Islay B&B Wins Silver with Laphroaig Marmalade

The Old Excise House B&B, Islay wins a Silver award at The Worlds Original Marmalade awards 2014. Emma entered her Seville orange marmalade with a touch of Laphroaig quarter cask whisky, to this years awards. Being her first entry and with a record number of entries from all over the world she was surprised and delighted to win Silver in the Hotel & B&B category.

The basic recipe used was handed down in the family and she did not have far to look for an interesting addition. The Old Excise House was originally built for Laphroaig to house their excise officers and is situated on the coast a stones throw from the distillery. Guests at the B&B this year can spread the award winning marmalade on their toast or even request some marmalade sandwiches to keep under their hat for later, in the style of a certain bear from darkest Peru!

The festival and awards were held at the start of National Marmalade week (1st to 8th March) at Dalemain Mansions and Gardens, Cumbria, UK. The judging was carried out by professional judges including Dan Lepard, Baking Guru and Elizabeth Field, New York Food Writer.

The Maggie

Buy The Maggie from Amazon The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. It is however a 'gem' in the true sense of the word. The film has everything, humour, tragedy, pathos, romance. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time!
