Here at Fortnum’s, we love to spread a little joy – in fact, to do so on an increasingly regular basis is one of our resolutions for 2019. We particularly like spreading said joy when it comes in the form of a good marmalade, preferably on hot buttered toast.
Which is why every year, we are proud to be a sponsor of The World’s Original Marmalade Awards & Festival – an annual event where, frankly, joy-spreading is so rife it could almost be considered excessive.
The winner's of this years Dalemain Marmalade Awards were announced this week at the Dalemain Mansion in the Lake District. Beth Furnell's Bitter Sweet Marmalade beat over 3,000 entries from 40 countries to be crowned 2019's Homemade Award Winner. Beth's marmalade will now be commercially produced by Thursday Cottage and sold at Fortnum & Mason and Dalemain throughout the year, with 50p from each jar going to Hospice at Home Carlisle & North Lakeland.
