Many Baxter products are the invention of Gordon's wife, Ena. After any meal at home, it is cozily related, her husband may demand the recipe so that he can sell a million cans or so. Baxter's Chicken Gumbo—a totally un-Scottish food—she made from a Gourmet recipe: it sold a million cans the first year. Baxter's Minestrone (which even sells well in Italy) came into being at one of Mrs. Gordon's dinner parties. But it was Gordon himself, perhaps in a moment of desperate self-assertion, who came up with the idea of whiskey-flavored marmalade. Today connoisseurs expect that the finest marmalades should be matured for five years in disused whiskey casks.
