Tiptree Candles & Liqueurs

17th October 2016

We’ve all known and loved Tiptree for years for its delicious jams and marmalade– now the Wilkin family who have been making jam since 1885 are branching out and making:

Tiptree Natural Wax Candles and Rattan Reed Diffusers. 

The fragrances are inspired by the fruit grown on the firm and citrus fruits they use to make marmalade. Each candle has a cotton wick and bespoke blend of entirely natural waxes giving it a clean steady burn of up to 40 hours.  Each diffuser contains 100ml and lasts up to 8 weeks.




Soft subtle fragrances include apple, blackberry, Victoria plum, lemon curd, oranges and tangerine and of course their signature little scarlet strawberry.

As well as 220g candles there are themed miniature boxed sets too – Citrus, English Orchard and English Berries with four varieties in little jam jars – so cute!




Tiptree Gin Liqueurs – Joining up with the Hayman family, local gin-makers who’ve been making traditional London Dry gin since 1863 using a blend of natural botanicals; each batch is crafted in an artisanal copper named Marjorie after Grandmother Hayman. Tiptree berries which are hand-picked are then rested on the spirit to allow the rich fruit notes to steep through.  There’s English Damson and Little Scarlett Strawberry – sipped, shaken or stirred, they are sublime!
