Family firm Ringtons has teamed up with one of the region’s most popular country house hotels to provide the company’s specialist tea and coffee to its guests.

Jesmond Dene House in Newcastle will also use Ringtons coffee exclusively in its bar and restaurant facilities as part of the deal.

Ringtons has specially designed hotel-branded Jesmond Dene roast and Jesmond Dene decaf coffees which are now available in all 40 of the luxury bedrooms at the five-star hotel.

The hotel rooms are also stocked with Ringtons branded tag and envelope tea and infusions, as well as ancillaries such as sugar and edibles.

Ringtons has supplied the business with on-demand grinders to work alongside its existing barista equipment.

Stephen Drysdale head of Ringtons Beverages said: “Being offered great quality, freshly ground coffee when staying in a hotel greatly adds to the overall visitor experience.

“Jesmond Dene House is a beautiful hotel which offers some of the best accommodation in the region and little touches like the personalised, fresh coffee may seem like a small feature, but this attention to detail makes guests feel extra special and enables the hotel to stand out from the crowd.

“The team at Jesmond Dene House are fantastic to work with and have a real enthusiasm for serving the best quality beverages possible, so we are delighted that even more people are able to enjoy both our tea and coffee in such a beautiful environment.”

Jesmond Dene House has been a tea and infusions customer of Ringtons Beverages for a number of years but the new additions represent a significant extension of the existing contract.

Danny Diver, sommelier from Jesmond Dene House added: “Here at Jesmond Dene House we think it is of the utmost importance to deliver an experience to our guests they will never forget.

“This is achieved not only by friendly, attentive service, but by making sure we provide our guests with the best quality produce we can find. Be it the regionally sourced food in the kitchen, to the local gin with your tonic; we always look for great quality without compromising the diversity of our offering.

“Working with Ringtons has been a delight, as there portfolio is not only of superior quality. It is one of wide variety, which can be tailored to your needs.”
