Edinburgh Preserves was set up by Sandy Herd in 1995 with a simple idea to produce a family recipe for Tomato Chutney. Since then we have developed an award winning range of Chutneys, Sauces, Jams, Marmalades, Pickles and other Preserves. Quality is very important and we use only the best ingredients and the Preserves are only produced in small batches with care and attention.
We are a small family business with Sandy, his artist wife Charlotte and other family members all playing a part. Christine in the Office, Jackie in production and Bob in distilling, all working together at our base in the beautiful East Lothian.
We have a wide range of luxurious Preserves available and award winning innovative Gift Packs.
In 2019 we set up a small Distillery for making Spirits and Liqueurs to complement our range. Watch out for new ideas over the next few months using local ingredients for the Red Admiral Gin, Bramble Whisky Liqueur, Sloe Gin and other delicious drinks.
Now we have reached 2020 we continue to inovate with new ideas and continue to buy goods and services which are derived from natural and sustainable sources and try to manufacture and deliver in an enviromentally responsible way. Focus this year has turned to reducing our Carbon footprint.
We are based near Edinburgh but work closely with a network of Social Enterprises around the whole of the UK who help us with our Gift Packing.
