We are delighted to see the Scottish hospitality sector get ready to re-open on 27th April, and are wishing all our customers well.
We’d like to give a special shout out to Glencaple based The Boathouse who have their own blend created with us, which will now feature in some of their savoury dishes too.
Manager Denyse Boyle said: “The most popular parts of our menu are breakfast, and salads. We’re looking forward to re-opening, making the very most of these choices. We’re very lucky to enjoy custom early in the day, as certainly, the hospitality sector is going to continue to have restricted hours of business for a time. This can be problematic for places which traditionally open later in the day, serving people in the evening. We want to make the very most of the custom we attract. It’s going to be fantastic to welcome back our customers, we have really missed them.”
Denyse explained that chef Allana had incorporated her Boathouse Blend into both delicious salad dressings, and as a coffee rub on brisket for an outstanding beef sandwich.
“We’re really excited about these dishes which Allana has been hard at work developing over lockdown. I have tasted these myself and I think it all works really well. The salads have an amazing zing whilst the coffee rub makes the beef moist and succulent. We can’t wait to see what our customers think. They already love the coffee which is used in a range of hot drinks, whilst in the summer, we serve cold coffees too,” she said.
“It is something special to have your own bespoke blend for your business,” finished Denyse. “We want to share and promote the provenance and sustainability of the ingredients we use, so the fact we can extend this to our coffee is a real selling point.”
We’re delighted that Denyse is pleased with her coffee, and we commend her creativity. As a fully digital, one stop shop, we believe that using Blendly in a variety of ways, whether it’s in hot drinks, or as we have read here, in dishes, is a novel step forward. The Boathouse’ owner can also sell the Blendly blend to others if they wish, so we are a way to build coffee sales as we come out of this pandemic.
