Our good friends and suppliers of high quality, ethically-sourced coffee, Penningtons are based just a few miles from The Old Calf Shed, in Kendal. Not only are they coffee roasters but Tea Merchants, too. When you come and enjoy our Afternoon G&Tea you can choose from a selection of their loose leaf tea, served in vintage teapots.
We asked Gina to create something special with our Fancy Frolic Gin and the resulting Blue Lady Mar-tea-ni is just delicious!
