Ormskirk Gingerbread

We are proud to offer, what are quite possibly, the only Ormskirk "style" Gingerbread for sale in Japan.

As somebody who grew up in Ormskirk, Lancashire, these biscuits were a part of my childhood. And aside from the odd packet of original Ormskirk Gingerbreads brought across by my parents when they visit, which apparently even then had been difficult to find in Ormskirk, I'd almost forgotten the taste of these Ginger cookies unique to the town of Ormskirk.

After a bit of research, and a lot of trial and error I think I've recreated a ginger biscuit that is faithful to it's origins. Of course most people have never heard of Ormskirk (either here in Japan or the UK based on my experience) and even fewer know of Ormskirk Gingerbread but these ginger biscuits/cookies are proving popular here in Tokyo.

So if you're ever in Tokyo please drop in a and pick up pack of, what are probably, the only Ormskirk "style" Gingerbread biscuits in Japan.
