July marks the 200th Birthday of Colman’s. Along with the celebration of our country’s rich history comes fireworks, baseball and, of course, barbecues. Over the years mustard has grown to be America’s most popular condiment and is incorporated into millions of celebrations every July. It is often easy to forget the storied history that lies in one of the world’s most recognized brands of mustard, Colman’s Mustard.
Established in 1814, Colman’s Mustard of Norwich has been widely recognized as the most iconic English mustard. Using a unique and zesty blend of brown and white mustard seeds, Jeremiah Colman created a mustard that has become a paramount ingredient for recipes worldwide, even to the highest royal order. In 1866 Queen Victoria bestowed the ultimate seal of approval – the Royal Warrant – galvanizing Colman’s Mustard as the crown jewel of mustards, securing its place in the most discerning kitchens around the world.
Mustard has grown in the fields of England since Roman times, and mustard’s origin has been traced back to 460 BC to the pioneering Greek physician Hippocrates. Classified as an herb, black mustard seed’s ancient application was prominently medicinal. Mustard ranks as the number one condiment in the U.S., and has risen to acclaim as an edible accompaniment around the world.
