You need to try this Irish marmalade whiskey sour

The team at Wexford Home Preserves have released a new range of limited edition marmalades.


Artisan food producers Wexford Home Preserves have unveiled their delicious range of marmalades for 2020.

Owned by Tom and Laura Sinnott, Tom's aunt Ellen O'Leary originally set up Wexford Home Preserves in 1988. Tom and Laura took the reins afterwards and built the business into a family-run company that creates traditional sweet and savoury preserves using the classic open pot boiling method. The company now supplies over 350 shops nationwide and also makes award-winning products for Dunnes Stores.

For 2020, the couple has created a range of limited edition marmalades bursting with zesty flavour, including their popular Sicilian lemon marmalade which was hugely popular last year. The full range includes Sicilian lemon, Sicilian lemon and lime, Seville orange, clementine, blood orange, orange and whiskey, and orange and strawberry gin marmalade. The full marmalade range is available now in stores around the country.
