Tiptree. The first ‘Tiptree’ conserves were made in 1885 on their own estate. They are still made there to this day. Fruit crops include strawberries, loganberries, mulberries and damsons to name but a few. Their signature fruit is the Little Scarlet strawberry. A tiny wild variety, originally brought to the UK by the Wilkin family in the early 1900’s. It is believed that they are unique in the world in growing this difficult crop. However it is worth it for the quality of conserve it provides. Consequently quality gin liqueurs!
They received their first Royal Warrant from George V in 1911 and remain Royal Warrant holders as purveyors of ‘Tiptree’ products to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
‘Tiptree’ products can now be found in over seventy countries, on luxury cruise liners, in five star hotels and on top airlines.
