Mrs. Robertson, wife of a local grocer in Scotland – James Robertson – took to making a sweet tasting marmalade in the back of the shop with bitter oranges that weren’t suited for sale.
The resulting clear and tangy Golden Shred marmalade was an instant success. The couple had found a way to remove the bitterness of the orange, whilst still retaining what mr. Robertson called “the highly tonic value of the fruit”. It is the same secret which even today, gives all of Robertson’s preserves their special flavour.
Since 1933, Robertson’s marmalade was rewarded for it’s excellent and natural sweet taste with a royal warrant.
