Bovril is a beef or chicken stock concentrate created by a Scot in 1886. Manufactured by the British branch of international company Unilever, there are over 3 and a half million jars sold on an annual basis. It is used to create a warming beverage by adding the concentrate to warm water. It can also be used in many recipes to add a rich, beefy flavour. See resource for recipes.
