The company was founded in 1842 in Sheffield by George Bassett.

Perhaps the company's best-known Liquorice Allsorts, were created by accident in 1899 and in 1926 the Bertie Bassett, was created – Bertie continues to represent the brand today.

In 2016, the brand was joined with Maynards to create Maynards Bassetts.
