At the top of the garden at the Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh, we have an ancient mulberry tree that’s over 300 years old. Every year when the fruit ripens, our team of chefs pick the berries to make a delicious jam that’s used within our signature Mulberry cocktails!
We know when the Mulberries are ‘just right’ thanks to a change in their colour from pale green and pink to a deep purple or black. Our Mulberry picking season is usually in late August and early September, however thanks to the heatwave we’ve experienced this summer – the team have been busy picking them already!
Thought to have originated from China; Mulberry trees are very hardy and therefore multiple varieties can be found around the world. Not only are the berries loved for their sweet, sharp flavour but they are also packed full of nutrients… So there really is no need to deny yourself the enjoyment of our famous cocktails! ?
