According to a Scottish legend, the creation of orange marmalade in Britain occurred by accident. The legend tells of a ship carrying a cargo of oranges that broke down in the port of Dundee, resulting in some ingenious locals making marmalade out of the shipment. This design was inspired by the historical association that Dundee has with marmalade, a preserve distinguished by thick chunks of bitter Seville orange rind. This sculpture is called Marmalade and celebrates this local history through an amalgamation of designs in mosaic. Look at the tiles carefully and you may find a few snippets of history.
Mackays has built a reputation for taste, provenance and tradition.
At the heart of the taste is the Scottish soft fruits which are used in every jar of the strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant jam. Mackays work directly with 12 Scottish fruit farmers who have decades of experience producing the finest soft fruits in the world.
Dundee is the home of marmalade and they are proud to be the custodians of a world renowned icon! The secret to Mackays award winning marmalades is that they source all of their bitter oranges from Seville, Spain.
The authentic cooking method for producing the finest jams and marmalades is the open copper pan method and this is how all Mackays varieties are made.
