asked to supply Stewarts Garden Centre Christchurch with a selection of our
Gift packs. They were so popular that Stewarts now stock a range of
have delivered just over 120 bottles of our Spiced Mulling Syrup in the last
week. This wonderfully simple method of making Mulled Wine is proving more
popular than ever. That it can be used to make single glasses of Mulled Wine
and also provides the opportunity to offer 'drivers' a warm spiced drink are
contributing factors we have been told. It is served over the bar at Haven
Bar and Bistro, The Cave Milford and with afternoon tea at Careys Manor.
