British Beer Mustard, 140g – Made with a malty local Wiltshire beer, it does wonders for hunks of ham, pork pies or flinty Cheddar
Particularly British Piccalilli, 270g – A curious mustard pickle packing a rather sharp punch and moreish crunch, it’s beautiful piled onto a Ploughman’s and alongside meaty terrines as well as Scotch eggs
Spitfire Chilli Mustard, 140g – A volcanic condiment for courageous tastebuds, it fires up cold meats, cheeses and sausages
Perfect Ploughman’s Pickle, 295g – This has everything you want in a pickle – a toothsome crunch, a sweet tang and a sharp bite. There’s no better partner for a ploughman’s, or a thick-cut ham sandwich
Fresh Chilli Jam, 250g – The original, multi award-winner. The sticky-sweet chilli jam smoulders with a gentle heat from fistfuls of fresh red chillies. Incredibly versatile, it’s beautiful with fish, meats, on sarnies and with creamy cheeses. What are we saying? It’s great with ALL cheese!

Solid cologne allows your Daddy to apply directly on to pulse points (hands, wrists and neck) at will with the convenience of a travel-friendly container. We like Alexander – a sweet, rich and sophisticated scent that begins with fresh grapefruit, leading to the heart of aromatic bay leaf and jasmine. The woody base includes patchouli, oak moss and ambergris.
