Lachlan, from J.B. Shackleton’s, a local marmalade maker from Wonga Park, won Double Gold medal for the best traditional marmalade in the 2017 World’s Original Marmalade Competition in the UK! Their winning marmalade was “Luxury Grapefruit Marmalade with a hint of Honey”. This same marmalade was also awarded a Gold at the 2016 Australian Fine Food Awards.
As a result, Lachlan has been named as ‘World’s Supreme Traditional Marmalade Maker 2017’.
In addition, they won silver medals for their Tahiti Lime and Orange marmalades, and a bronze medal for their Tangelo marmalade. Their Breakfast, Tahiti Lime and Tangelo marmalades had previously won gold medals in 2012, 2014 and 2015. And their Orange with Grand Marnier marmalade, Cumquat marmalade and Lemon jelly won silver medals in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
We have tasted many of their marmalades and they really are yummy.
Well done, Lachlan!
