Yorkshire's Rhubarb Triangle
We'd love to tell you that Rhucello was made at some picturesque rural estate, where the grass is greener than green and the sky is always blue, but this
just isn't true. Rhucello is concocted in a house in suburban Wakefield,
a town at the heart of the rhubarb triangle.
Duck's Foot or Rhubarb?
Rhucello is made with Yorkshire Rhubarb, supplied fresh from the farm down the road. In fact, when we go to collect the rhubarb we often see them picking the stalks on the way up the drive. Here at Rhucello, we try to use the rhubarb on the same day we get it.
The Rhubarb Triangle is a 9-square-mile triangle in West Yorkshire, England between Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell famous for producing early forced rhubarb.
Rhubarb thrives in the wet cold winters in Yorkshire. West Yorkshire once produced 90% of the world's winter forced rhubarb from the forcing sheds that were common across the fields. In February 2010, Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb was awarded Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status by the European Commission’s Protected Food Name scheme after being recommended by Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
