Leopold’s of London
According to the legend, orphaned as a child, Leopold was raised in the streets of London around the dockland markets. At the young age of 12 he stowed away on a merchant ship bound for the far east. Soon after setting sail the Captain of the boat learnt of the young stowaway’s hardships and rather than tossing him overboard he adopted him as his son.
Travelling through the Mediterranean, West Indies, the Orient and Africa he discovered a love for fine foods and rare spices. Upon returning to London, Leopold brought with him the love of foods he had discovered and a passion for exquisite teas and coffees. He soon established a small store selling fine and rare ingredients to the wealthy of London.
Upon hearing from his distinguished friends the King visited Leopold’s small shop and enquired whether he would supply the Palace Kitchens. With this Royal decree Leopold rose to become a prominent member of the London aristocracy and Leopold’s of London was born!
