Anything that starts with ‘Belvoir’ as a name has a special place in my heart – let me tell you why (I promise this won’t take long!)
When we were getting married, we were pretty sure we were going to get married somewhere outside London. The better-half’s family live up north and so we thought it might be nice to look for venues up there. We narrowed it down to two – I won’t tell you what the other one was, suffice to say, when the wedding planner came back to me to inform me that the venue was unfortunately taken, I accidentally hit reply instead of forwarding it to the better half, and promptly sent the wedding planner ‘oh shit – its not available. F*&^ing bo*^ok*s.’ Yeah, well, the better half didn’t get that message and we didn’t look at other dates for that venue – she probably thought I was a rude cow and didn’t want me getting married there anyway!
We were left with only one venue left, and it was by no means a shabby one, no sir. We got married in Belvoir Castle. Its an absolutely GORGEOUS castle and it was a day I will never forget. Here are a couple of pictures – courtesy of Kate Bowles our wedding planner:
Anyway, from the Belvoir Fruit Farms, comes their very own range of fruity drinks (all of which was served at our wedding bar some new flavours of course) I am so happy that they have expanded and now are selling in various supermarkets. The cousin of the Duke of Rutland (who lives in Belvoir Castle with his family) runs the company that produces these gorgeous drinks.
Our favourite is the Elderflower – there are 11 flavours all in all;
- Elderflower & Rose Pressé
- Elderflower Pressé
- Cranberry & Raspberry Pressé
- Organic Elderflower Pressé
- Handmade Lemonade (with a hint of orange blossom)
- Apple Pressé
- Ginger Beer
- Raspberry Lemonade Pressé
- Organic Lemonade Pressé
- Organic Ginger Beer Pressé
- Mulled Winter Punch
Prices vary from £2.46 – £2.76 for 75cl. Of course, you can order it directly from the website Belvoir Fruit Farms (where you can can get various other things like cordials, recipes etc etc) or you might also choose to get it from the following supermarkets: Asda, Waitrose, Tesco, Booths, Ocado and Sainbury’s.
If I am not wrong – Pizza Express serve these lovelies up too. Have a try!
