The Gincase Feature on ITV’s ‘Ade in Britain’

The Gincase Feature on ITV’s ‘Ade in Britain’ hosted by comic actor and presenter Ade Edmonson helping to see our reputation spread far and wide.

The programme is about 18th century Whitehaven; which back then was the second largest port in Britain. It was great to be part of the show and host Ade and his crew at The Gincase for most of the day.

Ade In Britain is themed around Edmondson touring Britain in a Mini to sample the best of British food.
