ON HER PLATE
What’s cooking in Angela’s world this week
A particularly brilliant butcher has just opened near me in Old Spitalfields Market. At The Butchery Ltd, Nathan Mills (aka @naththebutcher) and Ruth Siwinski do whole carcass butchery and sell pasture-fed native breeds that they get from small farms around the country.
SACRED CHRISTMAS PUDDING GIN £34.45/70CL; 40%, THEWHISKY EXCHANGE.COM
“Made with actual Christmas pudding, which is really cool. Gin purists will approve, since the pudding flavours don’t overpower, but there’s a definite festive feel to it.”
7.5/10 THE PUDDINGSTONE DISTILLERY PUD PUD CASK GIN £36/50CL; 40%, PUDDINGSTONE DISTILLERY.COM
“Smells like brandy butter, thanks to the port cask it’s aged in, and there’s a real richness to it. One to drink in front of the fire.”
