The finest glacé cherries come from Provence in France, with the centre of production, the town of Apt, set in the Lubéron. Glacé cherries were only discovered by the British in the second half of the nineteenth century, and amongst these travellers was one Matthew Wood, who returned to England with samples for his family and friends. They were such a success that he began importing the cherries, and they soon became a vital ingredient in the Great British fruit cake.

We are able to offer the traditional red glacé cherry, as well as the natural coloured variety, in both wholes and broken, and in a variety of sizes and packs.
