How do I Enjoy Brandy or Rum Butter?
Rum and brandy butter are both synonymous with Christmas. Slather generous helpings on mince pies and Christmas pudding. Delicious.
It can be frozen, and some people like to use Christmas shaped moulds to freeze the butter in to add a little extra festive fun to their desserts.
The good news is that you don’t have to wait until December to enjoy brandy and rum butter. Try spreading it on your toast – we particularly enjoy it spread on cinnamon toast. It’s fantastic on hot pancakes and a delicious accompaniment to hot apple pie. It really is versatile.
If you do find that you have extra rum or brandy butter leftover this Christmas, you could try this brandy butter cookie recipe we found here (https://www.irishcentral.com/culture/food-drink/leftover-brandy-butter-cookie-recipe). We think they would make a lovely treat for New Year.
Where can I buy them?
Here at Quiggin’s, we make Cumberland rum and brandy butter. They come in large and small pots and are perfect for Christmas dinner, wherever you are.
We also have traditional gift jars of both brandy and rum butter so you can buy someone special a jar of this tasty treat.
As a family business who has passed the Kendal Mint cake recipe down from generation to generation, we love continuing traditions, and our brandy and rum butter help maintain a proud longstanding tradition of many Cumbrian families.
