Help for Heroes Gin and Beer

The great news is that we celebrated St George's Day by raising £600 for Help for Heroes. Thanks to the generosity of our customers we have now raised over £3000 for an extremely worthy cause that supports our troops in need.

Special thanks to David Unsworth, his enthusiasm and knowledge about gin are inspiring and he was extremely entertaining too. We had the added bonus of tasting 6 fantastic gins that few of us had ever come across before. It is well worth a visit to Cartmel to visit David's wonderful wine and spirit shop at Unsworth's Yard .

In other news-the trip to Hawkshead Brewery and Cartmel on June 7th is now fully booked.

On the bar this evening we have:

Hawkshead-NZPA 6%
Wickwar-Real Stout 4.3%
Winster Valley-Best Bitter 3.7%
Kirkby Lonsdale-Monumental 4.5%
Town House-Meridien Mild 4%

Weston's-Old Rosie 7.3%
Abrahall's-Slack Alice 4.6%
Lilley's-Bee Sting Perry 7.5%

Well, we have the big election on Thursday and the outcome is as hard to predict as any election, certainly in my lifetime. So pretty soon we may be living through this:
