This loaf has a beautifully deep and rounded flavour from an ale that's produced by our local brewer, Tomos and Lilford and all the spice of traditional bara brith. With added walnuts and a little less sugar it makes it the perfect pairing for cheese of almost any kind. Equally good eaten plain or with a lavish spreading of good salty butter.  Your cheeseboard will never be the same!

The packaging makes this an ideal gift to send to a friend, colleague, client or family member. A beautifully designed, sturdy, printed box opens to reveal a paper-wrapped loaf which is hand tied with string.

If you're sending this as a gift or need it for an event, we can include a personalised handwritten message should you wish. Just leave us a note with the message you'd like included in the 'note to seller' box in the check out. 

“This traditional Welsh treat is a recipe that has been handed down through the generations in Wales. It’s a moist and fruity loaf, often made by soaking the fruit overnight in tea. Every family has their own little twist to add and we love Mel’s.”

We produce award winning Bara Brith fruit loaves in small batches from our home kitchen in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Each loaf goes through a tender 24 hour cycle that includes an overnight soak in its mixture, before being baked, packaged and sent through the post. Awarded 2 Gold Stars at 2014’s Great Taste Awards, our Bara Brith has been enjoyed by Royalty, graced the shelves of Fortnum & Mason, appeared on television and radio and has been enjoyed by 1000’s of customers across the country. Our Bara Brith proudly contains no artificial additives or preservatives, yet still has a good 2 week shelf life, not that they normally wait around that long once people get a taste!
