Blimey, anyone else noticed all this heritage malarkey doing the rounds? Distressed wallpaper in restaurants little more than six months old, half the city dressing like their grandparents, and people sipping cocktails not seen since before Prohibition. Well, we’ve got just the brand to tickle NYC’s vintage taste buds. Colman’s mustard is Blighty’s oldest food brands, “invented” in 1814 by a Norfolk miller who mixed white and brown mustards…. genius!
It has since become a quintessential British condiment, the striking yellow of the mustard itself matched by the distinctive packaging, complete with bull’s head. It received the Royal Warrant (denoting its use in the regal household) from dear old Queen Vicky, back in 1866 and has remained a firm favorite in Buckingham Palace’s store cupboard ever since.
Not as sweet as American mustard, Colman’s has an unapologetic kick to it. Much like wasabi, it is important to use sparingly if you want to avoid a nasal firestorm and streaming eyes! A classic adornment to a ham sandwich, or dabbed on a pork pie (we recommended Myers‘), or Cornish pasty.
We sell Colman’s in-store, or we can ship. Get in touch on 212-989-9735, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just remember – we said a dab!
