With the launch of our very own Wheadon’s Gin last week, meaning that you’ll now be able to “take a bottle home from the Bella’s bar”, we were delighted to be featured in the current (June) issue of Delicious Magazine. Their Hungry Traveller section celebrated six places “where you can see what it’s like to be a creator of fine food and drink, get a feel for what goes on…and hole up for a couple of nights too”, and the Bella Luce was featured alongside destinations ranging from a Licolnshire flour mill to a Welsh smallholding.
Delicious journalist Hugh Thompson visited the Bella back in spring and joined Luke Wheadon for a Gin Experience around the copper stills at the back of our cellar lounge, tasting a number of different gins and cocktails to learn more about the flavours imparted by the different botanicals and to find out which particular flavours he preferred.
“Then, while you dine in the excellent restaurant (he was a chef after all), they make a gin that matches your preferences.”
You too can join Luke for your own Gin Experience, ranging from a pre-dinner talk and tasting through to having Luke distill a bespoke gin that matches your preferences whilst you dine - including a bottle to take-away. And with the recent launch of Wheadon’s Gin you’ll also be able to enjoy the results of Luke’s own comprehensive taste-tests and experiments by taking a bottle of Wheadon’s pink grapefruit and locally foraged rock samphire gin away with you, meaning that you can continue to enjoy it long after you've left the Bella's bar.
