Rare Bird Gin Afternoon Tea

02/11/2019

Having lived and holidayed extensively in Europe, the founders of Rare Bird Distillery were struck by the outstanding quality of local food produce found there. At the same time, the appeal of the ‘usual suspects’, meaning the everyday gin brands found in the supermarket were fast losing their  appeal, and so they decided to make our own, and Rare Bird Gin was born. Soon after making this decision, the hunt was on for suitable premises, and good fortunate prevailed when they stumbled upon a derelict former stable block –not lacking in vision, and where some might see dust and debris, they saw a beautiful distillery, complete with a bar, seating, and retail space. The event includes; Gin cocktail on arrival, Full afternoon tea and two gin and tonics to taste during your afternoon tea.

Bronte Gin Afternoon Tea

06/07/2019

Samantha Long, founder of the Spirits of Bronte Drinks Company, is a ‘Yorkshire lass’ who has lived in Bronte Country for over 30 years. As a lover of small batch gins, she was inspired by the rugged landscape and literary heritage of her local area to create an old-school drink that tasted like when ‘gin was gin’. With no experience in the drinks industry, she did her research and worked with one of the UK’s leading master distillers to create a recipe that, together with the brand and her story, has won the hearts of gin lovers! Just a few months after launching, Sam is now partnering with a local distiller which makes the small-batch craft Yorkshire Vodka, and will now be having Yorkshire Lass’ Gin distilled, bottled, and labelled locally using Royal Spring water straight from the Haworth moors! The event includes; Gin cocktail on arrival, Full afternoon tea and two gin and tonics to taste during your afternoon tea.

Colombo & Fils Wine Dinner

16/05/2019

A rising star from the Rhône and one of the youngest from the region. Made in limited quantities by Laure Colombo, this boutique label is an inspired and personal story best told by Laure herself: “Growing up in Cornas has not always been an easy thing! I would have loved to take the tube to go to school, to spend my Wednesday afternoons at the public gardens and to feed the pandas at the zoo before sunset. Instead, I had to take the “Rue Pied la Vigne”, lined with cherry trees and old vine stocks of Syrah in order to reach school. I had to play on very steep slopes covered with vines, and before the family Sunday lunch that my parents use to prepare and serve with great wines from around the world, I had to feed the donkeys with carrots collected from the family garden! My parents never pushed me to follow in their footsteps and become a winemaker like them. Instead, I chose to travel – maybe because of all those bottles from around the world! I travelled until one smoggy morning in New Delhi I realised that the magic potion from my childhood was taking hold! I was missing the vines and the cellar that were so familiar to me. It’s when you are far away that the things that are so common become so precious! Without noticing it my roots were coming back. Since that morning, the magical potion has invaded my entire person and the passion had become a reality. That is how Colombo & Fille was born! Nothing more.” Included is a three course dinner which perfectly accompanies the selected wines.
