Pink Gin Marmalade (Limited Availability)

£1.40£4.00

NEW FOR 2018 SEASON

The creation of this very limited product was from a request from Neil Chambers who with his wife Penny are the owners of the Handmade Scotch Egg Company for the opening of their new Bistro /cafe which will be located in the old Worcester Porcelain Works at the rear of Worcester Cathedral.

Lin had to think hard about this one then came up with the idea of a Seville & Blood Orange Marmalade with the addition of Pick Gin. We have called it simply “Pink Gin Marmalade” but Neal of coerce wanted something a little more elaborate and has call it “Lilley The Pink Marmalade”.

We appreciate that there is a number of already “Pink Gins” on the supermarket shelve, but on advice from our very close friend Mr Colin Hinston who with his daughter Mitch run “Tipsy Fruit Gins” suggested to keep it to the old traditional Pink Gin recipe which is made from good quality Gin and Angostura Bitters

Angostura Bitters is a concentrated bitters, or botanically infused alcoholic mixture, made of water, 44.7% ethanol, gentian, herbs and spices by House of Angostura in Trinidad and Tobago. It is typically used for flavoring beverages or less often, food. The bitters were first produced in the town of Angostura (Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela) (hence the name), but do not contain angostura bark. The bottle is easily recognizable by its distinctive oversized label. ‘Angostura’ is Spanish for ‘narrow’, the town of Angostura having been located at the first narrowing of the Orinoco River.

The recipe was developed as a tonic by a German, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert (1796–1870) surgeon general in Simon Bolívar’s army in Venezuela. Siegert began to sell it in 1824 and established a distillery for the purpose in 1830. Siegert was based in the town of Angostura, now Ciudad Bolívar, and used locally available ingredients, perhaps aided by botanical knowledge of the local Amerindians. The product was sold abroad from 1853, and in 1875 the plant was moved from Ciudad Bolivar to Port of Spain, Trinidad, where it remains. Angostura won a medal at the Weltausstellung 1873 Wien. The medal is still depicted on the oversized label, along with reverse which shows Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria in profile.

The exact formula is a closely guarded secret, with only one person knowing the whole recipe, passed hereditarily.

Angostura bitters are alleged to have restorative properties. It was reported to be a remedy for hiccups,] and is thought to be a cure for an upset stomach.
