Shed 1 & Penningtons’ Blue Lady Mar-tea-ni

Shed 1  & Penningtons’ Blue Lady Mar-tea-ni

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!
