Lachlan, the the marmaladier at J.B. Shackleton’s, a local marmalade maker from Wonga Park, won a gold medal in the 2018 World’s Original Marmalade Competition in the UK! Their winning marmalade was ‘Luxury Lime Marmalade’. Their commendation said “A remarkable preserve where the punch and brilliance of lime was upfront and proud. You could imagine eating it well beyond the confines of the breakfast table and imagine it favouring evening from desserts to evening cocktails.“
In addition, they won silver medals for their Tahiti Lime and Sweet Orange marmalades, and bronze medals for some of their other marmalades.
Their Breakfast, Tahiti Lime, Tangelo and Grapefruit marmalades had previously won gold medals in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. And their Orange with Grand Marnier marmalade, Cumquat marmalade, Lemon jelly and Orange won silver medals in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2017, they were named ‘World’s Supreme Traditional Marmalade Maker 2017’.
We have tasted many of their marmalades and they really are yummy.
Well done, Lachlan!
