We take delight in bringing the best of the past to the present and giving it a twist.

A well-loved biscuit with a long legacy is the Shortbread, which is thought to have its origins in medieval Scotland, starting life as leftover bread, dried in an oven and dusted with sugar to make a sweet treat.

It doesn’t sound quite like the popular treat of today and it’s possible the influence of French pastry chef’s in the 16th century contributed to it becoming the crumbly buttery biscuit we know today. Crumbly, due to the high fat content of the butter, which inhibited the formation of the longer stretchy protein chains – hence the name short [like short pastry].

It was an expensive, indulgent affair – Mary Queen of Scots was said to be an ardent fan.

We’ve taken the classic butter shortbread recipe and added a dollop of indulgent Cornish Clotted Cream.

Taken together with The East India Company Strawberry & Pepper Jam and The Staunton Earl Grey Tea, your tea and biscuit break is transformed into an Afternoon Tea event in the grand British tradition.
