Walker’s Shortbread, producers of the finest shortbread for 125 years, has shared a long association with the Royal Family since 1977 with the release of the first official Royal tin for Her Majesty’s Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee. In 2017, the brand was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment for the supply of shortbread to the Royal Household from Her Majesty the Queen. The distinction followed a granting of the Royal Warrant of Appointment by the Queen in 2002 for oatcakes, which was extended to all shortbread products in 2017.
“Our family shared in the profound sadness on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II whose warmth and dedication was truly inspirational. We feel honoured as Royal Warrant Holders to have been able to create these special, keepsake tins with such profound portraits marking Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II accession to the Throne,” said Nicky Walker, Walker’s Shortbread Managing Director.
“Our family has always shared in Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s deep affection for Scotland and the beauty of its countryside,” said Jim Walker CBE, Director of Walker’s Shortbread, third generation family member and recently appointed a Knight Bachelor award in the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood. “We pay homage to Her Majesty and invite everyone to join us in celebrating her remarkable seventy-year reign with these new commemorative tins.”
