In 1991, Old Hamlet was bought by Tim & Rachel Bell from its founders and moved to Thorpe Morieux, Suffolk. During 2006, Old Hamlet began using Fairtrade ingredients for its mulling spice products. In 2017, Tim & Rachel Bell retired, selling Old Hamlet Wine and Spice to Steenbergs, an organic spice merchant, and transferred to its premises in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
Today, the Old Hamlet are still hand-blending mulled spice mixes in small batches to its own authentic recipes, which it has developed for more than 40 years.
