Yes Betty, Silent Pool.
The bottle tells the story of the maiden and the Silent Pool, local folklore.

Re shortbread, we had a box of quality shortbread brought as a gift last night, so a perfectly decent cadeau in the UK too.

Re: Brits bearing gifts

I have combined suggestions to put together a UK package. The Irish cheddar I like, Scottish shortbread, Welsh bara brith and my wife's lemon drizzle cake (don't know if that's strictly English but she is - and I will happily eat it, if my French friends don't)

Ooops. Don't tell my Irish son-in-law that I have moved his country to the UK.

Re: Brits bearing gifts

That sounds a very good parcel to offer - I should think that your friend will be very pleased to accept it.

I hope that he hasn’t put himself on a diet after any excesses over the festivities!

Re: Brits bearing gifts

He seems to eat very well, drinks like a fish (but not much water) and still manages to stay as thin as I would like to be. But then again, apart from the occasional siesta, he is on his feet from 6am till chucking out time, 7 days a week. He used to close on Mondays but stays open 7/7 now. I don't know how he does it.
