Garry has been making his own jams and marmalade for many years and is delighted to announce that his Sweet Orange Marmalade has recently won a Gold Award in the 2020 World’s Original Marmalade Awards.

Artisan Marmalade Maker - Gold

To quote their website “These quirky awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. They have gone on to generate a following far beyond Jane’s wildest expectations and have humour and a life of their own, inspiring people from all over the world to get involved.”

With each entrant receiving tasting notes feedback and a rating from Bronze, Silver, Gold or Double Gold, Garry was delighted to receive a Gold award with his first entry.

If you would like to take some home with you, jars are now available to purchase before you leave. The following flavours are available.
