Welcome to the world of Billington’s Gingerbread 

Since 1817 the artisan bakers of Market Drayton, Shropshire, have been keeping a closely guarded secret: the coveted recipe of Billington’s Gingerbread.

With links to the ancient spice routes, Billington’s Gingerbread, is still crafted today using one of the oldest gingerbread recipes in the country. With a blend of secret spices, a dash of rum and the smooth velvetiness of golden syrup, Billington’s Gingerbread is composed into crisp gingerbread fingers that are perfect for dunking!

For over 200 years this rich, exotically spiced and crisp gingerbread, has been celebrated for its dunking delights by the farmers’ wives and people of Market Drayton. The famous gingerbread fingers have always been enjoyed dunked into a cup of tea, coffee or glass of Port. This tradition, which is still enjoyed today, enriches the flavour of the gingerbread, intensifying the sweet and the spicy notes for which the biscuit is celebrated.

Once tasted it is never forgotten!
