Hadji Bey

Hadji Bey Turkish Delight has been part of Cork tradition since 1902 when an Armenian Christian who was forced to flee the opression of the Ottoman Empire of the late 1890s settled in Cork. He set up shop here using a recipe he had learned at a part time job Constantinople while studying law there. The product became loved and famous and was exported to Buckingham Palace and Bloomingdales. No Cork home was without Hadji Bey Turkish Delight at Christmas time. If you miss out on the story of Hadji Bey, then you miss out on part of the history of Cork.
