Our ingredients The finest ingredients for the perfect pudding

A little about our ingredients...

Anyone can say they use the 'finest ingredients', so here's a little more information to prove it's not just spin. We really have spent years refining our ingredients and suppliers to ensure our Christmas Pudding is truly memorable:

Ale and Brandy:
Arguably the most important ingredients when it comes to the flavour of a fine Christmas Pudding! The sweetness of the Port in Hanlon's Port Stout, and the delicate flavour of the Somerset Cider Brandy, are a delightful combination. 

Vine fruits:
There are a lot of cheap imports available these days, but of course you still get what you pay for, so we go for the best, such as Californian raisins which are sun-dried on the vine. The high quality fruits are richer in flavour, softer in texture and not gritty like some of their cheaper counterparts.
 

Your puddings made such an impact that I've been waiting in eager anticipation all year for Christmas to come round to order again!

Cherries:

Our glace cherries are coloured with fruit juices and as a result have a deep burgundy colour and soft texture that blends beautifully with the rest of the pudding during the maturation process. A far cry from the cheap and nasty, bright red ones!

Breadcrumbs:
We make all our breadcrumbs by hand, using fresh bread from the Crusty Cob bakery just a couple of miles down the road from us. They use none of the 'extras' you'll find in a lot of modern bread - just flour, water, yeast and salt!

Fresh fruit:
Our apples are UK Bramleys, and we buy our carrots from a local greengrocer. Our orange and lemon is all freshly squeezed and zested by a local company and is not from concentrate.
