OUR BRAND VALUES*

Originally the mustard was prepared by grinding the mustard seeds into mustard flour, combining this with finely-grated horseradish (and sometimes herbs and spices), then forming the mixture into balls which were then dried to aid preservation. The mustard balls would then be transported and sold in this form. To use the balls they would be broken apart then mixed with a liquid such as water, vinegar, wine, ale, beer, cider or fruit juice to soften them and mixed to a thick, creamy consistency. Often a sweetener such as honey would be added. The resulting mixture would then be used as a condiment just as mustard is used today, or as a cure for ailments

OUR COMMITMENTS*

Sustainability

We grow horseradish and keep bees for honey, we press & bottle our own apples all of which are incorporated into creating our unique flavours. It may mean more work but the reward is worth it, these flavours are all from Tewkesbury.

Environment

We only ever take what we need as and when we need it, we only extracted honey once a year (sometimes twice) leaving our bees enough food for themselves. Horseradish is always replanted, any waste horseradish is given to butchers and deli's for sausages. We try to make all of our products as environmentally friendly as possible by using recyclable materials.

Local Communities

Working with Tewkesbury businesses and having an end goal of being able to employ locals and give back to the town is why we started our company back in 2013.

Packaging & Waste

Most products produced by us are 100% recyclable.

Inspiring & Educating

Dating back as far as the 16th century with links to Shakespear, Tewkesbury Mustard has great history & provenance.

Energy Reduction

Our mustard premises is based in a domestic house in Tewkesbury, we are a small cottagers industry.

Nutritional Values

Researchers from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, found that the antimicrobial properties of mustard seed are so strong that, when added to hamburger meat, it could kill E. coli bacteria. Horseradish is a food that is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C and Folate.
