Christmas puddings have lots of different flavours and should be packed with fruit. This Taste The Difference Christmas Pudding had the perfect amount of fruit and the Gin-laced berry glaze gave a beautiful balance and added a unique flavour. The tasters enjoyed this Christmas pudding and said it has the perfect amount of sweetness but is balanced up with the gin glaze to add a little bite and loved the hints or clemintine throughout.

Packed full of sultanas, currents, plums, cranberries and brandy-soaked cherries and matured for 30 months, this pudding is mouthwatering.
