Since 1817, the artisan bakers of Market Drayton, Shropshire, have been keeping a closely guarded secret; the coveted recipe of Billington’s Gingerbread.

Rich, exotic and famed for its ‘dunking delights’, historically the farmers’ wives and people of Market Drayton, Shropshire, enjoyed the celebrated gingerbread by dunking it into a glass of tea, coffee or Port on market day. This tradition, which is still enjoyed today, enriches the flavour of the gingerbread,bringing out the spicy notes for which the biscuit is celebrated.
