The Original Dalemain World Marmalade Awards

The Original Dalemain World Marmalade Awards

We are thrilled Bertha’s Revenge Small Batch Orange Marmalade has won Silver in the Artisan section of The World’s Original Dalemain Marmalade Awards 2024.

The marmalade is made by our friend Veronica Molloy and her fab team at Crossogue Preserves.

If you are resident in Ireland and would like to buy our marmalade, it can be purchased online as part of our Bertha’s Revenge gin and marmalade gift box and please head over to our online shop.

Our marmalade is also enjoyed by guests staying at our home Ballyvolane House.

The Awards are sponsored by Fortnum & Mason and Rathbones and are proud to raise money for palliative care around the world. This year’s key beneficiary is once again Hospice at Home Carlisle & North Lakeland, and to date the Awards have raised over £270,000 for palliative care around the world.

The Dalemain World Marmalade Awards were founded in 2005 to help to preserve, grow and widen one of the most British of customs – marmalade making. From small beginnings they have grown into an internationally recognized event. The Awards have sister festivals in both Japan and Australia. The Awards have humour and a life of their own and have inspired people from all over the world to get involved. Every year around 3,000 jars of marmalade are sent from countries as far away as the USA, New Zealand, South Korea, Botswana, Japan, Australia and Brazil, while the Artisan Marmalade competition has helped to promote small producers around the world. Judged by a small panel of experts, Dalemain roundels denote marmalade of exemplary quality. At the heart of the Awards & Festival is Dalemain Mansion, a Georgian stately home lived in by the same family for over 300 years and the holder of a rich collection of early marmalade recipes.
