Seasonal Sensations

Today is the first day of Autumn and, despite today's welcome sunshine, the weather has certainly changed. The nights are drawing in and we are craving open fires, warm blankets and home comforts to get us in the seasonal spirit!The early crops of apples and blackberries have ensured a fabulous fresh batch of delights for our autumnal treat - our Apple and Blackberry Gin. Made with fresh, local apples (often from our own trees) and perfectly fragrant and juicy blackberries, we think this beautifully blended gin is a gem.  It is perfect in our cocktail of the month... The Fordington Bramble Fizz...Fill a cocktail shaker (or a large jam jar will do) with a handful of ice. Pour over 50ml Fordington Apple and...

In praise of all things cheese related

The sun was shining and there was a palpable sense of freedom and excitement in the air when we took our range of Fordington Gin to last weekend’s excellent Sturminster Cheese festival.  Like many, we are a huge fan of all things cheese! Even better if they are locally made by passionate artisans -  I couldn’t celebrate the cheese festival without a particular mention of Carol from the Cornish Cheese Company, a fabulous company making fantastic cheese and a great new friend.  It was a joy to be there - massive thanks to the herculean efforts of the festival committee and its troupe of volunteers for organising such a wonderful show. Thank you also to all of our customers, new...
