Bishop of Norwich
The decanter set Bishop of Norwich is influenced by and named after the classic tale of the ‘Bishop of Norwich’, a nineteenth-century gentleman notorious for forgetting to pass the port wine during dinners. This set brings about the return of humble rituals from the past through a drink that has become quintessentially British.
When port wine is passed around at British meals, one tradition dictates that a diner passes the decanter to the left immediately after pouring a glass for his or her neighbor on the right. The decanter should not stop its clockwise progress around the table until it is empty. If someone is seen to have failed to follow tradition, the breach is brought to their attention by asking ‘Do you know the Bishop of Norwich?’. Those aware of the tradition treat the question as a reminder, while those who do not are told ‘He’s a terribly good chap, but he always forgets to pass the port!’.
