Rhubarb & Ginger Tray Bake Recipe by Val Stones from Great British Bake Off
I’m from Yorkshire and almost every Yorkshire garden has a rhubarb crown or two. Although I live in Somerset I have a crown of rhubarb that I inherited from my mum and dad’s garden. As children we were given a small stick of rhubarb and a little triangular bag made from newspaper and filled with sugar. We dipped the rhubarb stick in the sugar and sucked and chewed on the sweet yet at the same time tart sticks, we thought we were in heaven.

Whisky Launch Update: Raising the bar at Aber Falls!
The launch of our first whisky, and the first to be distilled in North Wales for over 100 years, has meant the Distillery has been a busy place over the last few months.
Our whisky started life in 2018 and then spent the next three years maturing before being disgorged from the casks by our Master Blender, Dr Kirsty McCallum, ably assisted by our extremely talented Distillery team. It was ready for bottling in early May 2021 and went on sale on 17th May at noon. Such was the demand that we had queues out of the door of the visitor centre, and we sold out within one hour of the whisky appearing on our website – now that’s the spirit!
