Mulled Sloe Gin
15th November 2016
Sloe gin is a seasonal favourite of ours at Bel & The Dragon. Making it yourself is a sloe process but thankfully our partners & friends at Sipsmith have this covered. Their splendid recipe uses hand picked sloes and their award-winning gin as the base. Furthermore, it makes a very pleasing winter warming cocktail and a refreshing change from the traditional whisky & wine varieties…

Natural wine at Albury Vineyard
15th August 2016
There is no doubt about it, English sparkling wine’s premium status is well earned. In fact, it won 80 medals & trophies in this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards. So do not be surprised if you hear talk, on the grapevine that is, of a new viticultural phenomenon. I am, of course, referring to natural wine.
September Supper Club
8th August 2016
Our first Supper Club of the autumn season on Tuesday 6th September will delve into the world of Italian wine. With 20 different regions, hundreds of DOC designations and even more native varieties, it is no surprise that Italy is the world’s largest wine producer. That said, the majority of the harvest remains in its country of origin. After all, wine is food to the local folk and it is rare that a meal is consumed without a glass or two. Yes, Italian wine is a foodie wine that complements a myriad of dishes.
Spirited Away: Bombay Sapphire
25th July 2016
I have always had a passion for gin and rather fortuitously work with the spirit on an almost daily basis in my role as Bar Operations Manager at Bel & The Dragon. I have learnt to be discerning over the years – after all, quality is everything. We work with a number of artisan gin makers and Bombay Sapphire has long been a favoured brand.
