.

Since supplying the 2016 Crabbie’s Grand National with their own unique blend Crosby Coffee have been hard at work to develop their relationship with Jockey Club catering and secured a contract with Haydock Park Racecourse. The small team of 4 also won Producer of the Year at the recent Liverpool Food & Drink Festival Awards and were selected to feature in The Liverpool Cookbook and Northern Independent Coffee Guides.

This year will see a new and improved Grand National Blend made with Colombian, Brazilian, Honduras and Ethiopian coffees creating a smooth, full bodied post dinner brew for the lucky sports fans dining in all of this year’s hospitality areas. In addition to this a pop up Crosby Coffee lounge will make its first appearance at Aintree Racecourse to serve their award winning coffee, rich Belgian Hot chocolates and speciality infused teas.

Andrew Horwood, senior operations manager, Jockey Club Catering, said: "We are pleased to share Crosby Coffee with guests visiting Aintree Racecourse knowing how well the special blend has been received previously. The partnership is another way to celebrate local suppliers and support local food producers, something that is at the heart of Jockey Club Catering."

 Jockey Club Catering is a joint venture between The Jockey Club, the largest commercial group in British racing, and Compass Group UK & Ireland. The partnership was launched in 2009 with the aim of providing premium quality catering at all 15 of The Jockey Club racecourses.
