Last March into April the weather was glorious. In fact, I distinctly recall the smell of constant bbq's as we escaped into our spring gardens. While it might be very dry it's not warm. It's a real mixed bag, on one hand customers need their butane to keep warm and on the other there's real frustration at not being able to find gas for patio heaters too. Although people aren't firing up their bbq right now, it does mean that those cylinders bought last year won't be being used up either. My point? The challenge to get hold of the larger 13kg patio gas isn't going away anytime soon.
There might be some local stockists with some refills in store, but it's different for us. Customers ask why can't Gottle supply? It's simple, stopping Gottle is like stopping a juggernaut once we turn a product like patio gas on when it's in demand UK wide. We supply such a large area that stocks may simply be in the wrong part of the country and we don't want to be disappointing customers by having to cancel orders. Please be assured we are working with Calor and I am hoping we will be in a position, as we come closer to summer, to have some 13kg patio refills again.
