The Traditional Aberffraw Biscuit is said to be Britain's Oldest biscuit

Legend has it that centuries ago a Welsh king was holding court in Aberffraw on Anglesey, North Wales. His wife was walking along the beach and was inspired by a scallop shell. She decided to have a cake baked in its pretty shape.

However, the true origin of the biscuit thought that Welsh pilgrims began pressing shortbread with scallop shells as a symbol of their famous Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain in the 13th Century. We hope you enjoy this taste of history!

  • Welsh shortbread pressed with the shape of a scallop shell
  • Made with the best quality butter, flour, sugar – creating a rich, buttery shortbread
