Emma Goudie from The Old Excise House Bed and Breakfast near Port Ellen is going from strength to strength with her Marmalade. Last year she won a silver medal for her Seville orange marmalade with a touch of Laphroaig quarter cask whisky. This year she scooped a Gold award in the 10th World's Original Marmalade Awards with an even further improved version of Seville Orange and Laphroaig whisky marmalade, which scored high marks for its appearance, colour, consistency, aroma and flavour.
The Awards took place at Dalemain in Cumbria on 28th February and 1st March and kicked off National Marmalade week. The Old Excise House said they were delighted to win the award. "This is a golden award for us in more ways than one! It is exciting to have won a Gold during Scotland's year of food and drink and Laphroaig distilleries 200th anniversary. The award winning marmalade is on the breakfast table at The Old Excise House already! Congratulations Emma!!
