Fireside, Mynwy Valley

In the depths of winter, when the ground is cold under striding welly, the sun feeble and the sky darkening overhead, the great British country inn of popular imagination summons all-comers with an open fire spitting and humming in the corner, pints of ale hand-pumped at the bar, and the promise of something hot and hearty drifting in from the kitchen.

The inspiration for the warmest fragrance in the Noble Isle collection comes from a coaching inn planted in the Welsh foothills that has been welcoming weathered travellers for centuries with flickering hearths, time-worn flagstone floors and oak beams. From the neat raised beds of its traditional organic kitchen garden, we have plucked nutritious red, yellow and white beets. Superveg beetroot is extraordinarily rich in vitamins, minerals and natural antioxidants.

Britain in a Bottle Noble Isle sources red, yellow and white beets from the certified organic kitchen garden at The Bell at Skenfrith, a 17th-century Welsh coaching inn perched prettily on the banks of the River Monnow.
