This Christmas we're bringing you some of our favourite local treats from across the nation. From England's oldest biscuit to Kendal Mint Cake (perfect as a refreshing treat after Christmas lunch or dinner...), this is English heritage food at its best. Beautifully gift wrapped in paper designed by the 19th century English designer William Morris.
In this gift set you'll find:
- Grantham gingerbread biscuits (115g). The history behind England's oldest commercially-traded biscuit goes all the way back to the 1700s, when it was first created in the Lincolnshire town of Grantham.
- Dalemain Christmas marmalade (340g). The Dalemain estate in Cumbria has been the home of marmalade making since 1679.
- Traditional tea caddy with 50 golden tea bags (made from 100% plant-based material). Family business Ringtons first started selling teas in 1907 in Newcastle.
- Fruit cake (300g). Made by Botham's. Female entrepreneur Elizabeth Botham founded this Yorkshire bakery in 1865.
- Kendal Mint Cake (85g). This minty confection was born out of a kitchen mishap in the town of Kendal in 1869.
- Treacle toffee (180g). Based on an old family recipe, Romney's treacle toffee is still made in open copper pans and broken by hand, using traditional toffee hammers.
Suitable for vegetarians. If you have any doubts or queries regarding allergies, please do get in touch with us.
