We are delighted that our new ‘Cherry and Almond pudding with Alnwick Rum Almond Liqueur’ has won the ‘sweet bakes’ category in the 2018 Great British Food Awards.

The high calibre of all 14 products that made the ‘ sweet bakes’ shortlist must have presented a difficult decision for the judging panel, the renowned Raymond Blanc and his team from Le Manoir au quat’saisons.

The Judges said ‘Nice light sponge, good balance of fruit and liqueur and a great flavour’


It was a great surprise to win, especially as this pudding has just been launched. Earlier this year, Alnwick Rum asked us if we could create a pudding using their almond liqueur and we set about creating this new recipe. Our team are all thrilled with this award – all those tasting sessions around the kitchen table, have certainly paid off!’

We hope that you too will enjoy the pudding.
