This makes sense to me, so P&B Imperial Rum ordered direct from their site. £17.98 delivered.Is there any problem buying direct from the artisan? It gives them a better margin and helps keep their businesses afloat? I've nothing against retail outlets who are essential and do great work, but I for one would be all for giving the most support to the soap makers themselves. The two who I've had email contact with - Sharron from NSS and Darron from Wickhams - have been hugely helpful and approachable and that's where my money would go.
