A GRAND TOUR OF THE UK
- baked goods from region to region

We start our Grand Tour of the UK with a visit to North East England, where the Stottie Cake has its origins. Our version is made with IREKS VEGAN SOFT ROLL CONC. and IREKS CRAFT MALT. It contains brown ale for a special twist. The Stotty is a dense eating product that is traditionally split and filled. Some common fillings include ham and pease pudding, as well as bacon, egg and sausage. The term stott means “to bounce” in the Northumbrian language. Bouncing here refers to the stottie finding its original shape and form when dropped onto the oven bottom.

North East

The county of Northumberland in the North East of England has many historical sites. Perhaps one of the most famous and visited ones is Hadrian’s Wall. Work on the wall began in AD 122 in the reign of Emperor Hadrian. The wall lies entirely within England and formed a boundary between Roman Britain and Caledonia to the North and runs for 117.5 km in total. In 1987, Hadrian’s Wall was declared a World Heritage Site. In 2005, it became part of the transnational “Frontiers of the Roman Empire”. This also includes sites in Germany.
