‘Mum’s the word’ gift hampers

As The French Rooms, Bushmills remains closed we are thinking of another important date for restaurants coming up. Mothers Day is a bit like Valentines, people enjoy heading out to a restaurant to be spoilt! Covid 19 is still with us so we decided to team up with the producers of our new favourite thing – The Woodpile. This artisan producer is based here on the beautiful North Coast in Northern Ireland and have been thoughtfully creating small batch, hand poured soy wax candles. Having fallen in love with the scent in a friend’s home and subsequently been gifted a couple (which were gratefully received) I pledged to spread the word about these special local products.

The Woodpile


We are delighted to be teaming up with the talented producers of The Woodpile to bring together a special gift, just in time for Mother’s Day. We are creating a hamper of sweet treats, fresh baked scones and a selection of cheese for Mum to enjoy, washed down with Blush bubbly with the tranquil scent created by The Woodpile’s , Bergamot & Oud soy wax candle. You are invited to ‘take a walk in the woods today’ when you open this special gift. Bergamot & Oud is a smokey, woody base topped up with crisp bergamot & orange. The combination is unique as you will get the floral, citrus tones amongst the atmospheric forest nose.
