On the First Day Of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me A Jar Of Pickle From The Bay Tree

For food lovers everywhere there is a one company that never fails to excite the taste buds, particularly at Christmas time. So whether you're looking for gifts and stocking fillers for all the family or for the finishing touches and accompaniments to your festive feast – The Bay Tree has it covered, beautifully.

When trained chef, Emma Macdonald set up The Bay Tree from her mother's kitchen table twenty years ago, little did she envisage her home-developed range of chutneys and preserves, making such an impact on the Christmas season. Two decades later, the West Country brand has an inspiring collection of almost 200 lines, with many items designed with gifting in mind.

From a gorgeous set of five single serve Christmas orientated taster pots in seasonal red and gold packaging, through to traditional mulled wine sachets based on an old family recipe – there is a flavour to appeal to everyone – including a Curry Nights pack of spice blends and chutneys for discerning Dads with a taste for spice. 

From hot horseradish to an exotic array of mustards, jellies and sauces – including Cranberry of course – The Bay Tree's collection even includes a Christmas Pickle (a fruity mix of cranberries, apples and currants) and a Boxing Day Chutney (a tasty blend of apricots, orange and coriander) that's ideal for cold meat or cheese platters.

For the busy cook, festive store cupboard staples like rich, boozy Brandy Butter and Indulgent Mincemeat are on hand to help make preparations simpler. With so many award winning products available, from Passion Fruit Curd to Marinated Miniature Figs, great results are guaranteed for all your creative Christmas creations.

Emma explains her love of the Winter holidays: “Christmas is such a special time and giving or receiving sensational tasting food is always a real treat. We all know that it's the one time of year we let ourselves really indulge! It gives me such joy to have been able to bring our West Country made ranges to so many Christmas dining tables over the past 20 years.”
