Oakheart Bacardi - with a smokey flavour from charred oak barrels
Oakheart Bacardi – with a smokey flavour from charred oak barrels

We have had a brief break… and at 9 am a couple of weeks ago we found ourselves at Manchester airport being offered a rum drink.  A bit early, but hey! It was free!  We are big fans of Bacardi so it seemed churlish to turn it down… and it’s smokey!  As they say, “straight from the heart of the charred oak barrels for a hint of smokiness”.  They’re calling it Oakheart and want to sell it with the line “Oaked and a Coke” please!”  I’d go for Oaked and ginger beer, please….

Anyway, I digress, I should be blogging about our first Wild Boar course of the winter which was on Saturday, and terrific… Chef created a delicious dish of smoked black pudding, smoked scallops and Hollandaise sauce… and so much more, too!

Christmas is approaching and I’m delighted to report our gift vouchers for courses and home smokers are selling well.  I have tinkered a litttle with the website and redesigned the shop – I hope it is more user-friendly now – if you have any difficulties please let me know and I will do my best to make it as simple as possible.  We have a a few extra smokers for sale and will be adding one or two more interesting items soon.
