The forthcoming marriage of HRH Prince William & Kate Middleton has provided culinary inspiration for Hawkshead Relish to cook up a commemorative preserve for the event namely Princely Plum Jam.

Hawkshead Relish prides itself on using only locally sourced ingredients and enjoys celebrating its regional and national identity.

English Plums have been combined with champagne to create a ‘Wedding breakfast’ condiment which hopes to appeal to consumers wanting to celebrate British nationality by purchasing from a British brand which sources locally and not internationally.

The company based in the Lake District has been recognised with over 40 Great Taste Awards for their creations as well as a host of other accolades.

Katie Benson who heads up the sales operations said:

“We really wanted to get into the Royal Festivities and a commemorative condiment seemed to be an obvious choice for us.

“We really wanted it to be representative of Great Britishness with a splash of Fizz as a celebration.”

The Limited Edition preserve is on sale in specialist independents throughout the UK and the Hawkshead Relish website.

Katie added: “It makes a wonderful gift and one that is absolutely delicious which can be enjoyed on the Big day or any day”
