Their story begins over a hundred years ago, in the heart of the Yorkshire Pennines. It has a humble start, Lottie's Great Aunts; Mary and Edith Harrison, setting out to bake and sell their original recipes of regional specialities. Little did they know, it was the beginning of a legacy, a journey of a family’s passion for baking, handed down through three generations and the very start of the Lottie Shaw’s story. The urge to revive one of her favourites; The Yorkshire Parkin cake, a classic much-loved regional bonfire night treat, led Lottie to create her own brand... Lottie Shaw’s. Convinced once people tasted her authentic sticky ginger cake; a blend of oatmeal, ginger and black treacle, folk would enjoy it far & wide, all year round... and the rest as they say is history! Crowned as the ‘Official Taste Of Yorkshire’ in 2018 Lottie & her husband Ian built a new 12,500 sqft state of the art bakery, just a few miles from where her Great Aunts’ and later Grandfather ran the bakery over a century ago. This product has a minimum shelf life of 6 months from baking, so there is plenty of time to enjoy this treat.
